A runaway teen who left her western Lincoln County foster home Wednesday was located Friday at her boyfriendâ€™s home in Burke County.
Local Sheriffâ€™s authorities said Burke County deputies located Molly Eileen Hill, 15, of the 800 block of North N.C. Highway 18, at 18-year-old Jonas Kelly Dellingerâ€™s home in Morganton.
The teens were apparently dating, deputies said. In addition, Dellinger has been charged with aiding Hill in the incident, according to a press release.
He is expected to appear in Burke County district court next month for one-count of contributing to a juvenileâ€™s being delinquent and undisciplined.
Hill has been returned to the area and will eventually be handed over to juvenile authorities, a release said. Sheriffâ€™s Det. Matt Burgess is currently working toward securing a custody warrant in the incident.
Authorities are still on the hunt for another missing teen, 16-year-old Krysha Elizabeth â€œKittâ€ Allen, of Belmont. She was last seen at her fatherâ€™s Denver residence on Dec. 28. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Lincoln County Communications Center at (704) 732-8202, the Lincoln County Sheriffâ€™s Office at (704) 732-9050 or Crime Stoppers at (704) 736-8909.
