The Chandler Police Department is looking for missing 16-year-old Melissa Sajn.

Sajn reportedly never came home from school Wednesday night. Mesa police also located her personal belongings at Pioneer Park, which is near her Mesa school.

Sajn typically takes the light rail to and from school. It’s unclear if she was on the light rail yesterday after school or not, police say.

Police said there is no indication that she was kidnapped or injured in any way, but police are concerned because her belongings were found in a park.

Sajn is described as five-foot eight-inches tall and has a medium build. She has brown hair and eyes. She has been entered into a national database as missing and endangered.

If anyone sees Melissa, you’re asked to call 911 immediately.
