16-year-old girl disappears after texting friends that someone is ‘following her’ and she never makes it to first day of school.

Marley McKenna Spindler vanished after eating breakfast at Chick-fil-A with friends in Myrtle Beach on August 20 at 7.30am, while her car was seen on security cameras shortly afterwards. South Carolina police are hunting for a 16-year-old high schooler who vanished Thursday on her way to her first day of junior year, her matching lunchbox and backpack in tow.

Afterwards she told them that she was off to pick up ‘Jeremy’, a 22-year-old she met a few weeks earlier on the beach, to drive him to his home in Georgetown County 30 miles away.The teen was also seen teen driving on Ocean Boulevard and stopping by her bank, where she withdrew a small amount of money from her account, less than $100, said Lieutenant Raul Denis of the Horry County Police Department, according to NBC News. Police from Horry County say evidence on Spindler’s cell phone, found in the parking lot of a nearby hotel, suggests she was not coerced into leaving and was likely alone at the time. Police said Marley was last heard from at 8.42am that morning, when she sent a group text to her friends saying someone was following her – but they wrote it off as a joke.

The missing teen was last seen wearing long blue jeans, a white flowery tank top and gold sandals, with a cross-body style purser, a carrying a Vera Bradley book bag and Vera Bradley lunchbox, according to a missing person’s flyer. However, yesterday it was claimed that Spindler has spoken to friends in a group chat message to say she thought she was being followed at 8.42am according to WBTW.

After breakfast, the teen — who got her driver’s license just two weeks before she vanished — drove her 2002 Ford Escape to a local bank, surveillance video showed.
