WILSONVILLE, Ore. (KOIN/CNN) â€“ Police in Oregon are looking for a sick teenager and her mother after the teen failed to show up for surgery on June 6.
13-year-old Kylee Dixon is a ward of the state, but she had been allowed to live with her mother.
Authorities havenâ€™t said exactly what is wrong with her, but her mother has posted many times on social media about her daughterâ€™s liver cancer and her reliance on natural medicineâ€”including CBD oilâ€”for treatment.
Clackamas County Police Sergeant Marcus Mendoza said, â€śKylee had a surgery scheduled for June 6. DHS was present when that was to occur, but unfortunately, Kylee and her mother did not show up.â€ť
The day after Kylee and her mother failed to show, Oregon DHS got a court order allowing them to take custody of Kylee. But when they showed up to serve it, she and her mother were gone.
Anyone with information on Kyleeâ€™s whereabouts is asked to contact Clackamas County police.
