YCSO: 3 teens run away from northern Arizona treatment center

DEWEY, AZ - Three teens who ran away from a northern Arizona treatment facility are now believed to be in the Tolleson area, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

Spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said 14-year-old Amber Bryant Williams, 15-year-old Spring Rose Smith, and 17-year-old Kristen Rempp were last seen on the Mortimer's Farm property at Highway 69/169 around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night.

The teens attend the Dewey campus of the Mingus Mountain Girls Academy, a residential treatment center at-risk girls.

Authorities originally said it's possible a boyfriend of one of the teens intended to pick the group up in the Phoenix area, but it's unclear what has led them to now believe the teens are in Tolleson.

Bulletins were issued Sunday night declaring the girls as missing while law enforcement agencies continue their search.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sheriff’s Office immediately at 928-771-3260.
