The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a missing 16-year-old who’s been missing for more than a month.

The missing girl, Hayden Locke, was last seen leaving her home on April 16 in Bonney Lake, Washington. She’s been missing for 38 days as of this reporting.

Hayden is 5 feet, one inch tall and weighs approximately 100 lbs. She has blue eyes and dirty blonde hair that may or may not be dyed a different color. Authorities believe Hayden may stay in the local area or travel to other cities in Washington.
