BILLINGS (AP) — Montana authorities have confirmed a search is underway for a 16-year-old girl who went missing after last being seen near a highway.
Selina Shelley Faye Not Afraid was last seen Wednesday at a rest area near the Fly Creek Exit off of Interstate 90, Billings Gazette reported Thursday.
Not Afraid was part of a group of six people driving from Billings to Hardin when the car broke down and restarted, Bighorn County Sheriff's officials said.
Four people left the rest stop in the vehicle and the driver called a relative to pick up Not Afraid and another girl who were left behind, authorities said.
Only one girl was at the rest stop when the relative arrived and Not Afraid had walked off into a nearby field not dressed for weather conditions, authorities said.
Low temperatures in Hardin reached 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) Wednesday, weather officials said.
Not Afraid has black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a black coat, gray sweater, blue jeans and gray ankle boots, authorities said.
Anyone with information is asked to call law enforcement.
