THE BRONX - A Bronx father appealed to the public for help finding his teenage daughter, who has been missing for more than a month.

Ashley Bissal, 16, was last seen June 23 at her boyfriend's graduation. She was supposed to pick up her little sister at school but did not show up.

Her father, Ravi Bissal, held back tears as he joined local leaders, members of the clergy and police outside the 41st Precinct building to bring renewed attention to the case. He asked anyone who may have seen his daughter to contact police.

Family members say they are thankful for the support they have received so far in the search for the missing teen, but they say her boyfriend and his family have not been fully cooperative in the search.
