ST. GEORGE — Layton police and Utah Child and Family Services are asking for the public’s help in locating two teenage girls that went missing on July 1 and were last known to be in the Layton area.
The two girls went missing from a private foster home, New Beginnings, in Layton on July 1 and have not been seen since, Layton Police Sgt. Clint Bobrowski said. They are known to have relatives or contacts in the Salt Lake City and West Valley City area.
The girls are 13-year-old McKenzey Madill and 15-year-old Alice Mpawenimana.
