Authorities are looking for teen girls who recently disappeared from their homes in Lincoln and Gaston Counties late last month and early January in two separate missing personâ€™s cases.
Molly Hill, 15, went missing around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday from her Lincoln County foster home in the 800 block of N.C. Highway 18, Sheriffâ€™s Office authorities said.
A foster parent reported the incident to deputies early the next morning, stating that Hill had â€œleft the home on foot,â€ according to a press release.
Authorities believe Hill may have fled to her 18-year-old boyfriendâ€™s home, located in the 3200 block of Music Mountain Rd. near Morganton.
The teen is a white female with shoulder length brown hair and green eyes. Authorities have described her as being 5-foot-4 and weighing around 110 pounds.
On Dec. 28, Kyrsha Elizabeth â€œKittâ€ Allen, 16, of River Park Rd. in Belmont, disappeared from her fatherâ€™s Stanley home on Forest Ridge Dr., a release stated.
Deputies said Allen was last seen that night around 10:15 p.m. and may have fled to West Virginia or California.
Allen has reddish-blonde hair and blue eyes and is described as being 5-foot-5, weighing 100 pounds, a release said.
Both juveniles have been entered as runaways into the FBIâ€™s National Crime Information Center.
Investigations into both disappearances are continuing. Authorities do not believe the two incidents are related.
Anyone with information on either teenâ€™s whereabouts is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriffâ€™s Office at (704) 736-8856 or Crime Stoppers at (704) 736-8909.
