Nelson Co., Va. – The mother of 17-year-old Alexis Murphy, who has been missing for nearly two weeks, is speaking out about claims her daughter was searching for marijuana before she vanished, according to WTVR in Richmond, Va.

The report says in her own words, Alexis tweeted about being high and “hitting the weed.” And in pictures the 17-year-old can be seen smoking something.

Days after Randy Taylor was arrested and charged with the abduction of the missing Nelson County teen, Taylor’s attorney said his client admits he saw Alexis the day she disappeared, WTVR reports. However, he claims he wasn’t the last one to see her.

According to Mike Hallahan, Taylor’s attorney, his client said he met Alexis nearly a month ago while working at a local car wash where Taylor said the teen spotted him smoking pot – and sparked up a conversation.
