Police in Newark are searching for a girl who was reported missing earlier this month.

According to police, on May 2, Jamiyah Johnson was reported missing from the YMCA program located at 600 Broad Street in Newark. 

Police said that this juvenile was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, blue pants, black slippers and a pink bonnet. 

According to police officials, Jamiyah currently has a nose ring and two tattoos which are located on her chest and left arm. Jamiyah may also have long box braids.

This juvenile is a frequent runaway and may be in the area of 134 Park Place, located in Irvington. She also has family in the Newark and Jersey City areas.
