A Laurens man reported his daughter as a runaway in a case yesterday afternoon on Mount Olive Church Road. He stated that he, his wife and their 16-year-old daughter had come to watch theMt.Olive Christmas Parade yesterday afternoon. The daughter’s 16-year-old boyfriend and his mother were also there. The man said that after the parade the daughter was seen riding from the location in a green convertible being driven by her boyfriend. He said his wife was looking right into their daughter’s face when she yelled “stop,” but the two juveniles continued driving away, heading up Poplar Springs Road.
Deputies were advised that the daughter had a DJJ tracking bracelet on her ankle. The boyfriends father, who owns the convertible, was contacted and said he didn’t want to have charges filed on his son for taking the car.
