SUPERIOR - The search for missing Wisconsin teens, Josey Scoville, 17, and Larissa Aunet, 17, has taken authorities from Belleville, Wisconsin where the two are from to the capital of "The Golden State."
"We received information two days ago that some of their personal belongings were found under a car port in Sacramento, California," said James Mankowski, police officer with the Belleville Police Department.
There appear to be no further sign of the girls.
"We're just surprised that it's been two weeks with no word and very out of character for my niece," said Lisa Persons, aunt of Larissa Aunet.
Persons lives in Superior like many of Aunet's family members.
It's a spot where she spent a lot of time growing up.
"She comes up here and spends time at the lake. She's done that her whole life, sometimes she'd spend a week or two in the summer," said Persons.
The two girls were cited for speeding in Illinois and Nebraska, but despite law enforcement apparently not knowing an alert had been sent out, they did not stop the girls.
"I don't know why the police didn't hang onto them," said Mankowski.
Family still does not know why the girls took off or where they may have been heading, but police still don't believe foul play is suspected.
Mankowski said, "It is very odd, but I guess one thing to consider is in Wisconsin there's a different climate than California and perhaps they just wanted to dispose of those types of clothes."
Police say they've sent out flyers, put out notice for the vehicle and contacted as many law enforcement personnel as possible.
Everyone is hoping the girls come home safe and sound.
"At this point, what we need to do is spread awareness. If anybody sees them or if anybody comes across them contact the Belleville Police Department," said Mankowski.
Persons said, "We want her home. She needs to come home."
The teens were last seen in a 1998 SAAB with Wisconsin license plates 911-TYG.
If you know anything about where these two girls might be you are urged to call your local police.
