The Carbondale Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a missing teenager.

Officers say 19-year-old Mandy Pope was last seen on Monday at around 7 a.m. in the 400 block of South Illinois Avenue.

She was supposed to take the train to Kankakee for the day but was not on the train when it arrived back in Carbondale that evening.

Pope is described as a white female, 4'11 tall , weighing 135 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink dress. Pope has a condition that potentially places her in danger.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Carbondale Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (618) 549-COPS.
