Police are looking for the public’s assistance in locating 16-year-old Dallas McLeod from Duncan.

McLeod was last seen in the Greater Victoria area during the week of Aug. 9.

Police from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment have checked and eliminated Island hospitals and commercial businesses where McLeod has been located in the past.

McLeod is described as a white female, 5-foot-1, with long, light brown hair with highlights, and weighs 119 pounds.

She has facial piercings, including nose and septum rings and ear piercings.
