Police in North Carolina say that the FBI is now involved in the search for a missing teenager from Hope Mills who has ties to Myrtle Beach.

Danielle's grandfather said Locklear left his residence to go to a friend's house, but that when he went to pick her up, she had never arrived.

Police said Locklear may have been at the creek that runs between Legion Road and Cameron Road.

The area that she was last known to be in was searched by Police K-9. 

Some of her clothes were found there two days later but further investigation turned up nothing.

According to Locklear's Facebook page, she also lived in Myrtle Beach, SC. 

Police described Locklear as bi-racial, has black hair, green eyes. She stands 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs around 150 pounds.
