Richland County Sheriff's deputies are asking the public for help locating two teenage girls who have been missing since January.

Sheriff Leon Lott says 15-year-old Raquel Cruz has not been seen since January 8th.  Lott says she has been in contact with her family, but her location is not known.

15-year-old Shaniqua Dixon has been missing since she left home while her mother was sleeping on January 14th. Investigators say she took clothing with her when she left. She has contacted her mother, but she has not been seen.

Photos of Cruz and Dixon are attached to this story. If you have seen them, or if you know anything about where they are, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
