Police: Information key to finding Hope Mills teen
Posted March 19
Hope Mills, N.C. — Hope Mills police have gotten tips almost on the hour in the search for missing South View High student Danielle Locklear, Capt. David Servie said in an update to the media Wednesday evening.
Danielle, 15, is bi-racial and has black hair and green eyes. She stands 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 150 to 160 pounds, and she has been missing for more than a week.
The teenager left her grandparents’ home on Trencholm Lane in Hope Mills' Fox Meadow/Brook Ridge subdivisions on March 11 to visit a friend.
She never arrived. Her grandfather contacted police the next day.
After more than a week, few clues have surfaced. Investigators have searched an area by a creek that runs near the neighborhood, a local hangout for teenagers.
Police are conscious that because of Danielle's age, she may have a wider circle of contacts than her parents realize.
"We have to talk to people who know her so that we can learn about her so that we can find Danielle," Servie said.
He asked that people with information about Locklear or her disappearance contact the Hope Mills Police Department at 910-425-4103 or the FBI in Charlotte at 704-672-6100. "The most important thing is information," he said.
