Canonsburg police said they are looking for a 14-year-old girl who went missing around 9 p.m. Sunday.
Police said Joselyn Scott left her home around 9 p.m. Sunday after reportedly having an argument with her mother.
Investigators said Scott is as a white girl with blonde hair. She is 5-feet 2-inches tall and weighs 130 pounds.
She was last seen wearing ripped-up jeans, a white jean jacket with red trim, purple T-shirt, black boots and a black-and-grey cap that had flames on it, according to family friend Holly Dami and police. She also had a white and black backpack. Scott also had a beige paisley rolling suitcase, Dami said.
Police Chief R.T. Bell did not return a voice mail seeking further information.
Dami told Canon-McMillan Patch that the search for the girl has been ongoing since last night.
"I know the Canonsburg police were looking for her last night," she said.
Dami added: "My only fear is that she got on the highway and started hitchhiking."
Dami also created a Facebook page to help get the word out about Scott being missing. It includes more pictures of the girl and can be accessed here.
Canonsburg police ask anyone with information on the girl's whereabouts to call the department at 724-745-8020 x23.
