Colorado police searching for missing, endangered teen girls last seen at therapeutic foster care

Police are searching for two teenage girls who left a therapeutic foster care facility together on July 7.

The Preston Citizen reports that Anna Frankman and Emma Stokes, both 16, were last seen at Park County, Colorado, foster care home on the night of July 7. Both girls are considered endangered as they each take medication for what the report describes as “significant mental health issues.”

According to the Idaho State Journal, the girls left the home without their backpacks or mobile devices, or any money. They may have been picked up by a vehicle on a highway near the home.

Emma Stokes is from Sherman, Texas, where her adoptive parents are increasingly concerned about her well-being.

“It took a while to sink in,” Emma’s mother Lisa Stokes, told KTEN about the disappearance. “It felt almost like it wasn’t happening.”

“They truly are at a much higher risk because of the mental health issues and not being on their medications than the average teenager that might get mad and leave home.”

Both girls are the same height and approximate weight: 5 feet, five inches tall and weighing 110 pounds.

Frankman, who is from Idaho, has long brown hair and was last seen in jeans and a gray hoodie, according to the Idaho State Journal. Stokes has blond hair with highlights and was reportedly last seen wearing a navy hoodie and jeans.

Anyone with information about the teenagers is urged to contact the Park County Sheriff’s Office at 719-836-4121.
