LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Authorities in Laurel County are asking for the public’s help in locating three children reported missing in recent days, and police now say at least two of the cases might be connected.

Officials are looking for 12-year-old Lindsey Couch, who last was seen just before 1 a.m. Saturday along Kentucky Highway 1223, about eight miles south of London.

Police also are seeking 17-year-old Dalton Robinson, who last was seen just after midnight Saturday on Bill Karr Road, about seven miles south of London.

And authorities also are trying to locate 15-year-old Mark Fields, who last was seen about 6 p.m. Friday along Magee Road, about five miles south of London.

Police initially said the cases did not appear to be related. However, Laurel County Deputy Gilbert Acciardo said Sunday afternoon that police now have reason to believe the Couch and Robinson cases may be related.

“Dalton Robinson and Lindsey Couch may have runaway together,” said Acciardo. “We are checking to see if there is a connection.”

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department asks anyone with information about the cases to call 606-864-6600 or 606-878-7000.
