A 14-year-old girl reported missing Wednesday was reportedly found Friday behind the Ralph’s grocery store on Orchard Village Road.
Rachel Sarah Hargrove, a 14-year-old Valencia High School student who lives in Canyon Country, was last seen when she was dropped off at summer school at Saugus High School, her sister said Friday.
Friends reported seeing Rachel on Wednesday at the Westfield Valencia Town Center, said her sister Ashley, who lives in Acton, said Friday. That was the last time anyone they’ve contacted had seen her.
“She went missing Wednesday night,” Ashley said. “None of her friends have contacted her, there’s been no contact between us. No one’s actually talked to her, we’ve had people tell us they’ve seen her.”
A group of people are getting together at the Sears Parking lot at 7 p.m. in the Westfield Valencia Town Center to look for Rachel.
Sheriff’s Station officials do not believe foul play to be involved, but family members are concerned.
The missing person report was made at 3:45 a.m., according to Sheriff’s Station officials.
“She was in her PE clothes,” Ashley said. “She was supposed to go out with her boyfriend, but never ended up going out and she left her bag at school.”
Rachel was dropped off at school at 9 a.m., and that was the last that family members had seen her
