Spokane Police are asking for help locating two Ferris High School students who left a note indicating their plans to run away together earlier this month.

Carolyn Toner, 17, and Adin Haines, 15, have been missing since Sept. 4, according to police. The two teenagers left a note and took survival gear, a first aid kit and a long hunting knife with them, according to a news release. Toner and Haines are both described as about 5‘9” tall and around 125 pounds. Toner has red hair with blue eyes, and Haines has brown hair and brown eyes.

At the time they took off, Toner was wearing a red and white sundress. Haines was clad in a shirt depicting the Star Wars character Yoda, a light gray Army jacket, and Nike pants. He was also wearing a backpack and a camouflage bandana, according to police.

The two are suspected to be camping somewhere in the area, or near Lincoln County, Oregon. Their cellphones have been turned off and police think they have about $180 on hand. Anyone with information as to their whereabouts is asked to call 911.
