Langley RCMP are asking for the public's help finding a 14-year-old girl who was last seen 10 days ago.

Nina Khodaei-Joopari has been missing since Jan. 24, when she changed her clothes at her North Langley home and left for the evening, according to a police release.

Khodaei-Joopari was part of a specialized residential program, a care facility under the Ministry of Children and Family Development, said Cpl. Holly Largy of the Langley RCMP.

The notice is going out now out of concern for the teenager's safety, said Largy. Khodaei-Joopari had left the care facility before, but never for this long, she said.

Khodaei-Joopari is described by police as:

  • Persian.
  • Five-foot-four-inches tall and 126 lbs.
  • Brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Last seen wearing a red plaid shirt, pink Puma hoody, black leggings, and white and purple Puma runners.

She is known to frequent Surrey and lives "a high risk lifestyle," according to police.

Anyone with information that might help find her is asked to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
