Manatee County deputies search for runaway teen girl

Bradenton, FL - Deputies are looking for 16-year-old Jessica Nichole Johnes, who likely ran away and may be in the company of 22-year-old Efren Pacheco.

Jessica's parents last saw her when they left for work at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. When they returned home to the 3000 block of 75th Ter. E., she was gone. Jessica was scheduled to have an appointment with her therapist at 4:30 p.m.

A note found on Jessica's bedroom floor stated that she was going to Texas to start a new life, but did not mention that she would be traveling with anyone, or how she would be traveling. The neighborhood was canvassed to no avail. The Greyhound bus station was also checked in an attempt to locate Jessica. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence, and no signs of a struggle.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jessica Johnes or Efren Pacheco should contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office at 747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
