A local teen is one of two girls who ran away from a therapeutic foster home in Colorado and have been listed as missing.
Anna Frankman of Weston, a town located near Preston, and Emma Stokes, of Sherman, Texas, ran away from their foster home in Pine Junction, Colorado, on the night of July 7, Colorado authorities said.
The Park County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office said Frankman and Stokes, both age 16, were being treated at the foster home for “significant mental health issues” when they ran away together. The foster home is affiliated with the Institute for Attachment and Child Development in Littleton, Colorado.
Authorities said the girls are not a danger to the public but they are considered to be endangered because of their severe mental illnesses and lack of medication.
It’s believed that after running away the girls were possibly picked up by a vehicle along a nearby highway. The girls apparently fled their foster home without taking any electronic devices, money or backpacks.
Frankman and Stokes are each 5 feet 5 inches tall and weigh about 110 pounds.
Frankman has long brown hair and was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and jeans.
Stokes has dark blond frosted hair and was last seen wearing a navy blue hoodie with red print and jeans.
If you have any information on the girls’ whereabouts please contact the Park County Sheriff’s Office at 719-836-4121.
An account, titled “Fund for Anna Frankman,” has been set up to help Frankman’s family pay to go to Colorado to look for her. Donations can be made at Lewiston State Bank, Peoples Town and Country and Bank of American Fork.
