Grayson County authorities are repeating their pleas for the public’s help in finding a missing teen.
According to the Leitchfield Police Department, Savanna C. Crawford, 16, was last seen leaving her home on Penner Drive shortly after 7 p.m. April 10.
LPD Detective Kevin Smith said Tuesday the teen has been listed as a missing person in a national database and with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said “due to her mental state” Crawford is considered to be in danger.
She is described as being 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing about 110 pounds. She has blonde, shoulder-length hair with red highlights. She was last seen wearing a gray beanie-type hat, a dark shirt, gray sweatpants and black shoes.
Smith said law enforcement agencies have followed up on numerous leads and possible sightings of the teen, with no success in locating her. K-9 search teams from multiple agencies also have searched several locations for her, also unsuccessfully.
“There have been numerous postings on social media stating that she has been located and we would like to stress that this is not the case,” he said Tuesday.   
“Her family, friends and law enforcement love and miss her and want her home safely,” Chaffins said of Crawford. “Please ... help locate this child.”
Anyone with information on Crawford’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Leitchfield Police Department at 270-259-3850, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office at 270-0259-3024, or any law enforcement agency.
