A Cordova family is anxiously awaiting word that their daughter is safe. The 15-year-old Jennifer Voyles was upset and left after being disciplined . She was reported as an endangered runaway child at 6:17 a.m. Monday, June 20.

Her mother, Ilda Baez, told the responding Memphis Police Department officers that Voyles has run away three times in the past. This time, her daughter was upset when Baez confiscated her phone around midnight for texting and sending photos. She realized that Voyles was missing around 5 a.m.
