Santa Barbara police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing teen.

Police say Angelica Guadalupe Esparza, 15, is considered at-risk due to her age.

She reportedly left her grandparents’ home Thursday around 10:30 a.m. and has not been heard from since.

Esparza is possibly at Stearn’s Wharf, Santa Barbara’s lower east side or Ortega Park, according to police, who say she does not have money, a cell phone, computer or other electronic devices with her.

The teen is described as being 5’3” tall, weighing 130 pounds and was last seen wearing jeans, black Vans-style shoes and a black T-shirt with “Santa Barbara” on the front and “805” on the back.

Anyone who sees her or knows where she might be is asked to call 911.
