Quilcene girl, 16, missing after leaving note, sneaking out Friday night

QUILCENE — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be on the lookout for a 16-year-old Quilcene girl who left her home Friday night.

Bailey E. Scott left a note Friday night that said she would be away for the night, but she did not return home and did not show up to school Monday, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

She is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. She has blue eyes and brown hair.

Her aunt, Roxann Anderson, said Bailey would likely be wearing a black The North Face jacket, leggings and black Ugg boots with bows.

Anderson said she is unsure of exactly what outfit she is wearing because the last time she saw her Bailey was wearing pajamas and getting ready for bed.

“We love her very very much,” Anderson said. “I just want to know she’s OK.”

Anderson said she is not mad at her niece and just wants her to call and come home.

Anderson said Bailey sneaked out in the middle of the night. She took a small backpack with her, though it isn’t big enough to carry extra clothes, Anderson said.

Bailey left her phone charger behind and left behind family photos, she said.

“I just need to know she’s OK because I’m thinking the worst,” she said.

Anyone who has any information about Bailey’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 360-344-9779.
