Update: The 14 year-old girl has been located and is safe.
Portland Police Bureau detectives and East Precinct officers are currently searching for a 14-year-old Lily Wirth, who was last seen leaving her residence, in the 14500 block of NE Glisan Street, at about 5 p.m. this evening.
Lily is cognitively challenged, and does not always recognize when she may be in an unsafe situation. She is very friendly, and may not communicate at the same level as other kids her age. Detectives believe Lily got upset and ran off, and do not believe foul play is involved.
Missing Persons detectives have activated the "A Child is Missing" emergency reverse phone notification system. A.C.I.M is a service available to law enforcement, which makes a series of automated, pre-recorded phone calls to listed landline phone numbers in the geographic region where a child is reported missing. The recording asks that citizens check around their properties and keep an eye out for the missing child.
Lily is described as a white female, 14 years old, with short, curly, strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. She is 5'4" tall and weighs 145 pounds. She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, pink shorts and pink flip-flops. She may be carrying a white drawstring backpack and is believed to be riding a silver scooter.
Anyone who knows of Lily's whereabouts is asked to immediately call 9-1-1.
Anyone with additional information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at 503-823-0446.
