LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – Two of three girls who ran away into the crowd during the Salem Super Cruise in June have still not been located, according to our print partner, the Lisbon Morning Journal.

The girls, who are in the custody of Columbiana County Jobs and Family Services, were reportedly being housed at a Mahoning County facility when they obtained permission to attend the Salem Super Cruise, which was held the weekend of June 18. Police reports at the time stated several girls from the group home attended the cruise.

Columbiana County Sheriff Ray Stone told the newspaper that three girls ran away, but one girl eventually turned herself in. The other two girls have not been seen since June 27.

Salem police were called to the 100 block of South Ellsworth the evening of June 26 regarding the girls, but were unable to locate them at that time. The sheriff’s office added the missing posters of the girls to Facebook last week in an attempt to get more leads through social media.

One of the girls, Jessica Phillips, 17, is 5-foot-6 and 125 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. She has piercings in her ears and belly button. Additionally, she reportedly has visible scars on her legs and wrists.

The second girl, Cambra Kauffman, 16, is 5-foot-7 and 210 pounds with blue eyes and black hair with brown highlights. She has tattoos on both her right and left forearms and her right upper arm. She also reportedly has a piercing on her upper lip and scars on the right side of her neck, both her arms and her right calf.

Stone said both girls have relatives and other connections in Columbiana County. If anyone has seen them they are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 330-424-7255, Help Hotline at 1-800-424-7767 or the Columbiana County JFS at 330-420-6629 or 330-420-6618.
