St. Peters Police are looking for a missing 16-year-old St. Charles girl.
The girl, Molly Linhardt, is considered by police to be an endangered missing juvenile. She is described as 5-foot-3 and 110 pounds with blue eyes and blond hair.
According to St. Peters Police, Linhardt was reported missing around 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 14 by her parents. Linhardt's father dropped her off for work at Kentucky Fried Chicken, however he later found out she was not scheduled to work.
The family spoke to several people and found out that Linhardt had left the KFC in St. Peters located at 1699 Jungermann Road. Linhardt was last seen in her KFC uniform—black pants, black shoes, black shirt and black hat.
Police believe Linhardt is with another adult male, identified as 27-year-old Benjamin Kinkade. The Wright City, Mo., resident drives a 2006 silver Chevy Colorado with the Missouri license plate of 7PT914.
Attempts to contact Kinkade have been unsuccessful and Linhardt does not have her cell phone. St. Peters Police consider Linhardt as an endangered missing juvenile and are asking anyone with information about her whereabouts call St. Peters Police Department at 636-278-2222.
Update: 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013
The St. Peters Police Department said they believe Linhardt left voluntarily with Kinkade and do not believe this is a child abduction. Police are still in need of the public’s help because they have received minimal phone calls about this case and need as many leads as they can get at this time.
