    IL - Bridget Phillippi, 17, Greenup, 19 July 2017

    Bridget Phillippi, 17, of Greenup, Illinois went missing the morning of Wednesday, July 19th.

    It is believed that she was picked up by Liam Ledford, 22, of Nixa, Missouri.

    Bridget’s phone has been off since Wednesday morning, and Liam no longer has his phone with him.

    They are believed to have been traveling in a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero, Red, 2 door car.
    They were headed east from Greenup, Il early Wednesday morning, but we have had no definitive proof of their location since that time.

    IL - Bridget Phillippi, 17, Greenup, 19 July 2017

    Here is Liam's Facebook page

    Judging from his families posts they seem just as worried about both of them.

    Phillippi’s mother, Tammy Carl, added that Philippi was supposed to be at her father’s home in Windsor on Wednesday at 8 a.m. When she didn’t arrive, Phillippi’s stepmother called Carl’s residence in Greenup and spoke to Phillippi’s sister, who explained that Phillippi was not home – though her car was.


    Phillippi ran away three years ago, according to Carl, and was gone about 12 hours. However, Carl said that her latest disappearance is not similar to her last.

    “Looking back, we feel that maybe there were signs leading up to her running away,” said Carl. “But this time, there haven’t been any signs. She was going to get a new car Wednesday with her dad.”

    Carl said that Phillippi’s phone is also gone, though an Ipod that is synced with the phone had text messages from 5:15 a.m. Wednesday morning between Phillippi and a man identified by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s department as a Liam Ledford, who is believed to be 23- or 24-years-old and from Nixa, Missouri.

    “The message from him said ‘I’m going by the big cross and I’m 34 minutes away’,” Carl said of the message from 5:15 a.m. Wednesday.

    Carl added that Phillippi’s cellphone was last pinged in Vandalia at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

    Since then, Carl and family members have been to Nixa in search of Phillippi without success.


    Maroon says that his office is working with the Springfield and Nixa police departments in Missouri. Alleged sightings of Phillippi have been reported in Illinois and Missouri, though Maroon said his department does not have an idea of her whereabouts.

    Phillippi is believed to be traveling in a 2004 red two-door Oldsmobile Alero.

    So it sounds like she did willingly go with Liam. Does he have a record or any reason we should believe Bridget is in danger?

    I would be too. In SC, he would be arrest for all kinds of things, because she is 17.

    Hi Henry~
    I beg to differ with respect, in the state of South Carolina the age of consent is 16 and there is no age limit on the partner.
    The legal age of consent in South Carolina is 16. However, individuals as young as 14 years old are able to consent to have sex with a partner who is 18 years old or younger.

    Unfortunately & sadly, I have a very close experience with this.

    Looks like Illinois age of consent is 17.

    I believe it is very important for parents to be thoroughly informed of their states consent laws. It might surprise you that adults can prey on and get away with corrupting our teenagers.
    My experience was a close friends/family situation with 2 sixteen year old girls and a 35 year old man whom was their supervisor in a restaurant job. The girls believe they participated willingly and refused to accept their victimization which occurred over a period of time. The parents worked diligently to prosecute but failed and he got off clear. The parents have since gone on to try and get the laws changed with no success.
    Parents know your states laws for your child's safety.

    Thanks for letting me know. We have a friend who 10 years ago or so was early 20s and dating a 17 year old...but he didn't know. She told him she was older. Dad filed charges and he spent some time in jail.

    Same law here. 16 is age of consent, with no maximum age of partner. I shudder when I think of how many girls in my wider circle of friends at 16 and 17 were in relationships with men well into their 20s - completely legal but the men were all taking advantage of that power differential, even if they didn't realise. And at 16 you think you're so mature and know it all. UGH. I don't have a problem with 16 year olds having consensual sex with a boy 16 or 17 but 18+ should be HANDS OFF.

    Media reporting her found.

    Cumberland County authorities confirmed Bridget Phillipi is alive and doing well, physically. Police in Webb County, Texas found Phillipi and Liam Ledford, a man in his 20s in the area, settled right along the border with Mexico, some time early Tuesday morning.
