Friend shocked by teenager's sudden disappearance

Email

Angela Tschida, the 14-year-old Cottage Grove girl who police think left town with a 36-year-old sex offender, gave friends no indication she was troubled or planning to run, said friend Cole Bertram.

"She seemed normal," Bertram said. "She seemed happy."

Bertram said Tschida had a lot of friends and was in frequent contact with them before she left.

"I have a text from her almost every day saying 'Hey, what's up,' or 'Hey, what are you doing?'" Bertram said.
