STOCKTON – Stockton Police are searching for a 14-year-old McNair High student who has been reported missing since Friday.
Marija Mikalonis is described as white, between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, 140 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair.
Family members said Makalonis is a freshman at McNair High who has few friends and usually comes straight home after school. The family does not believe she would run away.
She did not come home from school Friday and has not been seen or heard from since, her uncle, Justin Kerlin, said.
Officer Pete Smith said police on Friday did not consider Mikalonis at risk. On Monday, police received information that Mikalonis was seen by a school employee hitchhiking on Eight Mile Road near Highway 99.
“The fact that she was seen engaging in dangerous activity like hitchhiking elevated this to an at-risk case,” Smith said.
Anyone with information on this missing person case can contact Stockton Police at (209) 937-8323 or after hours at (209) 937-8245.
