(KMOV) – A 14-year-old girl from Odin, Illinois is missing after running away with a boy she met on the Internet.
According to her parents, Nicola Hammond, 14, left her home voluntarily with her laptop and dog. They say she met up with Marty Harbour, a boy from Atoka, Oklahoma, whom she met on the Internet.
Hammond’s parents, Tom and Ladonna Hammond, viewed surveillance tapes at a Salem, Illinois Walmart confirming she is with Harbour. Tom Hammond believes that Harbour is 17 or 18 years old.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Department says they were spotted in Oklahoma yesterday after visiting Harbor’s relative. The relatives reportedly begged them to turn themselves in, but the two took off and have not been seen since.
Police say Hammond is in danger and the two are currently with Harbour’s mother.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Atoka Police, and Oklahoma State Police are investigating.
If you have any information on her disappearance call the Marion County Sheriff’s Department at 618-548-2141.
