TAYLOR COUNTY—A local family has been working to track down two missing teenagers for nearly a week and are asking for the public’s assistance in the matter.
17-year-old Alana Cotrill was last seen on Wednesday evening heading on foot into a wooded area in Taylor County with her boyfriend 16-year-old Noah Carlyle, according to her mother Duare Doughty.
Doughty shared that she and other family members had been in contact with the Grafton Police Department, Taylor County Sheriff’s Department and the West Virginia State Police in attempts to bring Cotrill and Carlyle home safely.
Cottrill has been described as being five feet, one inch tall, with a slender build, only weighing approximately 80 pounds. She has dirty blonde hair and brown eyes.
Carlyle stands six feet tall and weighs approximately 175 pounds. He has brown hair, blue eyes and wears glasses.
“We are extremely worried about you, Alana, and we want you home where it's safe,” Doughty voiced. “Please, if anyone has any information on the whereabouts of my daughter, please contact me.”
Because of information they have already received, the family believes the pair is still in Taylor County, and they are asking for anyone with any information or those who may have seen the teens to contact them via phone.
