A 16-year-old girl has been reported missing from her home in the Garden District after she didn’t show up for school Monday morning, New Orleans police said.
Amani Brown did not ride her assigned bus or show up for school Monday morning, according to New Orleans police report. A child-welfare specialist at Brown’s home in the 1200 block of Eighth Street told police Tuesday she had received a text message from Brown at an unfamiliar phone number saying that she was safe, but would not be returning to the home, the report states.
No photo of Brown was available, but she is described as a 5-foot-8, 153-pound black female with dark brown hair and brown eyes, the report states. Anyone who comes into contact with her is asked to call the NOPD Sixth District at 658-6060.
