Teen girls run away from hospital, 1 found in Fla.

VILLA RICA, Ga. -- One of three teen girls who ran away from a behavioral sciences center in west Georgia has been found in Florida.

The girls disappeared from Willowbrooke at Tanner in Villa Rica on May 12. Villa Rica Police Capt. Keith Shaddix said the teens stole a pickup truck and drove it to Panama City.

On Saturday, 17-year-old Samantha Abbott of Dallas turned up at a Florida hospital. Shaddix said she was hurt, but her injuries were not serious. She has since been returned home.

The other two girls -- Audrey Aldridge of Hiram and Madeline Terry of Franklin -- are still missing. They were last seen in Panama City.

Aldridge is 16 years old, white and has red hair. Terry is 15 years old, white, 5 feet 2 inches tall and 115 pounds, with brown hair.

The girls were last known to be driving the stolen truck, a silver 2004 Ford Ranger SuperCab with Georgia tag PAS6040. Shaddix said they may have switched the vehicle's license plate.

Anyone who sees the girls is asked to call 911 or Villa Rica Police at 678-840-1320.
