Have you seen these two missing juveniles? 15-year-old Kylie McLaughlin was last seen at her residence on Halloween. Her mother reported her missing after she failed to return home in time for school and was reportedly in Cullman County with a woman named April Gray. Kylie's 16-year-old brother, Koren McLaughlin, was last seen November 5 when he got on the bus and went to school at Tanner High School. The childrens' mother reported that Koren did not return home from school that day. She received information that Koren was with his sister. Ms. McLaughlin has since been contacted by friends and informed that her children may be attempting to go to a friend’s house in Flat Rock (near Mobile).
