AURORA, Colo. -- For 16 days, Sabrina Jones has been glued to her phone hoping for a call from her missing 16 year-old daughter, Lashaya Stine. 

Stine went missing on July 15.

Aurora Police just released new video Monday, showing Stine on the morning of her disappearance.

In the video, you see Stine near East Montview Boulevard and Peoria Street walking by herself during the early morning hours.

“Even though she did leave at two o'clock in the morning, I don't think she meant to stay gone,” said Jones.

Jones said she believed her daughter would come back home because she left her  phone charger, wallet, and she didn't pack any clothes. 

Jones tells Denver7 her daughter is an honor student and was supposed to start an internship today. 

"She had an internship at university hospital for the next five days, she wouldn't have missed it for the world. She was so excited,” Jones said. 

Aurora Police received an additional tip on July 23 that Stine was wearing a black tank top and blue shorts. 

Detectives are asking for the public's help as they continue to follow up on new leads in this case. 

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 immediately or contact Detective Sergeant Chris Poppe at 303-739-6130.
