One runaway Lincoln County teen found, another still missing

One Lincoln County teen reported to have run away from home last week has been found, but her sister remains missing, authorities said Thursday.

Aniya Symone Mickey-Weeks, 14, was brought to Carolinas Medical Center’s main hospital in Charlotte by her grandmother Wednesday evening complaining of abdominal pain. A Charlotte police officer verified her identity and told the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office told the Observer it doesn’t believe she had been with the grandmother since she was last seen June 25. The girl was sent home with her grandmother.

Her sister, 17-year-old Mahagony Smith, has yet to be found. Authorities described her as a black female, 5-feet, 7 inches tall and about 125 pounds.

Neither Aniya nor her grandmother said they knew where Mahagony is, the sheriff’s office said.
