CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Authorities need help finding a teen couple who vanished early Monday morning, Clayton officials say.

The pair disappeared from the respective homes and parents reported them missing around 3 a.m., said Stacy Beard, a spokeswoman with Clayton.

Christen Elizabeth Lovell, 14, and Cody Lee Jolly-Bradford, 16, are in a relationship, Beard said in a news release.

“Lovell’s family realized she was not at home and then immediately called Jolly-Bradford’s home where his family confirmed their son was not home either,” Beard said.

Jolly-Bradford is 5 feet 10 inches tall and 205 pounds, with short blond hair. His family is not sure what he was wearing, Beard said.
