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.

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.
