ORIGINAL POST:

Nanaimo RCMP are asking the public for help to locate a missing 17-year-old who has not been heard from by family members.

Police say Jada Charlie-Carlson has not been seen by her family for approximately one month, which is out of character for her.

Charlie-Carlson lives independently, but the RCMP say her family are concerned with her lifestyle choices and the length of time that they have not heard from her.

Jada Charlie-Carlson is described as an Indigenous female, 5 feet 2 inches tall, 115 pounds, with long brown hair that she often lightens with highlights.

Anyone who has information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file # 2020-41713.
