13-year-old Ebony Watkins was last seen at Eugene Butler Middle School on Monday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Thirteen-year-old Ebony Watkins was last seen at Eugene Butler Middle School on Monday after school.
According to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office incident report, the teenager got on the school bus and then became upset with the bus driver and got off the bus.
Jill Johnson with the Duval County Public School system says a school official attempted to get Watkins to go inside the school and call a parent, but when they were unable to do that the school contacted the parents to inform them the child had left the campus.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office listed the 13-year-old as a runaway in the incident report, but Florida Department of Law has her posted on their website as a missing person.
Watkins' parents, Jamal Watkins and Tiffany Hubbard, say this is out of character for Ebony and ask that anyone who knows of her whereabouts or who has seen her to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500.
