A 15-year-old girl is missing and the Portland Police Bureau needs the public’s help finding her.

On the evening of November 6, 2023, East Precinct officers responded to reports of a runaway in the Mount Tabor area. Officers learned that Magdalene “Moon” Bryce left her home sometime after 9:00 a.m. that morning. Upon further investigation, officers determined that Magdalene, who can be non-verbal at times, used her bus pass at a Trimet stop near Southeast Powell Boulevard and Southeast 71st Avenue at 2:03 p.m. A short time later, Magdalene was seen getting off the bus at a stop near the Tilikum Crossing Bridge.

On November 9, 2023, detectives learned that Magdalene may be having thoughts about harming herself. Detectives now consider the teen missing and endangered.

Magdalene is described as a white female, 5’7”, very thin, with shoulder length straight brown hair and brown eyes. Magdalene was last seen wearing a black rain jacket, black pants, black shoes with a silver buckle and a mask with pink flowers on it.

The Portland Police Bureau Missing Persons Unit is investigating. Anyone who sees Magdalene is urged to call 911. Anyone with information about this case is urged to email missing@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference case number 23-290123.
