The Renton Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating Kathy M. Chou, 19, who was last seen at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 18, and last heard from at about 9:30 the same night.

The police department supplied the following description.

Chou is an Asian female, approximately 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds. She has black hair with blonde streaks and blue bangs and a piercing in her bottom right lip. She usually wears a pair of pink rimmed glasses, and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a horizontally striped, multicolored shirt. She does not have any physical disabilities.

A high school senior, she has no history of running away or missing school.

It is extremely unlike Chou to be out of contact, and family and friends have been unable to contact her since Sunday, according to police. She was last known to be in the area of south Renton and Southcenter.

Anyone who has seen Chou since 7 p.m. on Sunday night or knows of her whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1, contact the Renton Police Department at 425-430-7500, or contact Detective Keith Hansen at 425-430-7526.
