Jholie Moussa was last seen in the 4200 block of Sonia Court in the Alexandria section of the county near the Woodley Hills community.

Authorities don’t have any evidence to suggest she is in immediate danger and have entered her as a runaway juvenile in the National Crime Information Center database.

Moussa is about 5-foot-2 and weighs around 105 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black coat with a fur collar, a plaid shirt and blue jeans with UGG boots.

Detectives are focusing on cellphone data in their search.

Police said they have spoken to about 20 people recently in contact with Moussa, many of whom are her friends, though officials claim those friends are not fully cooperating.

Police ask anyone who may have information regarding Moussa to contact them at 703-691-2131. You also may contact the FBI Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000 or through the FBI’s tip website.
