Police continued to search for two missing Mooresville girls and their adoptive father Sunday. The girls' mother said one of the missing girls is nine months pregnant and needs urgent medical care.
Missing are 12-year-old Keara Lasha Hess, who is pregnant, and Sierra Nicole Hess, 11. They haven't been seen since leaving home with their adoptive father Thursday morning, investigators said.
Iredell Sheriff's Office Lt. Julie Gibson said Sunday night that investigators haven't received any tips from the public and have no concrete information about where their father, Mathew Hess, might have taken them.
"We're not able to track any activity that he's done at all," such as cell-phone calls, Gibson said.
Jeanette Hess, the girls' mother, is especially concerned about Keara because she was due to give birth to a baby boy over the weekend, she said in an interview with the Observer.
She told the Observer that she wants her daughter's pregnancy disclosed because she is scared Keara won't receive medical care and because it will help people notice them.
