Lincoln County authorities say they are continuing to search for two teen-age sisters who ran away from home late last month.
Detective Kelly Paris said the girls left home June 25. She said authorities have followed several leads, but the girls remain at-large.
Missing are Mahagony Smith, 17, and her sister, Aniya Symone Mickey-Weeks, 14. They were last seen June 25, when their godmother drove them to a home in the Slater Ridge subdivision off Beatties Ford Road in northwest Charlotte.
The sheriff’s office says the godmother did not realize the girls had run away from their McCorkle Road home.
Mahagony Smith is described as a black female, 5 feet 7 and 125 pounds. Her sister is a black female, 5 feet 6 and 120 pounds. Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Lincoln County authorities at 704-735-8202 or 704-732-9050.
