KPLC is reporting the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a missing Sulphur girl. Dovie Mellard, 17, was reported missing by her family after she failed to return home from a prom function.
According to Mellard's mother she was last seen around 11:20 p.m. Saturday. Mellard had gone to prom and returned home to change to attend the Senior Breakfast with her date. Once there Mellard texted her ex-boyfriend and he picked her up from the breakfast.
Mellard's mother said she last spoke to her at 12:38 a.m. once she realized she was not where she was supposed to be.
The Calcasieu Parish Office of Homeland Security used its "ring down" system to call residents of the Sulphur area asking for their help in locating the missing teen.
She is medium build with blue eyes, short blond hair and was wearing a pink Hollister shirt, jeans and gold slippers.
Anyone knowing her whereabouts is asked to call the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-491-3605.
