Durango Police Department is searching for a 15-year-old girl who was reported missing Monday afternoon.

According to a Missing Indigenous Person Alert, DeVaughn Alonzo was last seen outside Durango High School at 3 p.m. Monday. Durango Police Department Detective Deondre Ball said foul play is not suspected and that it is likely a runaway scenario.

“The most credible information we have right now is that she's down in Farmington,” Ball said.

Ball said Alonzo has a history of running away. Law enforcement expects she is commuting by vehicle or hitch hiking to the Farmington-Kirtland area.

“No one has given us reports of a vehicle thus far,” Ball said.

He said Alonzo is relatively new to Durango and from the Farmington area near Kirtland.

“We assume that she was going to try to get back home somewhere near Kirtland,” Ball said.

DPD has been working in collaboration with Farmington law enforcement agencies to see if she’s been spotted in a vehicle.

She was last seen wearing a black hoodie, gray shirt, black sweatpants, black and white Converse shoes, and a blue backpack. If seen, call 911 or the Durango Police Department at (970) 764-7032.
