CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - Authorities are looking for a teen girl who they say ran away from her home last week.
The girl, 16, was last seen in Concord on Sunday after running away on Friday, Cabarrus County Sheriff's detectives said.
"She was last seen on Highland Avenue in Concord on Sunday, January 23 and may be in the area of Sunderland Road traveling on foot," said Brian A. Schmitt, a detective with the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office.
The girl's name is Amanda Lynn Saugrich and she lives on Blackwelder Road in Concord, detectives said.
She is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 140 pounds and has a tattoo on her right foot that has 3 stars. Her hair is now darker than pictured in the DMV photo, according to her father, Schmitt said.

I recently took a trip up north went through Statesville in NC got off exit in Statesville I went down a highway called Hickory Highway/70 to Catawba County. I didn't think at that second of little Zarah Baker but after I got gas. I was heading back to I-77 something was not right in this town. Than I realize where I was actually was and what occured in Hickory NC.I got that same feeling that I had when I searched for little Caylee Marie Anthony. I felt so sick to my stomach I had to pull my vechile over and just take a few deep breaths. And pay my respect to little Zahra Baker, the morbid torture that this little precious girl went through. Heart wrenching is somehow to explain it what I was feeling. I will be working on the whole story this week and Posting some Pictures of the trip.
