A Missouri teenager has been missing for 11 days and may be in Minnesota.

Savannah Leckie, 16, was found missing from her home in Ozark County, Missouri, on July 20. According to an appeal from Locate the Missing, she could have headed to one of several cities in Minnesota.

She is believed to have left her home in a car, judging by the belongings taken with her, and the appeal for information has now been extended to Minnesota, where she has extended family.

KSTP reports residents of St. Michael, Albertville, Carver, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, Fridley, Plymouth, Maple Grove, Rockford, Forest Lake, Otsego, Park Rapids, Moorhead and Lino Lakes have been asked to be on the lookout for Leckie, who goes by the nicknames "Mouse" and "Andy."

She is described as around 5 feet 3 inches tall with long, dark brown hair and blue eyes.

The Ozark County Sheriff's Office told the Ozark County Times that Leckie has autism but is very high-functioning, saying people would not know she has the condition from speaking with her.

She was discovered missing by her mother, who said Leckie left their family farm overnight between July 19 and 20, the newspaper notes.

Anyone with information should call 417-679-4633 or dial 911.
