ST. PETERS — Relatives of a missing St. Charles County teenager are asking the public to help find her.

Authorities say 16-year-old Molly Linhardt of St. Peters may be with a 27-year-old convicted sex offender. The two previously worked together at a restaurant. Linhardt has been missing since Monday night.

Police say they have no clues in the disappearance.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Linhardt's grandmother and sister met with reporters Wednesday, asking for help in locating the teen. Authorities believe she may be with a Wright City man convicted of statutory rape for having sex with a 17-year-old girl when he was 17 in 2002.
