"She was on a website called and she left to go meet up with this person and I haven't heard from her again," Christina Papik told 1010 WINS reporter Mona Rivera.

Earlier attempts by friends to reach Alisa by phone, text or social media were unsuccessful.

Papik said her daughter has never run away from home before.

"This is the first time that this has ever happened," Papik said. "I'm really scared."

A witness told the family that Alisa was seen early Sunday morning at the Ronkonkoma train station, Rivera reported.
