ARCADIA >> Police and worried family members have asked the public to keep an eye out for a 16-year-old San Marino High School student believed to have run away after being dropped off to take her SAT exams in Arcadia Saturday.
Mira Hu was last seen at Arcadia High School at 7:30 a.m. when her parents dropped her off for an SAT exam, Arcadia police Sgt. Dan Crowther said in a written statement. Her parents could not find her when they returned to the Arcadia campus to pick her up.
“A short time later she sent a message to her brother indicating that she was running away because she was overwhelmed by school and the exam,” Crowther said. “Preliminary information indicates she may be traveling to central or northern California.”
Hu is Chinese, 5 feet 3 inches tall, 95 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, and she was carrying a large navy-colored bag.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Arcadia police at 626-574-5121, or their local law enforcement agency. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
