Los Angeles police are searching for a 13-year-old girl who was last seen Tuesday morning, and her family says she is at risk of hurting herself.

Evelyn Morales was seen about 8 a.m. in the 200 block of North Chicago Street in Boyle Heights, but has since disappeared, according to a statement issued late Tuesday by the LAPD.

Morales’ family is “extremely concerned for her welfare,” and her family told authorities that she was depressed.

Police said Morales is 5-foot-1, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a blue sweater, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. Her shirt said “Utah” on the front, police said.
