BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) -

Police believe a 15-year-old girl from Waterbury, who was last seen with a 20-year-old man this weekend, could be in danger.

The Bridgeport Police Department is searching for Brianna Schroeter. She was last seen on Sunday at the Refuge Temple Church of God, which is located at 3050 Main St.

Police said Schroeter lives in Waterbury, but was visiting the Refuge Temple Church of God with her family on Sunday.

"I'm very fearful, that's my baby, my only child, out there by herself, 15 years old, I'm devastated," said her father Dwight Schroeter. "Normally she waits for me after church if I have anything to do, I'm involved, she sits and waits for me and after church we drive home, and she was nowhere to be found."

Now, police said they believe that Schroeter is with Bridgeport resident Michael Pettway. Investigators told Eyewitness News that they believe she could be in danger.

Police have issued a Silver Alert for Schroeter. She is being described as 5’3” and weighs 120 pounds with a medium complexion. Schroeter was last seen wearing a blue North Face fleece, grey sweatpants and flat shoes.

Police said that Schroeter and Pettway may be using the names Dominque and Jamar Richardson or Baker. 

Both families are concerned, police said.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked the Bridgeport Police Department at 203-581-5184.

The family of Schroeter released photos of their daughter to Eyewitness News. To see those photos on your mobile device, click here.
