INITIAL REPORT: Police are asking the public to be on the lookout for two missing girls.

Maranda Knutila said her daughter, 16-year-old Lillian Faith Rene' Dunlap, and her daughter's friend, 16-year-old Olivia Louise Elkins, have been missing since about 8:30 p.m. Friday, November 30th. Knutila said the two ran away after she got into an argument with her daughter.

"I had gone down the hallway because I had heard from her little sister that she might be trying to run away. I went down the hallway and her bedroom door was closed and I opened it and they were gone," Knutila added.

Dunlap is 5'2" and has blonde hair, brown eyes and tattoo of a wave on her left rib cage.

Elkins is 5'2" and has brown curly hair with bangs. 

Knutila said Dunlap could possibly be wearing a tie-dyed sweatshirt, jeans and a beanie. She could have a backpack on and could be carrying a green should bag.

She said Elkins could be wearing a burnt orange sweatshirt that says 'Miguel's' on the back. Knutilla said some people have told her they've either seen one girl or the other girl so she's not sure if they are together anymore.  Other than that she hasn't heard much.

"We don't know where [Lillian's] at. I don't know anything at this point. We just want her to come home...I want my daughter back. She is my everything. If it wasn't for her I don't know where I'd be in this world. She's my rock and my strength and I love her so deeply. I'm so worried," Knutila said through tears.

Anyone with information should call the Central Point Police Department at 541-776-7206 and refer to the case number 18-8910.
