    NY - Destani Williams (dec'd), 17, & Morgan Eppinger (safe), 16, Auburn, 15 May 2017

    Morgan Eppinger, 16, ran away from Cayuga Centers at 101 Hamilton St. in Auburn on May 15, police said. She was still missing as of Monday.

    Another teenager, 17-year-old Destani Williams, ran away from the Cayuga Centers facility that same day. Williams is also still missing, and the Auburn Police are investigating her disappearance.

    Officials don't think Eppinger has any family or other contacts in the Auburn area, so she may be headed to Fredonia or Dunkirk in Chautauqua County or to Rochester in Monroe County.

    She could also be headed much farther to North Carolina.

    Eppinger is described as 5-feet, 3-inches tall and weighs about 115 lbs. She's white with blue eyes and red hair, according to law enforcement.

    Googled the center. It appears to be a place to help all kinds of people with a wide variety of problems. Mostly, kids! Says it started out as a place for foster children.

    Destani Williams is deceased, Morgan Eppinger is still missing:

    Auburn Police say Destani Williams, 17, was reported missing from Cayuga Centers on May 15. On May 19, the body of an unresponsive female was brought to Brook's Hospital in Dunkirk, located in Chautauqua County. The following morning, she had died. The body was confirmed to be that of Destani Williams.

    Auburn Police say another Cayuga Centers runaway, 16-year-old Morgan Eppinger, was reportedly in the area where Williams' was found. Police believe the two may have left Cayuga Centers together. "Due to the sudden unexpected death of Destani, and the limited information surrounding her death, there is a heightened sense of urgency to locate Morgan Eppinger and ensure that she is safe," Auburn Police said in a release.

    In February, police asked for the public’s help in finding 17-year-old Destani Williams.

    Auburn Police indicated that she had been located in Monroe County in April.

    However, on May 15, both Williams and another teenager, Morgan Eppinger, disappeared from the facility.

    On Saturday, May 20, they were told that Williams had brought to a hospital in Dunkirk, N.Y.

    Police initially thought both Williams and Eppinger were separate cases.

    Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler says they are working with Dunkirk Police, who also believe the teens were together.

    But Eppinger’s cell phone located her near Williams in Dunkirk.

    Auburn Police are particularly concerned about Eppinger in the wake of Williams' death.

    This is really concerning.

    Police say they have a "heightened sense of urgency" in finding Morgan Eppinger.

    Dunkirk police are asking that the people or person who dropped Williams off at the hospital contact them at 716-366-2266.

    Her death makes it all the more important to find Eppinger.

    At first police didn't think the two girls were traveling together.

    Police have credible leads that Eppinger may be in the Dunkirk area, Schafer said. She may also be headed to the Village of Fredonia or Rochester.

    A teen who ran away from Cayuga Centers has been located in western New York, according to the Auburn Police Department.

    Morgan Eppinger, 16, was located by the Dunkirk Police Department Wednesday. She had been missing since leaving Cayuga Centers May 15.

    No other details were provided by authorities.


    Hopefully this means located safe but it doesn't say.
