The FBI has joined the search for a North Carolina teenager who vanished after leaving her home last week.
Danielle Locklear, 15, of Hope Mills, was last seen on March 11 by her grandfather when she left his home in the Fox Meadow/Brook Ridge Sub-Divisions.
Her grandfather told police she left to go to a friend’s house, but when he went to pick her up, she had never arrived, according to a press release from the Hope Mills Police Department.
Authorities said the girl may have been at a creek that runs between Legion Road and Cameron Road.
HLN affiliate WBTW reports some of her clothes were found near the creek two days after she went missing. Police K-9 and Hope Mills police officers, as well as the fire department, searched the area without success.
Police say Locklear has not been in touch with her friends, and her cell phone has been turned off.
HLN affiliate WBTW reports Locklear’s Facebook page indicates that she has ties to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Locklear is described as a bi-racial female with fair skin. She is 5’1” tall and weighs 150-160 lbs. She has long black hair and is known to wear it both up and down, straight or curly. She has green eyes.
