Authorities in Branch County are trying to locate two female teen runaways that they believed are still in the area. The Michigan State Police Marshall post says 15-year-old Nikkie Lee-Ann Fields of Girard Township is thought to be with another runaway, 15-year-old Katie Watters.

Nikkie was last seen taking a bus home from Coldwater High School on Monday. Both teens were reported missing Tuesday morning.  Nikkie is described as a white female of slender build, 5’ 6” tall with blonde hair and blue eyes. It is not known what she was wearing when last seen. Both teens are believed to still be in the city of Coldwater but police are not sure of their exact location. No information has been made available about why the two ran away from home or why they are believed to be together.
