Lacey Police are asking for the public’s help to find 16-year-old Jenna Gipson believed to be in the Centralia/Chehalis/Tacoma area.

She was spotted in February at a hotel in Centralia, but was gone when officers arrived.

Detectives are very concerned for her safety after she ran away in January. “It’s important to get her back safely,” said Lacey Police Det. Jon Mason. “She is a younger girl, on the streets. We want to make sure she’s back with her family and safe, so she’s not out there anymore. She’s also been a runaway a number of times and she does have a felony warrant for her arrest, due to some things in her past.”

Jenna is 5’5″, 115 pounds, with a tattoo that says ‘scotty. j’ on her hand.

If you know who she is with, or where she is staying, or have any information that can help officers locate her, please call 911, 1-800-THE-LOST, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477). You can also use the P3 Tips App on your phone. It is anonymous.​
