Alicia was last seen at her home in Aiken on Sunday evening. It is believed she left sometime during the night. She is believed to be with twin sisters Sabrina and Summer Steen. A pistol was also reported missing from the home when Alicia went missing, Aiken Public Safety Sgt. Jake Mahoney said in an e-mail.

Alicia is described as light-skinned black with brown eyes and black hair, about 5-feet tall and 120 pounds. Sabrina and Summer are 14 and described as white with reddish tinted hair.

Investigators think the trio may be in the Camden, S.C., or Florence, S.C. area.

Anyone with information that might help locate Alicia is asked to contact the Aiken Department of Public Safety at (803) 642-7620 or Crimestoppers of the Midlands at (888) CRIME–SC. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of between $50 and $1,000.

And the 14 year old twins she

And the 14 year old twins she supposedly is with are not reported missing? Nobody cares where they might be? Odd.

Sounds like they are

Sounds like they are runaways. Not quite the same as missing. Leaving home without permission and stealing a gun too boot? Sounds like a few kids need a good old fashioned whooping when they get back.

so what if they ARE

so what if they ARE runaways....no its not "quite" the same, but bottom line, these girls are still missing and at 14, not "quite" old enough to be out there alone. Are you implying that b/c they MAY be runaways, that the public shouldn't help in the search for them? 14 is a tough age - tougher for girls - they may or may not have an ideal home life, but regardless, are important no matter what. Hopefully they will all be found safe and sound very soon.

AC, Wouldn't it be smarter to
Unpublished

AC,

Wouldn't it be smarter to allow this article to be viewable by all instead of just those who can afford to pay to see it? How do you expect all of the public to help you find this girl when you won't even let this be viewable to all of the public unless they pay for it?

If any of these kids were

If any of these kids were mine they would be taken the wood shed out back and not come back in the house till they were too sore to sit down without a yelp. Kids today have no common sense at all. I blame the lack of parenting on the problems of our children today. Parenting has taken a back seat to making money etc.
