Police, Fire and volunteers are searching for 15-year-old Shabnam Ahmadyar who has been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic and functions below her age level.
She was last seen walking away from her residence on Chamberlin Circle, near Millner Way at 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
Search and rescue crews are concentrating their search along I-5 and Hood Franklin Road, Saturday. The search is focused on the Hood-Franklin area because she was spotted last night in that vicinity.
Inclement weather is hampering search efforts, but search teams will continue to look for Shabnam, utilizing additional resources, some of which include an Air National Guard Helicopter, U.S. Coast Guard boat crew and search dogs from the California Rescue Association.
Shabnam is described as a Middle Eastern female, 5'5", 125 pounds, with black hair in pony tails and she has brown eyes. She was wearing a gray hooded jacket and matching sweat pants.
She didn't have any identification on her when she left her home, and she doesn't have her medication with her, police said.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Shabnam Ahmadyar is asked to contact Elk Grove Police at 916-691-5246.
