MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Bemidji Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Eliza Defoe, a 14-year-old who was last seen around Detroit Lakes on April 8.

Police describe her as 5 foot 1, 110 pounds, with brown eyes and short black hair. She has a pierced right nostril and pierced ears. She was last seen wearing a white jacket with yellow and white crocs.

No photo of Defoe was provided. At this point, police say the investigation is not suspicious.
