Two girls missing from North Hollywood home
Police on Friday were looking for two young girls from North Hollywood who appear to have run away from home.
Michelle Herrera, 10, and her 13-year-old half sister, Bianey Lagunas, were last seen about 8 a.m. Thursday at Sun Valley Middle School, according to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department.
When the girls did not come home from school, their mother contacted friends but could not find them, police said. "The children were despondent over house rules implemented by their mother,” the statement said.
Michelle is described as 4 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 83 pounds, with a thin build. Bianey is 4 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 128 pounds and has a medium build.
Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to contact the LAPD's North Hollywood Division at (818) 623-4031 or (877) 527-3247.
