Five teens missing, may be headed to Tennessee
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office says five teenagers are missing and may be heading to Tennessee.
Investigators say Matthew Brett Miles and Katlin Marie Tennant, both 14 from Leland, and three other teens from Columbus County are missing. The Columbus County children are Christa Smith, Amber Yurgel and Kaitlyn Pagget, all 13.
Detectives say Tennant took her parents olive green 2008 Volvo with NC plate RWP-9142. A Facebook message says the teens were going to take a joy ride to Tennessee. At about 4:30 a.m. the Volvo ran out of gas in Lumberton near US 74/I-95. Deputies say a motorist helped the teens by putting gas in the car.
The only tie known to Tennessee is that Miles’s family vacationed in Gatlinburg a year ago.
