Authorities now think a missing Illinois teenager and her baby might be in Kentucky.
They are investigating that possibility as they continue to search for 13-year-old Katherine Derleth and her three-week-old son, Christopher Derleth of Edwardsville.
The girl’s 39-year-old stepfather, also named Christopher Derleth, is suspected of taking them to either West Virginia or Kentucky in a green Mercury Villager with Illinois license plates and damage to the rear and driver’s side.
Derleth had been ordered to stay away from his stepdaughter until an investigation of an unknown nature was completed.
Authorities say Katherine Derleth has a pacemaker and may be in need of medical attention.
