"She started seeing a girl that we had living with us that we were trying to help out, giving a place to stay, and she's too old for Wyllow so we kicked her out," Jessica said. "Wyllow was mad because we wouldn't let her see this woman."

Jessica went on to tell 5NEWS the police have questioned the girl that was kicked out of their home but said she informed police she did not know where Wyllow was. Jessica also said Wyllow does not have a cellphone.

Wyllow is described as 5 foot 7, 100 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and black shoes. Police say she may be in the Fort Smith area.
