Investigators with the Escambia County Sheriff's Department are following leads and gathering information to help locate a 17-year-old Brewton girl who has been reported missing by family members.
Amy Capps was last seen leaving the home of her father and grandmother June 7, according to Escambia County Sheriff's Investigator Adam Johnson.
Amy was living with her father, James Capps, and her grandmother Annie Ruth Capps, on Willow Lane off Travis Road in Brewton.
Donna Capps Johns, Amy's mother, has been handing out fliers asking for help in finding her missing daughter.
Johns said her daughter had left home before, but only for three days.
Amy did come back home after a brief time, but Johns sees this disappearance as more serious.
Johns said Amy told her father and grandmother she was going to take a friend to the local recruiting office on the day she disappeared.
Johnson said he is acting on any tip in the case and will follow all leads to try and locate the missing teen.
Amy was last seen driving a two-door, red 1997 Dodge Avenger bearing license plate 96301AV.
Anyone with any information concerning the whereabouts of the teen is asked to call the Escambia County Sheriff's Department at 867-0304; the Escambia County Child Advocacy Center at 867-6245; any other law enforcement agency in their area or Donna Capps Johns at 363-2985.
