PURDY, Mo. -- Police here are asking for the public’s help to find a missing teenager. Lacey Stockton was last seen Saturday night at her home when she told her parents that she was going to bed. Her parents woke up the next morning with the front door open and their daughter gone.
Stockton’s grandmother, who lives next door, saw two cars in the driveway at 4:30 a.m. No clothing or other items are missing from Lacey’s room. Her family says, if she left on her own, it is odd that she wouldn’t have packed a lot of clothes and make-up.
Stockton is 14 years old, 5’ 1/4” tall, 85 pounds, has blonde hair and blue eyes and a mole in the center of her chin. She has five ear piercings, to on the right, two on the left. She is a freshman at Purdy High School.
None of Stockton’s friends say that they have seen her. Friends told her mother, Tracy Dobyns, that Stockton has been seeing a man who is believed to be 19 years old, described as a Hispanic male.
Family members and friends have circulated about 1,000 fliers, in both Spanish and English, in the area. Purdy is a few miles south of Monett.
Anyone with information that might help police or her family find Lacey can call the Barry County sheriff’s office, (417) 847-3121.
