***UPDATE 1:00 p.m.***
Jefferson City police say they found McLellan hiding in the attic of a home on Church Street just after noon Monday. They say she was in good condition when they found her. McLellan was then transported to the Prenger Juvenile Center. Police aren’t saying yet why the teen didn’t return home.
Jefferson City police officers are now going door-to-door, trying to find missing teenager Kierra McLellan. She was last seen near Riverside Drive at about 6:00 a.m. Sunday, so investigators are checking with everyone in that area for leads. A SWAT team is also looking for McLellan, in the wooded area near Riverside Park. JCPD Lieutenant Randall Dampf says they think she left on her own free will, and wasn’t kidnapped or attacked, but adds they can’t rule anything out right now.
Contact JCPD if you know where she is.
