Deputies seek Orange County runaway

Katelyn Elizabeth Pass

Sheriff's deputies are requesting the public's assistance in locating a juvenile runaway, reports the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

OCSO Chief Deputy Clint Hodgkinson said they are searching for 16-year-old Katelyn Elizabeth Pass of Orange. Pass reportedly left early, without permission, from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School campus at about noon on Wednesday, Sept. 23. Pass has a history of running away but has always resurfaced within a few days previously, said OCSO. The teen is believed to be in the Orange area; however, she has been located outside of Orange County when she disappeared in the past.

Pass has brown hair, blue eyes, weighs about 106 lbs., and is 5-foot-4. She was last seen wearing burgundy colored denim leggings, a black t-shirt, and a white backpack with unicorns on it. 

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is asks that if anyone has seen Pass or has any information on the juvenile's whereabouts, please contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at (409) 883-2612.
