MASON CITY | Mason City police are asking for the public's help in locating a 15-year-old girl missing since October.
Tala Rose Schaal, 15, was last seen by her family in their home about 9:45 p.m. Oct. 9. She was reported missing the next day.
Schaal is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and about 130 pounds. Her hair is dyed and may be cut in a variety of ways, police said, noting she often changes her hair color and styles.
Police have followed up on tips but she has not been located, Mason City Police Lt. Rich Jensen said in a news release Tuesday.
They believe she is in the Mason City/Clear Lake area and has been since she went missing.
“It is still believed that Schaal is in the North Iowa area and due to her young age is being harbored by others,” police said in a release.
Anyone with information about Schaal's whereabouts is asked to call the Cerro Gordo Sheriff’s Office at 641-421-3000.
