HAILEYVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- The search continues in southeastern Oklahoma for a missing Haileyville teenager.

Family members haven't seen 15-year-old Samantha Gragg since September 21st. The girl's aunt, Margie McElhani of McAlester, says the girl's father left home around 4:30 AM that day on his way to work. McElhani says Samantha was home when he left but didn't show up at school that day.

Haileyville Police Patrolman Tim Turman says authorities have looked all over Haileyville and Hartshorne and found no trace of her.

Police found no evidence of a struggle at home and neighbors didn't notice anything unusual that morning.

The girl was described as five feet, three inches tall, weighing 190 pounds with green eyes. She has red, curly hair that is black on the ends.
