(CBS) MINT HILL, N.C. - The FBI is joining the search for Kayla Campbell, a 16-year-old Mint Hill girl missing since Sunday night, after police found items belonging to her near a Mint Hill-area pond, CBS affiliate WBTV reports.

"Detectives received several tips throughout the evening and are following up on all calls that were received," investigators told WBTV on Tuesday morning.

Investigators searched a local pond for several hours on Monday in search of the teen. WBTV reports that a second search of that area is planned for Tuesday as well.

Police were called to a home around 6 p.m. Sunday night where Kayla Campbell's father told them that his daughter was supposed to return home at around 5:15 p.m. Campbell was last seen at the house earlier that day around 2:30 p.m.

Kayla Campbell's brother, Josh Campbell, told WBTV Monday night that his sister was battling with depression and was working with professionals who were "getting her the help she needs."

Searchers pulled a bicycle out of the pond Monday afternoon but it is unclear if it belonged to Campbell, the station reports. People in the search party told WBTV they found several other items that belonged to the teen but did not find her.

Detectives say they do not suspect foul play but they are running down every lead to find the missing girl.

Kayla is approximately 5'6" tall, 115 lbs, with long brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance is encouraged to contact the Mint Hill Police Department at (704)-545-1085.
