Independence police have asked the public’s help in finding a 15-year-old girl missing more than a week.
Mahogany L. Washington, 15, disappeared from her home in the 1400 block of South Baker Drive at 4 a.m. Nov. 2. She has health issues that require medication, and authorities say they do not know if she has been taking her medicine.
Police describe her as African American, 5-foot-3, 130 pounds with blonde shoulder-length hair, hazel eyes and two tattoos — a heart on her hip and a camel on one toe.
She may be with her boyfriend, 17-year-old Michael Davis of St. Joseph, police said.
Never miss a local story.
Police ask anyone with information about Mahogany’s whereabouts to dial 911, call the nearest law enforcement agency or call Independence police at 816-325-7300.
