LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police need help finding a 17-year-old who they say ran away from home.
According to authorities, 17-year-old Aleah Scheible was last seen on Dec. 9, 2020, in North Las Vegas.
She was reported missing on that day and was last seen near the area of Pivot Avenue near Commerce Street and El Campo Grande Avenue.
