Have you seen this missing teen? Fifteen-year-old Jessica Parham was last seen on Friday in her mother's Lewisburg, Tenn. home at around 7:30 p.m. She was reportedly wearing blue fleece pajamas and a white Tinkerbell top at the time of her disappearance. She stands at around 5'5" and about 170 lbs., with blonde hair and blue eyes. This disappearance is distressing due to the fact that officials have issued an "endangered child" alert -- which indicates that the girl is at heightened risk.
Some earlier reports seem to have her wearing a skirt at the time of her disappearance -- which has sparked suspicion among some. Her mother says that she left on foot, but there aren't enough details to know whether or not she is actually anywhere voluntarily.
Hopefully this disappearance has a happy ending, but Tennessee doesn't necessarily have a positive history with missing teens and women. Countless cases of this type remain unsolved including the 2011 disappearance of Holly Bobo -- who vanished from a town just two hours away from where Jessica Parham has vanished.
