Amy Ellis, 17 


Law enforcement agencies in Coweta and Carroll County are on the look out for a 17-year-old Newnan girl who was last seen on March 6.

Amy Ellis, who lives on Happy Valley Circle and attends Newnan High School, was reported missing by her father on March 9, according to officials. Starting Feb. 27, Ellis began staying at a residence on the 100-block of Holly Drive in Carrollton with her father’s permission because the woman who lived there, known as Melissa, was supposed to be tutoring Ellis in math and driving her to and from school.

According to the sheriff’s office, Ellis’ father discovered Ellis had not been attending school, and he sent her a text message saying he would file a missing person report if she did not come home. Ellis’ father received a response saying Melissa would bring Ellis home on March 7 — that was the last time the father heard from her. Ellis did not come home, and her father filed the missing person report two days later.

Sgt. Mike Lavore with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office checked on the Holly Drive address and was told by the residents that Ellis left on March 6, according to the report. Ellis was last seen leaving in a red truck, possibly a Ford Ranger, with a man who might be named Rob, and Ellis said she was going to Alabama and would not return until she was 18, the residents told Lavore.

Ellis is described as 4 feet , 10 inches tall, weighs around 95 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes. Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Ellis have been asked to contact the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office at 770-253-1502.
