When officers went out to the 200 block of Jeffery Drive around 9:50 a.m. Thursday morning, Jerniesha's mother told them the teenager was missing and that she was concerned for her daughter's safety because she feels her daughter may cause harm to herself.

Jerniesha is described as a black female, about 5'5" to 5'7" 140 pounds. She has black and brown curly hair and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a pink shirt.

If you know where Jerniesha may be, call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS.
