Frantic Search for Missing North Carolina Teen

Photo Courtesy - Baltimore Police Department(BALTIMORE) -- The search continues for Phylicia Simone Barnes, a high school student from North Carolina who went missing in Baltimore. The 16-year-old honor student from Monroe, N.C., was visiting her half-sister when she disappeared three days after Christmas.

Phylicia was last heard from Dec. 28 via Facebook when she posted a note saying she was at her sister's apartment with her sister's boyfriend. The 5-foot, 8-inch African American student has been missing ever since.

The FBI and Baltimore police are conducting the investigation. Baltimore Metro Crime Stoppers has offered a cash reward of up to $2,000 for her discovery.

Police told ABC News on Saturday that they obtained additional security video from the area surrounding the apartment, but it has yet to shed new light on the case. FBI helicopters have scoured the area for days without finding any clues.

Police say several people who visited the apartment are considered persons of interest, and the two likely scenarios proposed by investigators are abduction or murder.
