Beaverton police are looking for a 16-year-old girl who was reported missing Thursday and is believed to have run away from the home she was visiting.

Brianna Lee O'Grady, who goes by 'Bri,' 16, is visiting the area from Mesa, Ariz. It is believed she ran away from a family friend's house in the 8000 block of Southwest Brightfield Circle sometime before police took a missing persons report at 9:48 p.m. Thursday.

O'Grady is described as a white female with long blond hair, 5-feet, six-inches tall and weighing 85 pounds, as she suffers from anorexia. She was last seen wearing skinny jeans, a sweatshirt, white-and-pink tennis shoes and carrying a black purse. However, she apparently took additional clothing with her.

O'Grady has been listed on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website and is considered endangered because of her anorexia.

The teenager has very little money with her and is unfamiliar with the area, according to police reports. She has no other family or friends in Oregon but may possibly be en route to Seattle. It's unknown if Brianna is in the company of another person.

The Beaverton Police Department is asking the public's assistance in locating O'Grady. Anyone with information is asked to call Beaverton police, 503-629-0111.
