***UPDATE Sunday December 28 2:00am. Cassie Hulscher has been found safe thanks to your tips! Cassie's mother sent a message that she had been located. "She will be in custody, but at least she is safe and we know where she is!!! Thank you so much for your help. You're an angel"***


Several friends have been sharing the photo below of 17-year old Cassandra Jo Hulscher of Sioux Falls who has been missing since December 11th.


In talking to her mom and a family friend, they have let me know that Cassie was driving a vehicle that was later found abandoned in the Shopko parking lot on W. 41st Street. The family also knows she was seen at the Taco Bell at 41st and West Avenue in Sioux Falls on December 20th. Other than that, no one has seen Cassie or heard from her.

Cassie is described as 5'8", 115 pounds, fair skin, with sandy brown hair, and a three inch scar on the back of her right arm. She also has a one inch scar near her elbow. She often wears her hair pinned up on top of her head and is believed to have a black and white checkered cloth backpack with her along with about $1000 cash.

On Christmas Day, the family received two tips that said she may be on a reservation in the Wagner, South Dakota area, though that is unconfirmed.

If you have any information on Cassie's whereabouts, please contact her mother, Denise Hulscher, at 605-868-1522.
