Riverbend teen is missing
The Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office is looking for help in locating a 17-year-old Riverbend High School student who has been missing for three weeks.
Raven Tierra Heard was last seen at the school on Sept. 28.
The sheriff’s office does not suspect foul play but wants to locate Raven to confirm that she is safe, Capt. Liz Scott said this morning.
The sheriff’s office is hoping that classmates and friends from Riverbend or elsewhere will provide information on her whereabouts.
Raven is a black female, 5 feet 4 inches tall, 145 pounds and has a light-colored birthmark along her right jaw line. She was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and maroon gym shorts.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 540/582-7115 or Crime Solvers at 540/582-5822.
