Lawrence County teen missing for over a week

A 16-year-old Lawrence County girl has been missing for over a week and the family is pleading for the public's help in finding her.
Kennedy Rae Howell disappeared from her family home on August 6th and hasn't been seen or heard from since. Kennedy was last seen wearing a tank top, black and white shorts, and a pair of Tommy Hilfiger flip-flops, and her glasses.

Family members say her behavior the night of her disappearance didn't indicate she was planning to go anywhere, however the family suspects she may be traveling with a 17-year-old boy named Dylan Richardson.

The family says Kennedy didn't take any clothes, medicine, or even her phone. Kennedy Howell's aunt, Shea Howell says the family has had several disturbing incidents with Dylan Richardson leading them to fear for Kennedy's safety.

Richardson is from Florence, MS, and may be in that area driving a 2000 model gold Buick LeSabre with a Rankin County Plate bearing the numbers RBC-456.
