Missing girl, 17, feared in trouble

West Whiteland Township Police are seeking the public’s help to locate a missing 17-year-old girl.

Police said Brittany Stanley was last seen on Feb. 20 and is believed to be in Philadelphia, where she may be using the name “Lily.”  Detectives said they were able to track a couple of phone calls she made to a crime-ridden area of North Philadelphia. They said trauma she suffered as a child “may make her vulnerable to poor judgement.” They said the teen’s mother is extremely concerned that the girl may be living on the street and engaging in dangerous behavior.

The teen, who recently moved to West Whiteland Township from the Bethlehem area, is described as 5-foot-2, about 180 pounds, with brown eyes, short brown hair and a black tattoo of cherries on her left arm. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the West Whiteland Township Police Department at 610-363-0200 or 610-692-5100.
