Yesica Anayeli Jiguan Feliciano was last seen in the 100 block of Merrimac Trail.
That was July 9, and the 16-year-old — who only had been in the U.S. for less than a year — remains missing.
Williamsburg Police spokesman Charles Ericsson said Feliciano was reported missing immediately. Because she is a juvenile, she was entered into the system as missing runaways.
Police posted information about Feliciano’s disappearance Tuesday and asked the public’s help for any information regarding her whereabouts. Ericsson said the department waited more than a month to post information because investigators were working with Feliciano’s family to develop possible leads, follow her social media and attempt to contact her via phone.
“Typically we don’t share juvenile information online, runaway juveniles return home or are found relatively quickly,” Ericsson wrote in an email. “Being that she has not returned home, we decided to reach out to the community for help.”
Ericsson said the department currently does not have any information regarding where Feliciano may have gone or with whom.
She’s 5-foot-6 tall with black hair and weighs approximately 120 pounds.
Police did not provide information on the description of the clothes she was wearing the last time she was seen.
Authorities are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to call Williamsburg Police at 757-220-2331.
