UPDATE, 8:17 p.m. | Reports are the missing girl has been found.

ORIGINAL POST | Tacoma police are looking for an 8-year-old girl who was last seen at Birney Elementary School this afternoon.

Anastasia Scholtka was last seen around 3:30 p.m. at Birney Elementary, located at 1202 S. 76th St. in Tacoma.

Tacoma police say she told her sister she planned to run away because she thought she would be in trouble with her foster mother when she got home from school. She is not familiar with Tacoma, and there is concern for her safety, the police say.

Anastasia is a white female, 4 feet tall, with blond hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a red fuzzy dress and black sandals and carrying a blue, black and white backpack. She may attempt to locate her other siblings who are in foster care in University Place.

Anyone who sees her is asked to call 911.
