Endangered missing-persons advisory issued for Everett teen
An endangered missing persons advisory has been issued for Krystal Andrews, 16, of Everett, who police believe ran away from home with intentions of hurting herself. Police ask anyone who sees her to call 911 and not approach her.
Andrews was last seen on May 9, when her father reported her missing from a home on the 9000 block of West Mall Drive. Police say she had recently been released from a hospital that treated her for ongoing mental-health issues.
Her family told the Everett Police Department that she’s made threats to harm herself and is in need of medications that she did not take with her when she left.
Police believe she might be in the Lynnwood or Tulalip area.
She’s described as being 5-foot-3, weighing about 120 pounds. She has black, shoulder-length hair, blue eyes and was last seen wearing a black shirt, black shorts, red shoes and a white Vikings football team hat.
Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly said an Amber Alert had been issued for Krystal Andrews.
