WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- Police are asking for the public's help to find a missing 16-year-old girl who is believed to be endangered.
The Prince William County Police Department said Sinahi Aguilar-Cruz voluntarily left her home in the 14600 block of Endsley Turn in Woodbridge at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday.
"Sinahi is believed to be in need of assistance which qualifies her as being endangered," officials posted on Facebook at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday.
Aguilar-Cruz is described as a Hispanic female, 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 125 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. There has been no word on what she was wearing.

Police said the abduction happened at a party in the 14800 block of Danville Road when Roberto Medrano-Segovia got in a verbal altercation with the victim, WDCW reported.
Other people at the party intervened, but Medrano-Segovia is accused of displaying a knife toward witnesses, according to police.
Medrano-Segovia reportedly left the party and came back with “associates,” then got in another argument with the victim.
