Missing Snohomish girl found safe in Lynnwood

Update: The Sheriff’s Office reported this morning that the girl has been found safe in Lynnwood.

SNOHOMISH — The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported Wednesday night that it was looking for help locating a missing developmentally disabled Snohomish girl.

Elizabeth Harwood, 14, went missing Wednesday afternoon.

Harwood left her home in the 500 block of D Ave. around noon, indicating that she would ride her bike to a friend’s house, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said. She did not arrive at that destination.

Family members searched for her for three hours and then called to report Harwood missing.

The Snohomish Police Department conducted an area search.

After several hours of unsuccessful searching, the sheriff’s office Search and Rescue Unit was called in.

“So far, authorities have no leads as to where Harwood might be or where she went after leaving home,” Ireton said.

Harwood reportedly has the mental capacity of a younger child, she said.

She was seen leaving her house wearing a yellow green and blue striped t-shirt with khaki pants riding a white bike with peace sign stickers.

Harwood is 5 foot, 6 and weighs about 215 pounds. She has brown hair and shoulder-length brown, curly hair.

Anyone with information about Harwood is asked to call 911 immediately.
