Joplin police were seeking assistance Monday in locating a 16-year-old girl who has been missing since Sunday morning.

Gwen Marie Stanley has not been seen since about 10:30 a.m. Sunday as she left Christ’s Community United Methodist Church at 2700 E. 44th St., police said.

The Joplin girl is described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall and 125 pounds, with red hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a black jacket, blue sweater, black pants and tennis shoes. Police said the girl was being treated as an endangered person because of the cold weather and because she has never previously been missing for more than 24 hours.
