The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office needs help finding four girls who are said to have run away from a foster care facility in Brandon overnight.
Deputies say the girls -- ages 4, 10, 11 and 13 -- went missing from A Kid's Place, 1715 Lithia Pincecrest Road, sometime before 10 p.m. Thursday night.
A staff member reportedly noticed they were gone during a bed count.
Officials believe they likely climbed out of a window and then either jumper or squeezed through the facility's gate to escape overnight.
The girls' names, ages, and descriptions from HCSO are as follows:
Allison Nelson: 4 years old. Caucasian, 3'08", 39 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes.
Anabella Gonzalez: 10 years old. Caucasian, 4'06", 66 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes.
Heavenlynn Gonzalez: 11 years old. Caucasian, 4'07", brown hair and brown eyes.
Ashlyn Smith: 13 years old. Caucasian, 5'06", 120 pounds, brown hair and blue eyes.
Three of the girls -- Allison, Anabella and Heavenlynn -- are said to be sisters.
A Kid's Place is a non-profit organization that provides foster care to abused, neglected and abandoned children.
Through a court ruling, the girls' residence was kept private from their parents, but officials say- at this point- their wellbeing is more important than their parents learning of where they live.
Deputies ask anyone who sees them, or has information on their whereabouts, to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office immediately.
