New Orleans, La.- The New Orleans Police Department is asking the public's assistance in locating 15-year-old Adolphia Sanchez, who was last seen Thursday morning around 6:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of North Miro Street.

Sanchez's mother says she last seen her daughter when she was leaving their residence to go to Lake Area High School in Lake Terrace for school.
