VILLA RICA, Ga. -

Police are currently searching for three teens that escaped a behavioral services center late Sunday night.

According to Villa Rica Police, three teenage girls who were residents of Willowbrooke at Tanner, Behavioral Health Services, escaped the building and are now missing.

Police said the teens escaped after stealing a nurse’s security badge which allowed them outside.

The girls are identified as Samantha Noelle Abbott, 17, Madeline 'Maddie' Nicole Terry, 15, and Audrey L. Aldridge, 16.

FOX 5's George Franco spoke with the mother of one of the missing girls. Angela Terry, Maddie's mom, is worried sick about her daughter and has posted fliers between Villa Rica and Paulding County hoping someone spots them.

Angela Terry spoke with her daughter about five hours before they escaped.

Anyone with information about the missing teens is encouraged to contact Villa Rica Police at 678-840-1320.
