SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – It has been eleven days since a Spokane Valley teenager left home, telling her parents she was going to spend the night at a friend's house on September 4. Abby Shearer has not been seen since.

Her family has plastered posters at bus stations, convenience stores and the county fair looking for her, but no one has reported seeing anything. Her family says Abby's friends are telling inconsistent stories about the last time she was seen and what she was doing.

"Nobody (in the family) has had any contact with her, so I just thought something is not right," said Carrie Major, Abby's mom.

Major says her daughter has run away from home before, but always called or sent text messages to tell her family she was safe. The family has not heard anything.

"You wake up crying and you go to bed crying because you don't know where your child is," said Major. "You're wondering if she's okay."

Family members have contacted Abby's ex-boyfriend, the friend she was supposed to spend the night with and her friends from school, but no one can give a clear message about where Abby was last seen.

Her family says it is possible she is hitchhiking to Missoula, Montana where her current boyfriend lives.

Anyone who sees the 13-year-old is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 or 9-1-1 immediately.
