LUMBERTON - A Lumberton woman says her 15-year-old daughter has been missing since the girl failed to return home from school on Friday.
The teenager is one of two missing people the Lumberton Police Department is seeking help in finding. The second person, a 21-year-old woman, has been missing since October.
Angela Marie Holmes was in class all day at Lumberton Senior High, but never got on the bus to come home, according to her mother, Beverly Robeson. The freshman was last seen at the school wearing a black, long-sleeved T-shirt, faded blue jeans and a black and orange Harley Davidson jacket.
"She's never done this," Robeson said. "We've talked to some of her friends and they say they haven't heard anything."
Robeson filed a missing-person report Friday evening. Lumberton police Sgt. Don Ward said he does not suspect foul play.
Robeson said that Holmes is 5 feet, 2 inches tall, 120 pounds, and has brown hair and eyes.
Ward said his office is also looking for 21-year-old Stephanie Lewis, who was last seen on Oct. 19.
Lewis is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall, 100 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. It is unknown what she was wearing when she disappeared. Her address is 63 Pills Drive, Rowland.
Ward said that Lewis told some people that she was going to try to catch a ride to Virginia after she left work at the Days Inn, where she was last seen. The Lumberton Police Department is involved because Lewis was last seen in the city.
"If she got into a car with anybody, we don't know who or where," Ward said.
Anyone with information about Holmes or Lewis is asked to call the Lumberton Police Department at 671-3845.
