Deputies said 16-year-old Ashlynn Owen was reported as a runaway on Friday, November 15. She was last seen at her home in Williamston. 

There's added concern because she has severe depression and may be suicidal, deputies said. 

Owen is approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall, 120 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. Deputies said Owen could now have bright pink hair, as well as a tattoo on her lower right forearm that reads “Forever”.
