The Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two teens who may have run away from home.

On Tuesday morning, the sheriff’s office received a call about two runaway teens, according to a sheriff’s office Facebook post.

Both teens, Carissa McMillan, 13, and Sawyer Lemon, 14, were last seen around midnight Monday night at their respective homes in Gloucester, the post said.

“Both teens left notes for their parents describing their intent to run away from home,” the post reads.
