Kent Police seek help to find missing 16-year-old girl

Last seen on Feb. 12

A 16-year-old girl remains missing from the West Hill area of Kent.

Asia Wilbon has been missing since Feb. 12, according to a Tuesday email from Kent Police Cmdr. Robert Hollis. She recently moved to Kent from out of state. She may be upset because of her mother’s death, Hollis said.

Wilbon is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds. She was last seen wearing a dark jacket with jeans or dark pants.

Some local businesses have put up her missing flier in their windows as police and relatives try to find Wilbon.

If anyone has any information on where Wilbon might be or has seen her, please call the Kent Police Department non-emergency line at 253-856-2121 or dial 911. Please reference case number 20-2105.
