SNOHOMISH, Wash. — The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is looking for help from the public to find 14-year-old Elizabeth Harwood, of Snohomish, who went missing at about noon Wednesday.
Harwood left her home at the 500 block of D Avenue around noon, indicating that she would ride her bike to a friend’s house. She did not arrive at that destination, the sheriff’s office said.
