HOLMES COUNTY, Fla. (WDHN) — For the third time in around a month, teenagers Elanie Marie Alday, 16, and Alex C. Baker, 15, have gone missing.

The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office said they are once again searching for the two youths, but this time, they’re looking to serve arrest warrants for grand theft once they find them.

A family member told authorities the two stole a truck over the weekend. They also said a pistol was taken, but Alex later told them where he left the 9mm handgun.

The pair are said to be heading to Louisiana in “a blue, four-door 2003 Dodge Ram with a dent in the front driver’s side bumper, some tailgate damage, and … a toolbox and generator in the truck bed.”

Elanie and Alex now face the felony charges of grand theft of a vehicle and grand theft of a firearm.

Elanie is originally from Ponce de Leon, having lived around Line Road. She is described as having dark brown shoulder-length hair and blue eyes, standing around five feet seven inches tall, weighing around 100 and 105 pounds, and “was last seen wearing pajamas.”

Alex lives around Circle North Lane in Westville. He is described as having brown hair and brown eye, standing around five feet nine inches tall, weighing around 180 pounds, and “was last seen wearing a turquoise American Eagle shirt, a pair of jeans with a hole in the right knee, and green boots.”

Both teens are described as being white.

The sheriff’s office asks that those with information on Alex and Elanie’s location to call them 850-547-3681, option 1. The sheriff’s office has mentioned before that aiding in hiding the teens is also a crime in of itself.
