An organization out of Virginia is sounding the alarm about a reportedly missing Richmond teen after a post started circulating on Facebook.

According to a post by the AWARE Foundation, which is a registered 501(c)(3), Trinity Sallee was last seen on Friday July 5 around 11:30 p.m.

Sallee, 18, was reportedly riding her bike home from work at Rally's and was wearing her uniform at that time, but never made it home.

The AWARE foundation said that Sallee's mother received a text around 9 a.m. on Saturday stating that she had already left the state and had received a ride from a friend.

Sallee's cell phone pinged in the Memphis, Tennessee area, and then later in Texas, according to the AWARE Foundation's post.

Reportedly her family was worried because they had recently moved to the area and Sallee didn't have many friends. Her family also said the text messages didn't sound like her.

The family told the AWARE Foundation that Sallee did not have a history of running away.

The Richmond Police Department had not confirmed or released any information in regards to Sallee and LEX 18 reporter Jacqueline Nie reached out to the police chief on Saturday evening and had not heard back.

A Facebook post by Dakota Sallee asking for help locating his sister has been shared more than 1500 times.
