The mother of a missing Craig girl has put her belongings in storage and is hitting the road to search for her daughter.

“It’s almost a year, and I don’t feel like the police have done anything. I have to do more, whatever I can to find my daughter,” said Jean Robertson, mother of 15-year-old Katrina Treacy, missing since Aug. 23.

The case is still under investigation by the Craig Police Department.

“Anytime that we get information or leads on the whereabouts of the runaway” — such as from Robertson — “we follow up with the appropriate jurisdiction and they do the checking,” said Craig Police Commander Jerry DeLong.

Robertson is certain that her daughter is still alive and has decided to follow-up on any leads herself.

“It’s been the most horrible thing in my life. Your whole heart is broken,” Robertson told the paper in March as she was preparing to celebrate Treacy’s 15th birthday without her.

Treacy is considered an endangered runaway by the FBI, is listed with the Colorado Crime Information Center, and was featured in an ABC 7 News Denver broadcast “50 Colorado missing children” in March.

“The classification of endangered means that she is missing under circumstances indicating her physical safety may be in danger,” according to the National Crime Information Center.

Robertson has also received help from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Robertson is on a fixed income from disability. She created a GoFundMe page and has raised over $250 toward a goal to raise $3,000 to help pay for costs of the search.

Treacy is five feet, four inches tall, 110 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Craig Police Department at 970-826-2360 or Jean Robertson at 970-620-1470.
