Police asked for the public’s help to find a 16-year-old girl from Redondo Beach who has been missing for more than one month.
Emily Espinosa was last seen walking away from Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach on July 22, said Redondo Beach police Sgt. Shawn Freeman.
Espinosa was attending summer school at Mira Costa, where she was a junior. Police said they believe Espinosa was upset about a recent breakup with a boyfriend.
Police followed up on a lead that Espinosa left for Idaho with that boyfriend but that information turned out to be false.
Police have no indication that Espinosa was abducted or forced to leave Mira Costa High School against her will. She has not been heard from by her friends, family or on social media since July 22. Espinosa didn’t have a cellphone, bank or credit cards with her when she vanished, according to Freeman.
Espinosa was described as white with short, brown hair and brown eyes. She weighs about 112 pounds and stands 5 feet 8 inches tall, according to police.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts was asked to call the Redondo Beach police tipline at (310) 937-6685 or 911. Tipsters can also send text messages to (310) 339-2362 or Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All tips can be made anonymously.
