Family and neighbors of a missing Rock Hill teenager are hoping the community will help find the Northwestern High School senior.
Jamie Lee Allison Magras, 18, was last seen early Friday, according to York County Sheriff’s deputies. Family members, friends and neighbors gathered by the dozens Saturday afternoon in the teen’s neighborhood to pray and hand out fliers with her photo.
Sheriff’s deputies, K-9 units and a State Law Enforcement Division helicopter searched into Friday evening in the Woodlands neighborhood for the teen.
She was last seen around 1 a.m. near her home near Twin Lakes and Mount Gallant roads, said Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Magras stands 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds, said her stepfather Robert Maietta, who described her as a “very bright” student with dirty blond, wavy hair and green eyes. Magras is a cosmetology student at Northwestern High, he said.
“As far as we know, she didn’t take any supplies,” said Maietta, who added his stepdaughter left her wallet and other personal items behind. “It’s frightening to think she is hungry.”
Faris said Saturday the sheriff’s office continues to look for Margas, but officials have discontinued the search with the K-9 units and SLED helicopter until the office receives more leads.
The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who has seen Magras to call 911 or 803-629-3059.
