Pittsburgh police are searching for a missing 17-year-old girl who they say suffers from depression and has posted information on social media that concerns officers.

Desiree Wade is a resident of Harrisburg who is enrolled at Pittsburgh Job Corps, police said Friday. The teen was last seen Thursday.

She is black, 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. Wade, who has her hair in a ponytail, wears red and black Adidas hi-tops or black knee-high boots, police said.

Anyone who has seen her is asked to call 911 or city police at 412-323-7141.
