A 16-YEAR-OLD GIRL fled her Collingdale house with her 3-year-old sister yesterday morning, right before Delaware County Children and Youth Services workers were slated to take the siblings from their mother's home, police said.
A 15-year-old cousin later joined the two, and police were still searching for all three and asking for the public's help in finding the girls, said Collingdale Police Chief Robert Adams.
Adams said police had been in contact with the girls via cellphone, but the girls refused to provide their location. Their most recent call sounded like it was made from a transportation terminal on speakerphone, police said. Both Amtrak and SEPTA police were notified to keep a look out for the runaways.
