The Lafayette Sheriff's Office needs residents in the Baton Rouge area to be on the lookout for a teen who has been missing since April 30, 2012.

Keiosha Felix, a 15-year-old girl from Duson, LA has been missing since April 30, 2012 and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is asking for the public's help in locating her.
