BALTIMORE, MD — The FBI is now in on the search to find a missing teen from our state.
Phylicia Barnes was reported missing last week while she was in Baltimore to visit family. Barnes, who is from Monroe, North Carolina, left the apartment she was staying at on December 28 to get something to eat and she never came back.
Pictures of Barnes are plastered all over Baltimore and police say while they have executed several search warrants so far nothing has turned up.
Barnes has no history of running away and was on track to graduate from high school.
Her family asserts that it is completely unlike Phylicia to disappear of her accord. She was on track to graduate high school early and make her way to college.
The teen was spending the holidays in Baltimore with a half-sister that she had recently met.
