A Mandarin mother says her 13-year-old daughter, Kyleigh Kosters, is missing.
She was last seen at approximately 11 p.m. on Feb. 10 at her residence in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville, according to a missing person flyer from The Aware Foundation of Virginia.
The teen was reported missing to JSO and entered into the National Crime Information Center. A Florida Missing Child Alert has NOT been issued yet. @ActionNewsJax— Christy Turner (@ChristyANJax) February 12, 2018
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, officers responded to a home on Lake Fern Drive around 8 a.m. Sunday. Pillows were stuffed under bedsheets to imitate Kyleigh's body, JSO said.

Kyleigh's window was halfway open, according to the police report. Kyleigh has no cell phone or social media accounts that her parents are aware of, JSO said. The house is equipped with surveillance cameras, but no sign of Kyleigh was found when the tape was reviewed.
The JSO report said that Kyleigh has lived with her adopted parents for two years and "is aware of the cameras on the house and the angles they observe."
According to the JSO report, Kyleigh's dad said that she had been asking about "prostitution" and asking him if they live a good life, referring to prostitutes.
In the report, the father mentioned that Kyleigh referred to her bio mom as a prostitute. He said he found Google searches on the teen's computer asking "how to find a john" and "what is a pimp". @ActionNewsJax— Christy Turner (@ChristyANJax) February 12, 2018
Kyleigh's father reportedly monitors her Internet activity and found Google searches on her laptop asking "how to find a john" and "what is a pimp."
Her mother who identified herself as Kim Kosters, said on Facebook that she was worried Kyleigh had taken a bus somewhere.
The missing person poster also states that a friend of Kyleigh's told her family that the 13-year-old mentioned seeing her biological mother, who also may live in the Jacksonville area.
The Aware Foundation of Virginia is unaware as to what Kyleigh was last seen wearing but states that she packed a lot of her clothes.
