The Hoboken Police Department is seeking the public’s help to find a 17-year-old girl that has been missing since Thursday, when she was last seen at a friend’s house in Jersey City.

Kasandra Baez, 17, of Hoboken, has brown eyes and blonde hair with a stud nose ring in her right nostril, authorities said. She is known to frequent Jersey City, therefore their police department is assisting Hoboken detectives with the investigation.

The teen, who stands at about five-feet one inches tall and weighs around 125 pounds, has not been seen or made contact with anyone since this morning.

Anyone who comes in contact with Baez or is aware of her whereabouts is asked to please contact the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100/201-420-2131 or Det. Anthony Hochstadter at hochstadtera@hobokenpd.org.
