Local authorities are looking for a teenage mother last seen in Marshall County Jan. 10 with a Lyon County man.

Princeton Police say Alexis "Lexie" Gillespie, 17, left home Jan. 4 and was last seen six days later with Jacob Lawrence, 30, at the Walnut Court Apartments in Benton.

Lawrence was later arrested in Lyon County and is scheduled to appear in Lyon County Circuit Court Feb. 6 on a parole revocation hearing.

Gillespie, of Princeton, was not located with Lawrence when he was arrested. She posted about having phone problems on social media the day she was last seen. A meme was posted from the same account on Jan. 13.

According to the Missing Pieces Network, Gillespie is 4 foot 11 and 95 pounds, with blond hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a grey Aeropostale hooded sweat shirt and jeans.

She has a small tattoo of a cross on her left hand between her thumb and forefinger, and another on the under side of her wrist with the words "Stay Strong" in a heart.

Gillespie is the mother of 3-month-old twins.

Anyone with information on Gillespie's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Princeton Police Department at 270-365-2041.
