Samantha’s mother Jaclyn and her family were “distraught” that the teen was missing.

According to Jaclyn, the teenager sneaked out to meet her ex-boyfriend.

She walked into Riverside Park in Schenectady, New York around 11:30 p.m. on November 25 and has not been seen since.

Jaclyn said in a GoFundMe post that her daughter’s ex was the last person she saw.

The mother did the post hoping to raise money to hire a private investigator and a lawyer.

She wrote: “We [presumably the family] I believe the current search protocol with the police is progressing too slowly on this time sensitive matter.

Jaclyn said the family is not working at the moment and that the money will “also help support us at home as we process this grief and the trauma it is causing us.”

Samantha was wearing a black and pink puffy jacket before she disappeared, which was pictured on social media washing up near water.

The teen’s mother claimed on GoFundMe that “her coat was found in the river with what appeared to be blood on the hood.”

Police said they found the person who took the picture and are in contact with him.

FAMILY SPLIT

While Jaclyn might want to hire a private investigator on this case, Samantha’s grandfather, who raised her for the latter half of her life, John Matarazzo, told the Daily Gazette that he and his wife Diane don’t want a PI and support the police.

“Your mother is desperate,” Matarazzo said. “But she just doesn’t understand – we don’t need money to find the girl.

“A private detective won’t find the girl. She’s not hiding anywhere.

He added, “If Samantha was alive, at least she would have let us know that she was alive. Because she cared about us.

“So there’s no way I can believe she’s hiding somewhere. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t feel like it.”

Matarzzo believes the Schenectady Police Department is “working hard”.

“It hurts when someone says they’re not doing their job. They want nothing more than to end this because this is their purpose in life and their life.”

He also said that “the family thinks everything that should be done is being done,” which is at odds with Jaclyn’s post.

ALLEGED FIGHT WITH EX

Jaclyn told NewsChannel 13 that Samantha had a physical fight with her former boyfriend the same night she disappeared.

Jaclyn said Samantha bit her ex on his arm during the fight, the outlet reported.

The teen’s mother told the outlet Samantha told her, her school counselors and friends that her former boyfriend was abusive.

According to the outlet, this prompted Jaclyn to tell her daughter to stay away from him.

Jaclyn told CBS 6 that Samantha’s last calls were to her former boyfriend, according to her daughter’s phone records.

She said Samantha’s brother spoke to her ex after she disappeared and the former boyfriend said he was with her the night she disappeared and said they had an argument.

“I want Samantha to know that everyone is very scared and she is loved dearly and we just want her in our home as soon as possible,” Jaclyn told the outlet.

“So if for some reason she’s out there doing her Sam thing and enjoying watching that or seeing anything else on the news, hopefully she knows how much of an impact it’s having on me and the rest of her family and her friends and the parents all of her friends.”

Police were reportedly in contact with Samantha’s ex-boyfriend.

The cops have not identified any suspects in their investigation, but they have had the help of the State Police Aviation Unit and the dive team.
