Family Looking For Missing 18-Year-Old UW Student
SEATTLE, Wash. — The family of an 18-year-old University of Washington student is looking for the teen after she disappeared at about noon on Mar. 5.
Mark Jameson with the Seattle Police Department said the family filed a missing persons report for Marizela Perez at 11:20 a.m. on Sunday. Jameson said there is nothing so far in the woman’s disappearance to indicate foul play. The woman’s family said Perez was last seen in the Rainier Beach area of Seattle on her way to the UW campus. Perez is described as Asian, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 110 pounds, has a thin build and has a “bob” haircut. She was wearing jeans and brown suede boots and may have been wearing green contact lenses. She has a tattoo on her left inner arm with words in Tagalog.
The woman’s family told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that it is out of character for Perez to just disappear.
