Search for missing girls in Loudoun

Loudoun County authorities are searching for three runaway girls they said have been missing since June 10 and are believed to be traveling together.

Eboni Collins, 12, Genesis Turcious, 13, and Tonya Calix, 17, were last seen together on Meadowview Court in Leesburg, authorities said.

Loudoun County Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell said the girls left on their own, but that officials are worried because of their ages.

"We know they left of their own will, but we’re concerned because they may find themselves in trouble out there by themselves," Troxell said.

Officials provided the following descriptions of the girls: Eboni, who is black, is 5 foot 9 and weighs 155 pounds. She has brown eyes and hair. Genesis, who is black, is 5 foot 2 and about 170 pounds. She also has brown eyes and hair. Tonya, who is white, is 5 foot 1 and about 125 pounds. She has brown eyes.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the girls is asked to call Investigator A. Harper at 703-777-0475 or 703-777-1021.

Each of these girls seem unhappy or depressed in the photos. My guess is that if they're not located in a few more days, some pimp has forced them to work.

perryneheum - maybe, just maybe these pictures weren't taken on a good day. I'm sure we all aren't going to be in the picture taking mood all of the time. As for these children, I pray that they are not being held against their will and being violated in any way.
