Mesquite police are asking for the public’s help finding a 15-year-old girl who has been missing since early Friday afternoon.
At about 12:45 p.m., Libni Gomez went outside her family’s home in the 2800 block of Shelduck Drive, in southeast Mesquite near the Kaufman County line, to start the family’s van, police said in a news release issued Friday evening.
When her mother and sister came out of the house a few minutes later, Libni was gone and the van keys were lying on the ground. Police searched for the girl without success.
Libni is Hispanic, is 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs about 91 pounds. She was wearing a blue-and-white horizontal-striped hoodie, blue jeans and high-heeled shoes of an unknown color.
