Three teen-aged girls from Goldsboro have been missing for months, and police are seeking information on their locations.
The three are Jessica Trelaine "Jessie" Moore, 16, of 310 Kennon Court; Laquinda Barrett, 14, of 915-A Hugh St., and Jennifer L. Oates, 17, of 501 Dixie Trail.
Ms. Moore left home on Dec. 27 and called later that day to say she was going to a party at an unknown location. She is on probation. She has run away in the past and telephoned her sister Jan. 8. She was described as being 5-feet-8 and 120 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Ms. Barrett, who also uses the name Quinn Davis, left home Jan. 3. She was seen last March 23 with a man known only as Jimmy in the 3000 block of Thoroughfare Road. She was described as being 5 feet tall and 120 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Ms. Oates left home Feb. 20 after a confrontation with her guardian about numerous school absences. She has been seen in Courtyard Apartments and the Wayne County Library, her guardian said. She was described as being 5 feet tall and 195 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on the location of any of these girls was asked to call police Investigator Paige Learnard at 580-4243 or 705-6572.
