Kentucky State Police Post 4 is searching for a 16-year-old Clarkson girl who has been missing since Monday.

Brandi E. Higdon last was seen being dropped off at a restaurant in Clarkson where she told a friend she was going to be picked up by someone else and taken to school. However, she never showed up at school, police said.

Higdon left behind a note indicating her intent to run away for a few years before returning home, according to a KSP news release. The teen also took clothes with her.

Police believe Higdon is with 18-year-old Tyler Hill, who also has been missing from school since Monday.

Higdon is described as a white female, 5-foot-6 and 190 pounds. She has brown eyes and brown hair that falls below her shoulders. Police said she has stitches in her knee and scratches on her face from a car wreck she was involved in a few days ago.

Police described Hill as a white male, 5-foot-11 and 145 pounds. The two may be driving a silver Toyota Corolla with a Kentucky license plate of 591AFX.

The two teens possibly were seen Wednesday in the Opry Mills area of Nashville, according to a news release. However, they were not located once police were notified.

Though police said they have no reason to believe Higdon and Hill are in danger, authorities want to find the teens before they run out of cash.

“It is extremely important that we locate them before they resort to more desperate measures in obtaining more money," according to the news release.

Anyone with information about Higdon’s and Hill’s whereabouts is asked to call KSP Post 4 in Elizabethtown at (270) 766-5078 and ask for Master Trooper Norman Chaffins or Trooper Daniel Leonard.
