Mark Keppel High School student reported missing in Monterey Park

Family members are searching for a female Mark Keppel High School student who has been missing since Monday.

The father of the missing girl posted on Facebook saying that 15-year-old Leilani Young ran away from her home in Monterey Park on Feb 1. The family has lost contact with her since then. A friend of the family said Young was spotted at Alhambra High School on Wednesday, Feb 4, but disappeared again. Monterey Park police said they have been monitoring Young's social media. She hasn't posted any content in two days. They believe Young is with friends and is voluntarily hiding from her parents.

Anyone who knows of Young’s whereabouts is asked to call Monterey Park police at (626)573-1311.
