Isabella Oleschuk, the 12-year-old Orange girl reported missing Sunday, may have been spotted at a fast-food outlet in Fairfield on Monday night, according to a report to Fairfield police.
The report, however, could not immediately be confirmed.
The Duchess employee who spotted the girl believed to be Isabella, about 9:24 p.m. Monday, didn't notify police until a police officer later entered the fast-food restaurant at 625 Post Road. Surveillance video from the restaurant was handed over to Orange police as well as the FBI to confirm the possible sighting of the girl.
Sgt. Suzanne Lussier, a spokeswoman for Fairfield police, said Tuesday that, "It was only on the chance that the officer walked in that it was reported."
She said anyone who spots a someone believed to be a missing person should call police as quickly as possible.
"Stall them, do anything you can," said Lussier, "but please don't delay on any notification of a serious nature."
The girl who visited Duchess allegedly had the same features and blonde hair as Isabella, according to the eyewitness account, but her clothing was different from the clothes the missing girl was reportedly wearing.
Isabella Oleschuk is described as a white female, 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing about 120 pounds with blue eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair.
Any possible sighting should be reported to the Orange Police Department at 203-891-2130.
