CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) — This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a missing woman and her 8-year-old daughter who were last seen in south Charlotte. 

Police said Megan Stack, 33, and her 8-year-old daughter, Ava Stack, left their home on Cloister Drive around 1:30 p.m. Monday, December 4 and haven’t been seen since. 

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department requested an Amber Alert for the 8-year-old girl, but the request was denied by the state due to it not meeting the restrictive criteria. Detectives say they are now applying for a Silver Alert for the mother based on her emotional state. 

Stack and her daughter haven’t returned home and their whereabouts are unknown. Because of Megan Stack’s emotional state and recent behavior, there is serious concern for their safety, police said. 

Megan Stack was last seen wearing a maroon jacket, pants and black boots. She was driving a silver 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe with a paper tag. Her daughter, Ava, was last seen wearing a white short-sleeve shirt with a heart design on it, purple jeans, and grey shoes with a fuchsia zip-up jacket.

Anyone who sees or has information regarding Stack is asked to call 911 immediately. Folks may also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
