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.

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.
