Hannah McConnell, 13, and Gage Petherbridge, 15, Missing … Ran Away from Home Together

A nationwide search is on for 13 year old Hannah McConnell and 15 year old Gage Petherbridge who have run away together. The ran away from their homes Saturday with one family’s minivan, $680 in cash and a dog named Mandy. Looks like they have taken the important things in life. Don’t leave home without the Xbox. Think these two when found won’t be grounded until they are 18? Hopefully, they will be found safe.

The youths haven’t been seen since last Saturday, when Gage snuck out of his home and took the family’s white 1997 Pontiac Montana with Michigan license plate 6DYW54. They pair left with $680, clothing, an Xbox 360 and Gage’s dog, Mandy.

The Flint Journal reports the Vienna Township teenagers left notes and journal entries saying they were running away together. Julie McConnell says her daughter has bipolar disorder and left without her medicine. Mary Wismer says her son has had his learner’s permit since June and is a very cautious driver.

Genesee County sheriff’s Capt. Chris Swanson says police have reason to believe they may be in the area of Huntington Beach southwest of Santa Ana on the coastline in Orange County, California.

Runaways draw national attention

Hannah’s mother, Julie, said she was told police were following a lead in the Gladwin area and were also talking with her daughter’s classmates.

Their names have been entered in a national database along with the minivan, a white, 1997 Pontiac Montana, license plate number 6DYW54.

Gage, a ninth-grader at Clio High School, does not have a driver’s license.

The teens left home early Saturday with about $700 and Gage’s cocker spaniel, Mandy.

The teens apparently ran away to be together.

Gage’s MySpace page says “im lost without her” and that he is “completly inlove (sic) with hannah elane mcconnell and no one can ever change that.”

An entry for his mood on the page shows a sad blue face next to the word “distraught.”

Hannah’s MySpace page shows two hearts with the words “I know who I love.”

Missing Michigan teen called from Nevada, boyfriend’s family says

Teens call from the road that they are running low on funds. Funny how that happens when mommy and daddy are not there to provide for your every need. I guess the two showd have thought about that before they decided to run away. $680 just doesn’t get one very far these days, especially with the cost of gas. Then again, what would a 13 and 15 year old know about these things, or personal responsibility for that matter.

A 13-year-old Vienna Township teen, who ran off with her 15-year-old boyfriend and has been missing for a week, made a call to a friend today from motel in Nevada, family members of the boyfriend said today.

Mary Wismer, Gage Petherbridge’s mother, said Hannah McConnell called a friend in Swartz Creek, telling him that they were in Nevada, but running low on money.

Police are trying to track where in Nevada the call was made, Wismer said.

Jamie Sheridan, 31 and her 5 Year Old Son Missing Since the Night of January 18, 2008 in Utah

31 year old Jamie Sheriden and her 5 year old son have been missing since Friday evening, January 18, 2008. Authorities have commented that Jamie Sheriden suffers from a mental condition that could endanger the child.

  • Sheridan is a 31 year old white female
  • 5 foot 2 inches tall
  • 85 to 100 pounds
  • long brown hair that extends to the middle of her back
  • Officials say she was last seen wearing red sweat pants and an Army-type fatigue jacket.


  • The 5-year-old boy, whose name was not given
  • has longer brown hair that was pulled back in a ponytail
  • He was last seen wearing what is described as a “furry sleeper”, a diaper and black gloves.

According to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office, Jamie Sheridan, 31 and her young son were last seen late Friday night — but found to be missing from their home early the next morning.

The woman and child live in Castle Valley, according to the sheriff’s office.  Officials are concerned because they believe that Sheridan might be suffering from a mental condition that could endanger the child.

UPDATE I: Grand County officials worried about missing woman, son

“We don’t suspect any kind of foul play,” said Sheriff James D. Nyland. “In the middle of the night, she just up and took off. We don’t know where she has taken off to.”
    A social services employee visited Jaime Sheridan’s Castle Valley home Friday afternoon, which may have scared the mother into thinking the state may be trying to take custody of the boy, Nyland said.
    Sheridan’s father last saw his daughter and grandson about 10 p.m., according to the sheriff’s office. The father awoke about 5:30 a.m. Saturday after noticing the home was cold.
    Sheridan’s father found an open door, but not Sheridan, who suffers from a mental illness, or her son.
    “We found tracks towards the road from the residence,” the sheriff said.
    Authorities don’t know whether Sheridan and the boy caught a ride from a passing motorist or if they went walking into the night in single-digit temperatures. Sheridan doesn’t own a vehicle and left her driver’s license behind.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Grand County Sheriff’s Office at 435-259-8115
