Police Search For Two Teens

Police are looking for two Knott County teens that have been missing now for one week.

State police say 14-year-old Bradley James Pennington left from his bedroom window in Mallie on January 20th, the same day 15-year-old Kaita Nicole Addington went missing from her home in Pine Top.

Police say the teens families have not heard from them.

“Weather conditions are getting worse by the minute here tonight and have been for the last couple of days and we've got real concerns. Are they safe? Are they where it is warm, do they have food to eat?” Trooper Tony Watts said.

Police say the two teens know each other and are believed to be together.

    Who is Alisha and what part of Florida? Maybe this should be broadcasted all over the united states. Maybe the families could go on television and talk.

    I think this is extremely sad. I'm a resident of Knott County and didn't hear about these kids missing until January 24th and they went missing on the 20th. I've not seen nothing on the news even though I get Lexington stations it still should be shown on that. I really hope i'm wrong by saying this but it seems as if they don't won't to find them. Local rescue squads hasn't or wasn't called in the first place to check hills, Like I stated earlier not on the news, This is horrible. Why isn't more being done to help the families find their children? In my eyes not enough is being done to find these children. These two kids and their families are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope they have a safe return home.

    I have heard a lot of things. I have heard that they was in West Virginia, then I also heard that they was in Virginia, I have also heard that they was going to Nevada to get married, even California so they can get as far away from Kentucky as they can, so please stop with all the lies..if you don't really know then don't say that you do. The Florida one is new on me. I haven't heard that one yet. but, I say give it a few more days and that one will also go around Knott Central but Bradley or Kaita if u r reading this we all miss you. just come home. or at least call and let someone know that you r ok..please..just b careful where ever you are.

    Someone told me that they went to Flordia and are staying in Alisha's home she has there. I am her aunt and I miss her dearly. She does have a Myspace, but she hasn't been on in awhile. Kaita, if you are reading this, I just want you to know that we all miss you very much. We all love you more than anything and hope you are okay. Please just come back. It just isn't the same without you. I miss you. The whole family misses you. You will be in our thoughts and prayers<3

    this is horrible.and I mean I know both of them really well,and they were always together.If they want to be together then why wouldnt the parents just accept that?I just pray that they are okay.Everyone is talking about how they might be dead,because of the bad weather and stuff like that.I just wish one of them would call their parents and at least let everyone know that they are ok.Bradley and Kaita,please come home.we all love and miss you!

    Why aren't they looking at this site for. you all have give out a lot of possibilities of how to find them and where they might be. I don't know them personally but I've seen them around school. I am really concerned about why they haven't sent out an amber alert. Why would they run away. They just don't seem like the type, they may look it, but not act like it. People are really worried about them. I have prayed several times everyday for their safe return. And what's up with that police believe they are together? DUh! They're dating you never see one with out the other. And i agree why hasn't anyone checked their myspace/facebook pages? They should be doing more to ensure they return. I'm praying all the time for them and their families. And if anyone of you guys are reading this, people love and miss you, and are really worried about you! Come home for them.
