A family friend reported that the two left on the morning of Oct. 21 in Heriges’ car, a 1992 Mazda Miata convertible, black with a tan top, Tennessee license plate 848-GPD, Wilson County.
The family friend said they took money from Vanderpool’s bank account, left their cell phones and also left notes for their families. They have not been heard from since, the friend added. The friend noted that the two have been listed as runaways, and information about them has been sent to law enforcement nationwide.
It is believed the two may have traveled out of state as the families of the girls found directions to North Carolina and Chicago, Ill. on their computers.
Moore said flyers with information about the girls have been sent to law enforcement in North Carolina and Illinois. He has heard back from authorities that the received the flyers and will be on the lookout. Moore has also talked with the Student Resource Officer at WCHS who is also assisting in the matter.
Family and friends have distributed flyers in Wilson, Rutherford and Davidson Counties. Moore said if you have any information concerning the whereabouts of the two girls to call the Sheriff’s Department at 444-1412.
