Police hope members of the public can help them locate Trisha Harry

A Nanaimo teen who left her house Tuesday night and didn’t come home is now being considered missing.

“Repeated attempts to contact her have proven negative. Her behaviour has her immediate family and caregivers concerned for her safety and well-being,” the press release notes.
