Oakland police looking for at-risk missing girl

BART police officers with good intentions may have prevented supervisors of a mentally disabled teenager from keeping her out of harms way.

Oakland Police say 16-year-old Shyanne White, an at-risk runaway walked away from a group home Tuesday evening and was followed by staff to a BART station.

But when they went to follow her into the station, they were stopped by BART police officers and lost track of her.

She is described as operating at the level of a elementary student.

Oakland police are asking for help in finding her and there have been some reports she has ties in Santa Maria and could be headed this way.

Shyanne is 5'4", 150 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, blue hooded sweater with pink stripes, blue pants and blue Converse tennis shoes.
