The Sacramento Police Department continues to search for missing Natomas teen 14-year-old Nicholette Garner.

“There were no family disagreements before she left,” mother Shirlene Garner told THE NATOMAS BUZZ. “We had a really good weekend with our daughter.”

On Monday, Oct. 15 at about 12:52 a.m., police officers responded to Garner’s home when her family reported her missing. The teen had not been seen since about 10 p.m. the night before when she reportedly crawled out her bedroom window.

“Nikki” is 5-feet 10-inches tall and 175 pounds. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing a purple shirt with stripes, dark blue jeans and flip flops walking south on Pony Express Drive towards San Juan Road.

Garner may have been carrying a small duffle bag. Her phone has reportedly been turned off since an hour after Garner left her home.

Officers have contacted friends and family members in the Sacramento area and in other parts of California, but Garner has not been located. She’s a student at West Sacramento Early College Prep Charter School.

According to Garner’s mother, the teen is considered “at risk” and has never run away from home before.

“A security camera showed a couple of cars driving south on Pony Express very close to when she left,” Garner’s mother said “She was alone until out of the camera’s reach. I know someone has some kind of news, any information is something.”

The Sacramento Police Dept. urges anyone with information pertaining to Garner’s whereabouts to contact the Police Department’s Non-Emergency number at (916) 264-5471, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
