Authorities in Oklahoma are asking for the public’s help in locating two teen sisters who were reported missing on October 17.
The Edmond Sun reported that Shakira Russell, 13, and Tiara Russell, 15, (pictured left and right) left their Edmond home through a bedroom window. The sisters left behind medications that they need to take, according to KTUL.
The girls’ adoptive parent initially told police that the pair were attempting to meet their biological parents, one of whom lives in Oklahoma City. Since then, she’s told The Sun that she’s been speaking to the biological parents on a daily basis and that they have yet to hear from the girls.
KFOR reported that Shakira and Tiara confided in friends and classmates about their plans to run away during fall break.
On Facebook, Edmond police said they still don’t know the sisters’ location despite their investigators following several leads.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding Shakira and Tiara Russell’s whereabouts can call the Edmond Police Department at 405-359-4420.
