The police are investigating the mysterious death of a 13-year-old girl who was declared dead after being dropped off by a man at a hospital in Massachusetts, just one day after her family said she was running away from home.

Chloe Ricard died in the emergency room at Lawrence General Hospital, about 30 miles north of Boston, on Monday evening shortly after the man had informed the medical staff that the teenager needed help.

Authorities say the teenager, who was in eighth grade at Solstice Day School, had a cardiac arrest.

The man who drove her to the hospital left shortly after reporting staff about the girl's condition, but was later tracked down by the police through a surveillance video.

The police did not disclose information about the man but said no charges were filed as part of their investigation.

Chloe & # 39; s family, who said she had had problems five years ago after her father's death, demanded answers in her death.

The family indicated that they were in the & # 39; wrong place with the wrong people & # 39; used to be.

Her mother Deborah Goldsmith-Dolan and stepfather Brian Dolan said they last saw Chloƫ when she was dropped off at a friend's Sunday afternoon.

They said they often sought comfort from her friends when she felt sad or angry.

When Chloe didn't come home that evening, her mother contacted her daughter's friends on Monday morning and she was convinced she was fine and she was with a friend.

She said the Department of Children and Families contacted her to report that there were & # 39; red flags & # 39; were that Chloe might want to run away from the state.

Her mother reported that Chloe was missing at the police station. While she was there, Goldsmith-Dolan said she received a text message from her daughter's girlfriend who said Chloe was in the hospital.

& # 39; Who can do that? Who can take her and dump her? It's just the most heinous act, & Goldsmith-Dolan told WCVB.

Chloe's stepfather described the teenager & # 39; s death as & # 39; so complicated & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Chloe was a great kid. She was pretty smart. She was smart. She was beautiful, & he said.

& # 39; Only the wrong place with the wrong people.

& # 39; I tried to divide it together, like trying to get hold of her friends to see if I can find out what's going on and that nobody tells me anything. & # 39;

An autopsy was performed on Tuesday, but the medical investigator's statement about her cause of death is not expected to be released for some time.
