UPDATE: RCMP report that Lasheena Seward has now been found.
RCMP are asking for help in locating 16-year-old Lasheena Seward, who was last seen May 5 at a Port Alberni group home.
Seward was supposed to see her sister in Nanaimo but never showed up. She is considered to be at high risk because of the duration of her absence, her age and her undetermined means of supporting herself.
The last contact with her came via Facebook on May 7, when she said she was with a friend and would return May 8.
Her family has said she could be in Nanaimo or Victoria.
Seward is described as Indigenous with shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes.
Police ask anyone with information on Seward to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at 250-723-2424.
