The family of a 14-year-old girl who went missing earlier this week fear that she has run off with the janitor at her high school.
Police in Illinois say that Anna Racine, 14, disappeared between 12.30am and 3am Monday from her family home in Bureau.
Racine's mother, Karen Podobinski, says she believes that Anna is with 21-year-old Morgan Burcham, a former janitor and track supervisor at the teen’s school.
