• 14-year-old girl disappears in midtown Atlanta


    ATLANTA - Police are looking for a 14-year-old girl who disappeared in midtown Atlanta.

    Beverly Knepper was last seen Monday after an argument with her parents. She was wearing a white shirt, neon yellow shorts, brown socks and white shoes.

    Channel 2 Action News was with friends and family members as they circulated look-out flyers around midtown Wednesday in the search for the girl.

    "The best they can piece together (is) she went to the park to meet a friend and he didn’t show up, and she hasn't come back," a woman with the group said.

    According to an Atlanta police report, Knepper was set to meet a 14-year-old boy who she met on Instagram at Piedmont Park. Police said they spoke to the boy, and he said he didn’t end up going.

    The girl’s mother told police she had argued with Knepper about the boy, and she last saw her daughter on the steps of their home near the park.

    The mother also said Knepper has Postraumatic stress disorder but wasn’t taking medication.

    Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Atlanta police at 404-614-6544.
