Sarasota police searching for two missing girls

- Sarasota police are searching for two girls who ran away from a YMCA Youth Shelter Wednesday morning.

Jocelyn Hubbard, 12, and Hannah Brown, 11, were last seen at the shelter on South Briggs around 8:40 a.m.

They've run away before, but because of their age, detectives are concerned for their safety.

Police describe Hubbard as a black female, 5 foot 4 and about 105 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black jeans, a pink hoodie sweater, and she was carrying a black sweatshirt.

Police describe Brown as a white female, 4 foot 10, 98 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black shirt with white designs on the front, black pants, and black shoes.

Police urge anyone with information to call the non-emergency line at 941-316-1201 or detective Megan Buck at 941-954-7067.
