Authorities in four states are searching for a local teen they believe may be in danger.

At approximately noon today (Friday), 17-year-old Jessee Hemphill left her North Miami home with a man she allegedly met on an Internet chat line. According to family members, the girl left under the pretense that the man was taking her to Joplin to a photo shoot.

Hemphill is described as 5-feet, 5-inchs tall and weighing approximately 130 pounds. She has blond hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing a blue tank top and bluejeans.

The subject she left her home with was described as a white male in his 20ís. He was driving a white extended-cab pickup.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Miami Police Department at 542-5585.
