Omaha police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing 16-year-old girl.
Madison "Maddy" Pacheco was reported missing Dec. 7 after she left home on her own, said Officer Michael Pecha, a police spokesman.
Madison talked to her friends soon after she left, police said, but she hasn't maintained contact. Detectives believe she may have gone to North Platte.
Family members told the North Platte Telegraph that Madison was last seen shortly after 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at Panera Bread, 177th Street and West Center Road in Omaha.
Madison was described as 5-8 and 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is urged to call the Omaha Police Department at 402-444-5818.
