Missing girls after a casual sleepover this weekend are now being actively sought out in the Riverside, California area. However, local authorities do not believe the 14-year-old girl and her 12-year-old female companion were abducted or the victims of some other crime; police believe that the friends in fact ran away together. Yahoo! News shares this Monday, Jan. 27, 2014, that a huge search continues to be conducted for the pre-teens, with the investigation including a number of friends and family members, task forces, and dogs that specialize in tracking.

Both girls went missing after a late night sleepover in local Riverside this Saturday, continues the authorities’ report. Witnesses claimed to have seen 14-year-old Diana Tourdot and 12-year-old Raylynn Bolt together by a city plaza this Sunday afternoon.

"The girls are still missing but at this point in the investigation, it is believed the girls ran away from home," noted a law enforcement officer.

Although the authorities are currently using a team of bloodhounds in their attempt to find the girls, they think that it will be very difficult to locate the potential runaways if they actively don’t want to be found. Both female friends were said to have suddenly vanished on Saturday from Diana’s home while spending the night in each other’s company.

The reason as to why the 14-year-old and 12-year-old in this missing girls sleepover case might have run away has not yet been determined by police. Initial opinions seem to suggest that the friends might have gotten into some sort of trouble, and felt that fleeing from the situation was their only option.

"Unfortunately I think these two girls just got into a little bit of trouble," Donald Bolt, Raylynn' father, told a local media source. "Hopefully this huge search will find them."

“The girls were spending the night at Diana's home. Her mother said she fell asleep around 11 p.m., heard a noise around midnight and woke up at 6:30 a.m., when the girls were gone, Donald Bolt said.”

Bolt is releasing a public announcement in the hopes that the missing girls might hear of the news and realize that they can come home. Regardless of the consequences, he is pleading with the friends after their seemingly innocent sleepover to feel safe in returning home.

"You guys can come home," he said. "I mean, you know, if you guys maybe ran away or something or went to some guy's house, everything's fine. We've all done it. We've all been 12, 13, 14."
