Woodward Police are seeking information leading to the whereabouts of a runaway teen.

Jenny Renae Wilson, 15, ran away from home June 22 and has managed to elude authorities since.

"She's a habitual runaway," Woodward Police Det. Mike Morton said. "She runs away all the time, but has never been gone for this long."

According to a police report, Wilson was actually spotted July 23 when a Mooreland police officer stopped a blue Ford Contour driven by Dean Leroy Freerksen III. Wilson did not appear to be in the vehicle, but police later received a tip that she had changed her appearance so that officers could not make a positive identification. She was last seen wearing a red halter top and jeans.

"It's hard telling what she's done to herself," Morton said. "She may have dyed her hair or cut it or something."

The report said officers believed Freerksen and Wilson were headed to Enid or Tulsa, but Morton believes she is a little closer to home.

"I'm pretty sure she's still in town," Morton said. "She probably has a lot of buddies hiding her out."

Morton said charges related to the runaway are pending against Freerksen, but would not comment any further. The detective is ready to reunite Wilson with her family.

"We've got to get her home," Morton said.

If you have seen Wilson or know of her whereabouts, call Woodward Police at 580-254-8518.
