Martinsville, Ind. – Police are asking for the public’s help in locating 15-year-old Jocelyn Lauck who has been missing for nearly 72 hours.

Lauck is 5’4” and weighs 120 pounds. She has blue eyes, blonde hair and was last seen around 10:30 p.m. Monday night.

According to Detective Jerry Bertelsen, Lauck is a suspected runaway.

“At this time, we do not believe she is in immediate danger, but given the length of time she’s been missing, we want to locate her as quickly as possible to secure her safety,” Bertelsen said.

According to Police Chief Matt Long, anyone found to be assisting Lauck or who fails to report reliable leads or information about her can be subject to criminal charges.

Martinsville police posted information about Lauck on their Facebook page earlier this week.

Anyone who knows Lauck’s whereabouts or who has information about her is asked to contact Bertelsen at 765-349-4900 or after hours at 765-342-6614.
