New Orleans police are searching for a 13-year-old girl whose guardian last saw her leaving her eastern New Orleans home on Monday with her mother. Daja Blount left her house in the 8800 block of Curran Road around 12:15 p.m. to go with her mother to a store, according to a New Orleans Police Department news release.
The guardian became concerned when she could not contact Blount or her mother, and has not heard from either of them since they left, police said.
Police described Blount as having black braided hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow hooded sweatshirt and black-and-white polka dot pajama pants with a monkey print.
Police ask anyone with information about the location of Blount to call 504.821.2222.
