Ashley Murray

A volunteer effort to search for missing 16-year-old Ashley Murray of Peconic is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

The community-driven search party will meet at the flagpole in front of Southold High School at 3 p.m. and will focus on searching areas in Southold, Greenport and Mattituck, including checking beaches and under bridges, according to the Facebook page “Ashley Come Home.”

Ashley’s mother, Charlotte, said her daughter left a suicide note that made reference to a “watery grave.” The Southold High School student has been missing since Monday.

Anyone with information about Ashley’s disappearance should contact Southold Police at (631) 765-2600. Information will remain confidential.
