East High School Student Missing

My neighbor's daughter in Pleasant Hill is missing. Her name is Kara Van Cleave.
  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 160 lbs.
  • Eye Color: Hazel
  • Hair Color: Auburn with hot pink
  • Date of Birth: 1/25/91
  • Age: 16
  • Last seen: 3/27/07
If you have any knowledge of her whereabouts or any helpful information at all please contact me at (515) 321-5077 and I'll be in touch with them.

Please also be in prayer for her safety and for God to give her family peace in this trying time.

She was spotted yesterday up at East High School - so she is still in town, and somebody commented on this post that they think they saw her at the Altoona Wal-Mart. Just an FYI - yes the police have been contacted. Also this appears to be a runaway situation, not a kidnapping.

Update - 4/16:
She called home last Thursday, and is now home. Thank you for your prayer!

I wouldn't worry, I think I saw this girl recently. Possibly at the Altoona Walmart. Has the family filed a missing persons report? I take it that you do not think that her life is in danger or she was kidnapped otherwise there would be an amber alert issued. I will say a prayer for her.

Thanks for your prayer, and for you information which I passed on to the family.

No one believes that she is in immediate danger, but that doesn't mean that she is in a safe enviroment.

The family has notified the police, and filed a report.

Thank God he changed her heart and she went home. Remind people to make sure that the police give a photo to the missing persons bureau so that it can be posted to the web. I believe that your blog/emails helped spread the word & led her home. Keep up the Good work! :-) blessing
