Police and family are asking for the public's help in finding a 16-year-old girl who turned up missing over the weekend.

Captain Kip Judice with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office says Ricki Lynn Boudreaux went missing Saturday after she was punished.

Her mother says she noticed some of Ricki's clothing and personal hygiene items went missing at the same time.

If you have any information as to where she may be, you're urged to call police.
