MISSING - Lauren Blackmon - St.Johnsbury, VT
Vermont State Police: St. Johnsbury, VT – 4/17/14 – The search continues for runaway Lauren Blackmon, now age 17. During the early morning hours of October 9, 2012, Blackmon, ran away from her residence on Moose River Drive in St. Johnsbury. 

Blackmon, who was living with a friend’s family, was facing relocation out of state and, it is believed, she intentionally ran away to avoid the move. Within a month of running away, there were reported sightings of Blackmon in the St. Johnsbury area; however since these initial reports, no further sightings have been made to authorities. 

The case remains open and active with the Vermont State Police. Follow-up interviews with family, friends, and associates of Blackmon have not revealed any new contact between Blackmon and these individuals. And while Blackmon will turn 18 in October 2014, the Vermont State Police remain concerned as there is no indication she is prepared to provide for herself; and officials would like to confirm her welfare.

At the time Blackmon ran away, she was approximately 5’7” tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds, with hazel eyes, and blonde hair.

Anyone with information regarding Blackmon, please contact Detective Sergeant David Petersen of VSP-St. Johnsbury at 802-748-3111, or the Northeast Kingdom Crime Stoppers at 802-748-2222, or submit an anonymous tip to
