A massive manhunt is underway after a teenager who is obsessed with the Columbine shooting purchased a firearm and then went missing.

Sol Pais, 18 was reported missing by her parents on Monday and flew from Miami to Colorado just four days before the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

Although Pais has not committed any crime, she is deemed as a credible threat.

An interview circulating online shows someone who is said to be her father, saying that the whole ordeal is a “nightmare” and he is concerned about her mental health.

Pais was seen last week in the foothills west of Denver, according to law enforcement reports. They’ve been searching for her ever since.

“We started engaging with our local, state and federal law enforcement partners in the Denver metro area and all of them stepped up. This has become a massive manhunt in this AOR (area of responsibility), and every law enforcement agency is participating and helping in this effort. We are working diligently running down a significant number of leads to identify and locate Ms. Pais,” said special agent Phillips, who is in charge of the FBI in Denver.

Since then, schools in the Denver area have been placed on lockdown and some school districts have even closed to prevent any tragedy’s from happening.
