Police in Oakland, California are asking the public to be on the lookout for a 12-year-old girl who went missing from the area last week.
On January 23, Sariyah Cherie Barker went missing from her therapist’s office located in the Fruitvale district of Oakland. She left the facility without her cellphone making contacting the pre-teen a nearly impossible task.

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NaMus), Sariyah is 5’4″ tall and 105 pounds. At the time of her disappearance, she had dyed strawberry blonde hair, brown eyes, and was wearing a black Nike sweater, blue jeans, gray/purple Jordan sneakers, and a silver cross necklace.
