The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is trying to locate two 16-year-old missing juveniles from Destin.
Jenna Alsop and Skyler Kelly left Alsop's home on Ocean Drive Oct. 9 and left a note stating they would return that same evening but never returned, according to a Facebook post from the OCSO.
A Facebook page called "Bring Jenna Home" has been setup and is updating search efforts.
A recent post on the page reads: "These girls are long time best friends. Jenna went for a walk with her friend leaving her cell phone charging at home. We have not seen or heard from Jenna since Friday morning. Jenna does not have a car and her friend's car is still at home. The Okaloosa County Sherrif's Office has been working with us around the clock and today we will be expanding our efforts through various missing persons agencies. We have teams of people out hanging fliers in the FWB, Destin and surrounding areas. We are also checking available surveillance cameras where we can. This is very frustrating and we are completely heartbroken, but determined to find Jenna safe and bring her home."
As of Monday morning, Michele Nicholson, public information officer for the sheriff's office, told The Log the two girls had not been located.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts can contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office at (850) 651-7400.
