ORIGINAL STORY:

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee and the FBI are asking people to be on the lookout for a missing 14-year-old girl.

Authorities said Savannah Leigh Pruitt was last seen on Jan. 13 at her home in Madisonville, Tennessee just outside Knoxville.

Kevin Rowson, a spokesperson for the FBI field office in Atlanta, said Pruitt used to live in Lawrenceville.

"The girl lived in Lawrenceville, Ga. for many years before moving to Knoxville four weeks before she disappeared. So she has many contacts here from school friends, etc.," Rowson said.

The morning of her disappearance, investigators say her cell phone pinged in Kentucky, about 140 miles from home.

Pruitt is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has blonde hair and blue eyes. There is no clothing description. 

If you have seen Pruitt, you can call the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at 423-442-3911 or the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).
