Family and friends of missing 14-year-old Yashawnee Laface Vaughn are desperately working to raise awareness of the girl's case, holding a 2 p.m. rally today at NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Killingsworth Streets, and waging a Facebook campaign to bring her home.
She is 5'2', African American and weighs about 115lbs. Her hair is usually shoulder length and she has a "bold bright smile," her family says.
She was last seen Saturday, March 19, getting onto a TriMet bus headed for Vancouver to visit a relative, wearing yellow sweats, navy blue converse, and a black leather jacket.
Yashawnee spoke on a cellphone with her mother between 5 and 7 p.m. last Saturday evening from a Taco Bell restaurant in the 82nd Avenue MAX train area.
Family members say her last call was at 7:56 p.m. Saturday night according to a call log. If you have seen her or have any information, the family asks you to call 503 774-5212.
