Original Post: LoCO received an email from the aunt of one of two missing teens whose last known whereabouts were in Southern Humboldt.
According to the family member, 15-year-old Sylvia Davis and 17-year-old Hannah Thomas-Garner had been traveling with two men from the Shasta area in a 1996 white Ford Ranger extended cab pickup with a camper shell. The last known cell tower ping occurred in Myers Flat.
A few weeks back, one of their travel partners apparently told his grandma they were headed on a trip to the Lost Coast/King Range Area.
According to this piece by the OregonLive news site, Davis had planned to runaway. Thomas-Garner was last seen at a party in Jackson County, Oregon last Saturday. Her abandoned car was found in Shasta City on Monday.
Anyone with any information should call the Ashland Police Department at 541-482-5211.
