Authorities are looking for a missing teen who was last seen on July 22 in Wayne County (Goldsboro, NC). Ashanti D. Harper is 15 years old.  According to WNCT, “Ashanti was last seen by younger cousins at the residence. Authorities said that Ashanti left her aunt’s house in Goldsboro through a bedroom window.”

Ashanti was staying with her aunt for summer break and when she left the house she took some personal items and clothes in a bag. She does not have a working phone. However, her phone will transmit through wi-fi. The family believes Ashanti was communicating with a tall skinny black male with several tattoos who claims to be 17 years old.

The family of Ashanti has not heard from her since July 22 and her social media accounts have been closed. Ashanti is approximately 4’10 in height and 110lbs and she was last seen wearing a pink coat and dark pants.
