The search for two missing Alabama teens continued Wednesday.

Jason Price, 18, of Clanton, and his girlfriend Candice Ashley, 15, of Autauga County, were last seen between the hours of midnight and 1 a.m. July 1 at their respective homes.

Price was last known to be driving a gold, four-door 2002 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup with the license plate No. 1455S5.

Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis said his department was actively searching for the two, and that Price could face charges.

“We have a warrant for unauthorized use of a vehicle,” he said. “We’re doing some following up on leads.”

Captain Jim Steele of the Autauga County Sheriff’s Department said they were exploring all possibilities as to where the two teens might be.

“We are working a missing child’s case,” he said. “And we are diligently working this case; it’s an open investigation. We’ve put national and regional bulletin that she is missing.”

Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of the two is encouraged to call either the Autauga County Sheriff’s Office at (334)-361-2500 or the Chilton County Sheriff’s Office at (205)-755-1120.

    If they really run off together we just hope that these teens will care to communicate their families. I’m sure they are aware now that police is searching for them and to save from all this pain hope they will show up. We all got mistakes, just forgive and forget and start a new life in order to have a peaceful and happily living.

    Clearly there is more going on in these teens lives than an article in a newspaper can cover. I, too, think that they have most likely run off together. Find one of’em and you probably going to find the other one. And WOW! the age thing probably has all kinds of ramifications. Running from any problem ain’t going to solve that problem. These kids are young and for the most part, can not see the heartaches and misry they are causing others. Ya’ll come home and whatever the problem is … it can be worked out. It will also be a lesson in integrity. It will instill in you that running from a problem is not the solution! It is okay to make a mistake … it IS NOT okay to not fix it! I know very well that it is easier said than done, but ya’ll may as well start out now learning to face the music. It will help create the beautiful and wonderful people ya’ll were born to be.

    I hope they find these kids, it sounds like they might have run off together. With the boy being 18 and the girl 15 doesn’t that bring in more problems?

    I’m sure their parents are worried sick. As a mother myself I know the horror of not knowing where your child is thanks to a stupid stunt my son played when he was a child.

    Good luck to the Price and Ashley families.
