A Vancleave teenager has been missing for a week since she left home with some of her belongings in a purple Nike gym bag, Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

Nova Clark, 16, left two notes that said she was leaving but would be OK, Ezell said.

She was last seen at her home Oct. 29, and by the next day, she was gone, he said.

Nova’s family described her as 5-foot-1 and 100 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

To give information that could help find her, call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department at 228-769-3063.
