The Saline County Sheriff’s Department is searching for two juveniles who reportedly ran away from the Butterfield Youth Services facility in Marshall Monday night. According to the report, Antonio Carnell and Cotez Gragg were discovered missing from their beds shortly before midnight.
Another resident told authorities the boys may have gone to the home of Dusty McGrew, a former employee of the agency. Gragg has reportedly run away before and was located at her residence. McGrew is currently facing charges of statutory rape and sodomy stemming from accusations she had sexual relations with a boy under her care while she was employed at the facility. Contact was made with McGrew, but the subjects were not located.
Law enforcement also spoke with Gragg’s foster parent who said the boy has family in the Kansas City area and may be traveling in that direction.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department at (660) 886-5511.
