PARMA, Ohio — Police are investigating after a teen reported missing out of Iowa apparently made her way to Northeast Ohio for the second time this year.

Authorities say Jody Ann Palmer, 17, was last seen in Parma around 3:50 a.m. Saturday morning. She is described as being 4-foot-6 and weighing 85 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Back in January, Jody disappeared from her Iowa home and left a note for her grandparents saying she was "going to live in California," but was found in Parma nearly two weeks later. Twenty-one-year-old Cleveland resident Stephen A. Davis and his 49-year-old mother Laurie Metot were both charged with interference with custody in the incident.

Metot later pleaded guilty and received 16 days in jail, but after Davis allegedly failed to show up for a court date in April and has been on the run ever since. Although officials have not said for sure whether they believe Jody is with Davis, they do note that he still has warrants out for his arrest in the previous case. He is described as being 5-foot-6 and weighing 120 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes, and is known to frequent the areas around Parma and Cleveland.
