15 Year Old Lorien King & 16 Year Old Hunter Pike Missing Since 5/23/14 in Bellingham, Washington … Runaway
Two Whatcom County girls, 15 year old Lorien King and 16 year old Hunter Pike has been missing since Friday, May 23, 2014 in Bellingham, Washington. The two teens have apparently ran away; however, it is not known why. It is believed they may be taking public transportation toward California. Bellingham Police spokesman Lt. Bob Vander Yacht said that Pike and King may be using the aliases Jordan Hawood and Skylar Davenport. Obviously they must have received such information from a friend that the girls told of their plans.

The two Whatcom County girls, Hunter Pike, 16, and Lorien King, 15, were believed to possibly be heading toward California using public transportation, Bellingham Police spokesman Lt. Bob Vander Yacht said.
The teens made comments early Friday that made their friends concerned for their well-being, Vander Yacht said, and “then they were gone.”
Around 8 p.m. Friday, shortly after family members reported the girls missing, the department posted their pictures on Twitter.
“We’d like to get them back to their family,” Vander Yacht said. “Use of social media is one of the best ways we can do that.”
Police were initially concerned about the teens’ welfare, but after a series of tips came in from people who had seen their photos on social media, it appeared they were OK, Vander Yacht said.
It was not clear why the two were running away, Vander Yacht said.
