PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police in Philadelphia are reaching out to the public for help finding a missing girl.

Twelve-year-old mina Ladson was last seen at her residence in the 800 block of N 42nd Street on Tuesday, Jan. 21st.

Mina is prescribed medication that, if not taken, could affect her well being.

Police say it’s possible Ladson is staying with family friends or relatives, but the amount of time she’s been missing without her medication puts her at risk.

Mina is described as 5’2” and 129 lbs with a dark complexion and eyes and black straight hair in braids. She was last seen wearing khaki pants, a navy shirt, a pink jacket with a gray stripe, a black and gray scarf and black boots.

Anyone with information should call police immediately.
