MUKILTEO, Wash. — Police are searching for 18-year-old Eunice H. Ko, who is said to be missing and endangered.

Ko left her Mukilteo home in the 7200 block of 48th Avenue W about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The family said the teen has been struggling with recent personal setbacks and suffers from anxiety.

Ko is an Asian female, 5’4”, 110 to 120 pounds, brown eyes, and long black hair. She was last seen wearing a blue shirt and hoody, black stretch pants, and grey Converse gym shoes with white shoelaces.
