Cornelius runaway still missing, may be in danger

Washington County Sheriff’s Office personnel are still searching for a girl who ran away from her Cornelius home last Friday. Deputies serving the city of Cornelius are asking for the public’s help to locate Keri Sinner, 17.

She has repeatedly engaged in dangerous, self-destructive behavior when she previously ran away from home. Keri Sinner

Keri is five feet five inches tall, about 125 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black and white jacket and purple and black shoes.

The family reports Sinner has been victimized many times in the past by adult men who exploit Sinner’s vulnerability.

The family also believes Sinner is at a higher risk than usual because she isn’t on her appropriate medication. This disables her ability to understand consequences and has left her susceptible to entering dangerous situations, such as going with anyone she comes in contact with. 

Deputies are seeking the public’s help regarding this case.

Anyone who has information on the girl’s whereabouts is urged to call 503-629-0111.
