NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD is asking for the public’s help in locating a person of interest in the death of a 16-year-old female.

Police say 46-year-old Kwan Allen is not a suspect but may have critical information about the death of 16-year-old Kaylan Ward, who was found dead June 4 on the I-10 East bridge at Bullard Avenue.    

At around 6:38 a.m., police responded to a call of a body on the bridge. When officers arrived, they found Ward in the right shoulder emergency lane. 

Ward was last seen walking river-bound on Earhart Boulevard near Magnolia Street at about midnight. At that time, she was trying to get a ride to N Miro Street, according to police. She was last seen wearing a black shirt, black bike shorts and orange slippers.

Investigators are currently in the process of gathering evidence and information to determine what happened to her.
