Castro is described as 5’3”, 115 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.  Before her disappearance, she had been using several apps including Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter.  Her cousin reported she had asked to be picked up in a Snapchat message earlier that morning and that someone was coming to get her.
