NORTH OGDEN -- Police are looking for a 16-year-old girl who disappeared in North Ogden almost two weeks ago.

Alexis Michele Rasmussen was last seen the night of Sept. 10 at a North Ogden home, where she was baby-sitting. Earlier that evening, at 10:30 p.m., she was also seen at a Layton Walgreens, 1171 W. 2000 North.

Her mother, Dawn Miera, said she called and texted her daughter about 11:30 p.m. to tell her she could stay the night at the home. But when she came to the home the next morning to pick her up, Rasmussen was not there.

The teenager ran away from home last year, but she told her family that she was running away and returned within a few days.

"When she ran away, I knew where she was. This is a totally different situation. She literally has not contacted me at all," Miera said.

Miera has been trying to call and track her daughter's cell phone, but it has been dead since she disappeared, Miera said.

She does not have a car or a driver's license. She reportedly left the home on foot, police say.

Police have no reason to suspect the residents of the home, said North Ogden Detective Paul Rhoades.

Rasmussen's friends do not know where she is either, Miera said. Fliers have gone up around Weber High School, where she attends classes.

Rasmussen and her mother had been arguing before she disappeared, but Miera wants her daughter to know that they can put that behind them.

"We love her, and anything can be fixed, anything. I just want her to know that she can come home," Miera said.

Rasmussen is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 117 pounds. She has blonde hair and green eyes. She has a piercing on her right upper lip, left lower lip and right eyebrow.

Anyone with information can call Weber Consolidated Dispatch at 801-629-8221.

Police are actively investigating the case and following any leads, Rhoades said. The teen's family has also created a Facebook page titled "Bring Alexis Home," to post information about their missing loved one.
