Investigators said she disappeared without her cellphone, wallet and with only the clothes she was dressed in.
 
"Whether she's 18 or not, this is not her normal thing to do, to stay away from family this long. Something is keeping her from home," said family friend Chandra Cleveland-Jennings.
 
Police said they had no substantive leads in the case, and Bell's family said they are frustrated.

They have been passing out flyers at budget motels in Rock Hill and Charlotte.
 
"We are a little frustrated. As far as we know, there have been spottings of her at a motel," Cleveland-Jennings said.
 
Monday, Bell's family met with police and a representative from the NAACP.
 
"They came in to make sure everything was handled correctly, and they are using their resources to get out that she's still missing," Cleveland-Jennings said.
 
Anyone with information on Bell's whereabouts is asked to call police.
