West Kelowna RCMP are looking for two teenaged girls, both with a history of running away, who left their homes late last month and earlier this month and have not returned.

Police say 15-year-old Raven Graham, left her home on the 3200-block of McGregor Road on Oct. 30, but has not returned. Raven does have a history of running away and has been known to frequent City Park in Kelowna , the Queensway bus loop in downtown Kelowna, the Gellatly Dock on the Westside and downtown West Kelowna.

Jessica Depres, 14, has not been heard from since leaving her home on McCann Court in West Kelowna sometime on Nov. 7. She was last seen at the West Kelowna Youth Centre around  9 p.m. on Nov. 7.

Like Raven, she also has a history of running away and police say she is known to lead a "high-risk" lifestyle. Jessica is known to attend the Boys and Girls Club in downtown Kelowna as well as the Youth Centre in West Kelowna but may also be frequenting City Park, the Queensway bus loop, and downtown West Kelowna, added the RCMP.

The two girls know each other and police say they could be together.

Raven is described as a Caucasian girl, 5'5", 118 pounds, with shoulder-length dyed-blonde hair and blue eyes.

Jessica is described as Caucasian, 5'2", 128 pounds, with short dyed hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of either girl  is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880.
