According to Edmonton Police Service, 14-year-old Celeste Lacendre Napope was last seen by a friend on Sunday, May 24, at approximately 3:30 pm, in the area of 146 Avenue and 117 Street.
“Lacendre Napope was reportedly planning to meet friends and was riding her grey and blue bike at the time,” EPS said in a release.
“While Lacendre Napope has visited friends before, it is unusual for her to be away from home for this long. As a result, her disappearance is considered to be out of character and there are concerns for her well-being. There are no indications to suggest foul play at this time.”
