Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating 15-year-old Ariyan “Yannie” Branton, who was last seen by her mother at their residence yesterday in the 5600 block of Clements Drive.
According to Branton’s mother, Branton left their residence shortly before 10:00 A.M. on yesterday and has not been seen nor heard from since. Branton’s mother believes her daughter may be acting out following a disagreement they had the day before resulting in her phone being taken away.
Ariyan Branton is described as an African-American female with a thin build, brown complexion, brown eyes, and curly brown hair. She was last seen wearing gray pants and a sweater bearing the logo of Joseph S. Clark School.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ariyan Branton is asked to call 821-2222.
