SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office is searching for an 11-year-old girl who went missing early Friday morning.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kionna Rowe says a woman called just before 2 a.m. to say her daughter, Giesselle Bracamontes, had run away from their home on Jion Court, near Hillsdale Boulevard. The two had gotten in a fight and Bracamontes was last seen leaving the house on foot.
She is considered to be at-risk because of her age.
Deputies started searching the area and Sgt. Rowe says they were later joined by an air operations unit, a dozen members of a search and rescue team, and tracking dogs.
Rowe says they are interviewing family and friends and have uncovered a few leads.
When she left her house, Bracamontes was wearing a striped yellow tank top and black shorts, and she could be barefoot.
She is about 5 feet tall, weighs 115 pounds, with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.
She does not have a cell phone with her.
Anyone with information about her location should call the sheriff’s office at 916-874-5115.
