Police ask for public's help finding teenager missing since last week


Fargo police are looking for a teenager missing since last week.

In a news release, the department says 14-year-old Ariana-Lei Poitra (seen above) was last seen Thursday, March 5.

She's described as being about 5-foot-5, with tattoos "all over" her right hand. She wears glasses about half the time.

Lt. Joel Vettel told BringMeTheNews they received some tips since asking for the public's help, but nothing "concrete."

She was last seen wearing a purple shirt, black leggings, knee high white socks, gold colored Ugg boots and a gray leather coat. She also had a black and white camouflage backpack.

Vettel said the department doesn't feel she's in "imminent danger," and it's mainly her age combined with the length of time she's been missing that prompted authoirties to reach out to the public.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fargo Police Department at (701) 235-4493, or your local law enforcement.
