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.

      Hopefully LE will find them safe. This is a prime way that young girls get taken in and introduced to prostitution.

      Lorien told me and a bunch of other people her plan. When asked about destination, she said, “Not California. That’s too cliche. We were thinking about Oregon.” I also know the two have been saving up money, Lorien was carrying approximately $500 and Hunter about $50. Likewise, the two have been in a relationship since about three weeks before they ran away, although this plan was made many months before their relationship. I also know about a month ago the two attempted suicide by overdose together but apparently backed out after taking a mixture of sleeping pills, Ritalin, and antidepressants. They were last seen at a Target in Woodinville, and are (to my best knowledge) headed towards Seaside, Oregon. They were not discreet with their plans. Lorien stole pills from a friend of hers plotting to take his own life and sold it for anywhere between $60-$90 to pay for her and Hunter’s escape.
      This is all I know, and all of it being told to me from the girls themselves prior to them running away.
