Photos released of teen who never showed at bus station

Hagerstown City Police have released new photos of a 15-year-old girl who was to meet family members at a Hagerstown bus terminal May 8 but never showed up.

Elizabeth Dawn Phillips is described as white, 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 120 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. Police believe she was last seen in Washington, D.C.

When Phillips' parents went to pick her up at the bus depot on Sharpsburg Pike, the girl's luggage arrived but she did not, investigator Patricia Moulton said.

A passenger on a Greyhound bus heading for Hagerstown saw the girl disembark from the bus May 8 with a white man who appeared to be in his early 20s, Moulton said.


"We're alarmed at this. We're very concerned for her well-being," Moulton said.

Moulton said some items, including a Social Security card and a birth certificate, were sent from a Washington address to a relative living near Hagerstown.
