State police seek information on reported runaway

Warren-based Pennsylvania State Police are looking for a 14-year-old girl last seen leaving Sheffield High School on April 8.

Troopers said in a statement late Saturday night that they have received a report “of a juvenile runaway.”

Latesia Rae Pierce, 14, was “reported to have contacted a white male between the age of 17-21 years old via social media,” police say. “She was last seen leaving Sheffield High School entering a black… Honda Accord with multiple stickers on the rear of the vehicle and an unknown New York registration.”

Police explained that Pierce was last known to be in the area of Cuba, NY.

She is described as a “light brown skin female,” curly brown hair, hazel eyes and approximately five feet tall and 130 pounds. Troopers say she is also reported to be wearing a grey medical boot on her right leg.

Anyone who has contact with Pierce or knows her location is asked to contact Warren-based state police immediately at (814) 728-3600.
