Original story, March 2, 2:11 p.m. The Berkeley Police Department is asking for the community’s help in locating a runaway girl, 17-year-old Luciana Castle, of Berkeley.

Castle was last seen Feb. 16, according to an alert issued by BPD on Thursday afternoon, and she last spoke with her family by phone Feb. 18.

Castle is described as a white female with brown hair and brown eyes, 5 feet 6 and 125 pounds.
