GRESHAM, Ore. - The Gresham Police Department is asking for the public’s help looking for a missing teenage girl.
Harmony Martz, 16, was last seen with her non-custodial parent in the Gresham area Friday at 6 p.m.
Police said on Friday, they learned Martz had walked away from a family member’s house around Southeast 178th Avenue and Southeast Division Street. She has not been seen since.
She left with a backpack full of clothes and a Tri-Met pass, but no other money.
She was last seen wearing Ugg-style boots, blue jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt with “Pink” written on it.
She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs around 110 pounds, according to family members. She has shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.
Police say Harmony has friends in both the Gresham and downtown Portland area, so she may be headed that direction.
They say she has a cell phone, but it’s been turned off since Friday evening.
Martz has some minor mental health issues that could affect her decision-making and how she interacts with people. She needs her medications.
Anyone who knows of Martz’s whereabouts should call the non-emergency police dispatch line at 503-823-3333 or 911 if she is in danger.
