Authorities in South Carolina are desperately searching for a 15-year-old girl who went missing on Wednesday morning.

According to police, Taylor Bowman was last seen walking to Easley High School, but never actually showed up to her first class.

What has really struck police as chilling is that Taylor’s backpack and stuffed bunny were found around the Saluda River in Greenville County shortly after she disappeared.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there is no evidence that Taylor is in river, according to The Daily Mail.

Although a code red was sent out to all the homes within a five-mile radius of where Taylor went missing, foul play is not suspected in the teen’s disappearance at this time.

While police have already received several tips from people who claim to have seen Taylor in the area, they have not been able to track her down yet.

“I reported to police at noon that I saw Taylor walking at least 2 miles past the Dam/Bridge area this morning around 7:30-45am at the intersect of Georgetown Way and Saluda Dam Rd. She was heading further into Easley well away from the search area,” a woman named Dallas Sturgell wrote on the WSPA Facebook page.

“We’ve invested all assets in this 15-year-old because it’s imperative she’s found,” said Sheriff Will Lewis.
Taylor is described as being about 5 feet, 5 inches tall and she weighs around 110 pounds. She has very long dark hair.
