(CBS/WFSB/AP) ORANGE, Conn. - The FBI has joined the search for 12-year-old Isabella Oleschuk, who was reported missing from Orange, Conn., just outside of New Haven, Sunday.

Oleschuk, the daughter of a local firefighter, is described as a white female, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, and weighing approximately 120 pounds, with blue eyes and shoulder length blond hair, reports CBS affiliate WFSB.

She was last seen in her home over the weekend, several miles from New Haven. Police say she may have left her home overnight.

Firefighters, as well as state and local police are searching for the seventh grader, according to WFSB. William Reiner, an FBI spokesman, said federal authorities are also assisting with the search.

Search teams have scoured wooded areas in Orange, along with neighboring areas in Woodbridge and West Haven.

Authorities say Oleschuck may be wearing a light blue jacket, brown felt hooded cape and black rain boots.

Police said they were made aware of a report of a young male and female walking together near Racebook School near a pond Sunday morning.

Anyone with information about that sighting, or any other information, is asked to call Orange police at 230-891-2130.
