Authorities are searching for a missing Oklahoma teen after she sent a string of concerning messages to her sister, according to a report.
Faith Lindsey, 17, was reported missing Nov. 4 after she disappeared from the Pauls Valley home, where she lives with her boyfriend, news station KFOR reported.
Her sister, Justice Lindsey, said Faith’s boyfriend first contacted her saying that she had vanished.
“[He] texted me Monday night saying that he can’t find her, that she’s missing, [and] freaking out,” she told the outlet.
The same night, Justice received a series of strange texts from her sister’s phone claiming that she needed a ride.
“She was misspelling a lot of things that night,” Justice said. “And Faith, she has very good punctuation and spelling, and that just wasn’t her.”
She said that Faith also repeatedly called her, only for the line to be dead when she picked up the phone.
“I have a gut feeling something did happen to her,” the sister said. “I really hope that she’s safe.”
Dozens of volunteers joined the search over the weekend near her home in Pauls Valley, which is about an hour south of Oklahoma City, news station KII reported.
“Every pair of eyes and every pair of boots are essential,” Brian Smith of Oklahoma City Metro Search and Rescue told the outlet. “It’s really important simply because law enforcement doesn’t have the manpower or resources to commit 30, 40 or 50 people out here to look at every inch of ground with so much other stuff on their plate.”
The Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation said the teen could be in Seminole, Garvin or Pontotoc County.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is encouraged to contact authorities at 800-522-8017.
