The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a "voluntary missing" teen who ranaway from Lompoc and might be in Santa Barbara.  

The sheriff’s office says 15-year-old Luchelle Nichole Mabry a.k.a. "Luchelle Nicole Soto" was last seen on March 24 of this year. She was reportedly living in a group home in Lompoc when she ran away. 

Deputies say she left with a duffel bag containing various types of clothing when she took off. They believe she made it back to Tulare County at some point; Luchelle was previously living in Tulare County, potentially in Porterville or the unincorporated area of Poplar-Cotton or Strathmore. 

The sheriff’s office says Luchelle has ties to the Santa Barbara area and could be heading there. 

She is 5’1" tall and weighs 140 pounds, and she has brown hair and brown eyes.
