SNOHOMISH, Washington – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is looking for help from the public to locate 14 year-old Elizabeth Harwood who went missing today. Harwood left her home at the 500 block of D Ave around noon, indicating that she would ride her bike to a friend’s house.  She did not arrive at that destination.

Family members searched for her for three hours and then called to report Harwood missing.  Snohomish Police Department conducted an area search.  After several hours of unsuccessful searching the Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Unit was called in.  So far, authorities have no leads as to where Harwood might be or where she went after leaving home.

Harwood has a developmental disability and reportedly has the mental capacity of a younger child.  She was seen leaving her house wearing a yellow green and blue striped t-shirt with khaki pants riding a white bike with peace sign stickers.  Harwood is 5’6”, 215 lbs. with brown hair and shoulder-length brown, curly hair.  

Anyone with information about Harwood is asked to call 911 immediately.
