WILKES-BARRE – Rosalind Franklin has been canvassing the South Wilkes-Barre neighborhood where her 14-year-old daughter, Briyanna Miles, was last seen two weeks ago.
Franklin said she was told the girl has been abused by a few men, who she claims are moving her daughter around to different houses.
"We don't know where she is," Franklin said Tuesday, two weeks to the day when her daughter fled her Spring Street home after an argument with her father, Lovelle Young, about cleaning her bedroom on Aug. 21. "We as a family are grieving and want to know where she is."
Franklin has posted flyers in Wilkes-Barre, Kingston and Edwardsville about Miles' disappearance.
Franklin reported her daughter missing to Wilkes-Barre police but feels law enforcement is not doing its best to find her. She said police did search a house in the 100 block of Sambourne Street and learned her daughter had stayed there after she left her residence.
"We've been out looking for her until 3:30 in the morning on some nights," Franklin said. "We've been told she was at the Sambourne Street house and at a house on South Franklin Street."
Franklin said she was also told Miles was seen getting into a gray Infiniti outside a store in Edwardsville in recent days.
Miles does not use Facebook or Twitter and had her cellphone taken from her, Franklin said.
Franklin said police have Miles' cellphone.
Franklin is hosting a march to raise awareness to find Miles this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. at Kirby Park and proceeding to Public Square.
Police did not release information about their search for Miles, who left her home wearing a white tank top, black and white stone wash jeans, and black flat shoes.
Anyone with information about Miles is asked to call Wilkes-Barre police at 826-8106 or 911.
