According to New Hampshire station WMUR, Wendell Noyes was rushed by ambulance to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital.

Celina was last seen at her home on July 25. Investigators say there's no indication she ran away or someone took her, nor are there signs of a struggle.

State police, fish and game and the U.S. Border Patrol have been helping search the area looking for the girl. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said it is still being treated as a missing persons case. The FBI joined the search late last week with a four- to six-person "child abduction rapid deployment team." 

Celina's friend, 11-year-old Makayla Riendeau, described the girl as very athletic and a stickler about getting her school work done on time.

"She's a very good friend, and she never lets anybody down," Makayla said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the state police at 603-846-3333.
