Police are seeking information on the whereabouts of two 16-year-old girls from Monmouth and Sabattus.
Kourtney Francoeur of Monmouth left her Bonin Road home around 3 p.m. April 9, according to Monmouth police Officer Dana Wessling. He said the girl has run away before but never for this long.
Francoeur is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall, 103 pounds with blonde hair, brown eyes, a pierced tongue and piercing on the upper left side of her lip. Francoeur’s father reported he last saw her April 9, and she said going to the mall.
Francoeur is believed to be with Kayla Marin, 16, of Sabattus, who is also missing. Marin is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall with light-brown to sandy hair and brown eyes. She was last seen April 13 in Augusta and Lewiston, Wessling said.
Wessling said he and Sabattus police Officer Gil Turcotte are working together to locate the girls.
Wessling said he spoke to a third girl who told him she dropped Francoeur off at a home in Litchfield or Wales around midnight April 12.
On Monday, Sabattus Police Officer Dennis Matthews told the Sun Journal that Francoeur’s brother, Zach, reported over the weekend that he received a phone call from Marin asking for a ride. Matthews said that the man, who lives in the Augusta area, told authorities that Marin called about 12:30 a.m. Sunday and told him that she was calling from a pay phone in Lewiston. Matthews said that Francoeur’s brother did not pick Marin up because he didn’t have a vehicle, and that he told the girl to go home.
Matthews said the man did not mention anything about his missing sister or whether she was with Marin at the time of the call.
Anyone with information about the girls is asked to call Monmouth police at 933-9089, or Sabattus police at 375-6952.
