Update: Caliesta Selnes was located early May 22. She was staying with friends and is in good condition.

Kelowna Mounties are asking for the public’s help in locating a teenager who’s been missing for the last week.

Caliesta Selnes, 13, was last seen around 7 p.m. on May 12, at her grandmother’s home in the 100 block of Snowsell Street.

The slender, five-foot-seven teen—who has shoulder length black hair and a blue fringe—  has gone missing before, but is usually only for a couple of days.

Although she has connections to Calgary, police believe Selnes is still in Kelowna, probably frequenting the downtown core.

There is a concern that she may be experimenting with illicit drugs.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Selnes is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
