GREENE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Greene County Sheriff's Department is seeking the public's help in locating two runaway teens. 

Two juvenile girls ran away from their homes on Saturday night, according to Chief Deputy Brad Warrick. 

Claudia Landrum, 16, and Kaelyn Smith, 17, were possibly traveling together in a dark colored Chevrolet with two six-inch LED lights below the bumper, according to Warrick. 

On Monday night the two juveniles were spotted at Fellowship Freewill Baptist Church at the intersection of Union Road and Brewertown Road in Greene County, according to Warrick. Mississippi Department of Corrections and South Mississippi Correctional Institution's K9 unit tracked the girls to Brewertown Road before losing their tracks due to the rain. 

The girls' last location is believed to be heading north beside Brewertown Road, according to Warrick. 

Landrum is from Washington Co., AL and Smith is from Greene County, MS. 

No foul play is suspected, according to Warrick. 

The Greene County Sheriff's Department encourages anyone that sees them or has any information regarding their whereabouts to immediately call the Greene County Sheriff's Office at 601-394-2341 or 911.
