Beaverton teen missing since last week located safely, deputies say
The Washington County Sheriff's Office tweeted Tuesday that Emmeline Tesch was located safely.
A 16-year-old girl from Beaverton who has been missing since Friday may be in danger because of medical issues and the hot weather, her mother said Monday.
Emmeline Tesch went missing from a park near her home in West Slope on Friday afternoon. Her mother, Jane Kleist-Tesch, said cameras show her daughter at the Sunset Transit Center and going up an elevator at the Oregon Zoo TriMet Max stop.
Kleist-Tesch said family and friends have been searching for Emmeline since Friday. On Monday, they gathered to search Washington Park. She said her daughter has medical issues and the hot weather is concerning.
"It's very crucial that we find her right away," Kleist-Tesch said. "I know that she did not have any food or drink with her, and she is highly unlikely to seek any food or water with her medical condition. Each day she is missing, every hour she is missing, she is likely passed out."
The Washington County Sheriff's Office told KGW that there has been no formal search for Emmeline because they don't have a specific location to search.
"We have listed her as a missing person person in the state-wide law enforcement data system, sent out bulletins to all the agencies in the area and we’re hoping someone on social media may have the tip we’re looking for," said Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Brian van Kleef.
Kleist-Tesch said she needs professionals to help with the search.
"We are left with family and friends to try and find my daughter," she said. "We are not the professionals. It's been very scary and very difficult."
