PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland police are asking for the public’s help finding a missing 14-year-old girl who they said could be in danger without her medication.

14-year-old Desiree Angelica Hayes ran away from home on Dec. 13, police said.

She needs medication regularly and could be in danger of an unspecified medical issue without it, according to police.

Hayes was last seen at the Lloyd Center mall where she may have tried to get a ride to Seattle to see a friend. Police said she was wearing a dark purple sweater, black leggings and red leather shoes. She was carrying a red leather purse.

Anyone who sees Hayes is asked to call 9-1-1.

Police said they do not suspect foul play in the case.
