A fund has been established to help finance the search for a North Carolina girl who has been missing for two weeks.

Danielle Locklear, 15, from Cumberland County, N.C. was reported missing by her grandfather on March 11.

He said that his granddaughter left his house on foot to visit a friend's house, but when he went to pick her up, he found out that she had never arrived.

A fund was set up on a Go Fund Me website over the weekend to help in the search for her, and a special Balloon Release & Community Gathering of Hope for Danielle is also planned for later this week, according to local WBTW News.

"Your donations will help with additional searches, posters, newspaper notices, and reward (funds) on behalf of her family and friends who are praying for Dannie's safe return," the Go Fund Me page says.

The balloon release and gathering is planned for Saturday at 6 p.m. at Camping World 5117 U.S. Highway 301 South in Hope Mills.

Officials said last week that the case is still active, and they are actively searching for Danielle. Police say she may have been at a creek that runs between Legion Road and Cameron Road. The area where she was last seen was searched by a Police K-9 unit. Some of her clothes were found by the creek, but further investigations have turned up empty.

Locklear has not been in contact with any friends or relatives, and her cell phone is off.

Police describe Locklear as bi-racial, half Native American and half Caucasian. She has black hair and green eyes, and is 5 feet, one inch tall. She weighs around 150 pounds.

The Fayetteville Police Department, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, the FBI and the SBI are searching for Locklear.

Police are urging anyone with information about Locklear's disappearance to contact Fayetteville Police or the FBI.
