Police are still searching for a 16-year-old autistic girl who drove away from her mother's Ocean City home Wednesday and hasn't been seen since.

Natalie Woollerton was last seen driving a 2009 blue Lexis sedan with temporary New Jersey tags P101925. Woollerton doesn't have any driving experience and may be confused when driving on highways, police said.

The teen is not believed to have had a cell phone or cash when she left her house, police said.

Natalie’s father, Robert Woollerton, previously told The Press of Atlantic City that the girl has Asperger’s syndrome. Natalie, a student at Ocean City High School, left her mother’s Central Avenue home just after midnight Wednesday, likely due to an argument, Woollerton said.

She is described as white with brown hair and brown eyes, 5-foot 7-inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds.

The car she may be driving may also have a second license plate, New Jersey SL487K and may have minor damage to the rear of the vehicle, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact their local police department immediately. Witnesses also may call the Ocean City Police Department at 609-399-9111.
