GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Investigators in George County continue to search for a missing 14-year-old girl in a kidnapping case.

They now say Lily Johnson knew the 19-year-old man she is believed to be with and may have left voluntarily with Kenneth Shane Fountain.

Captain Ben Brown of the George County Sheriff's Department told WLOX News that the two had some type of relationship and he believes they met on social media. Brown says investigators are following every possible lead, but so far none have led them to the pair.

Johnson is a student at George County Middle School. It is believed she left her home sometime Wednesday night by climbing out of her bedroom window.
