Pregnant 16-Year-Old Missing; Sisters Found Safe

The girl and her sisters were believed to have run away. Her sisters were found at a friend's house

Police put out a critical missing bulletin Saturday for a pregnant 16-year-old with mental disorders and impairments.

Jocye Lubrin, 16, did not have money or cell phones, police said. She was 7 1/2 months pregnant and was described as mentally disabled and suffering from depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, according to the Glendale Police Department.

She reportedly ran away from home with her two sisters, who were found safe Saturday night at a friend's house after the friend's mother recognized them from news reports.

The girls were living with their grandmother, and their mother was restricted from seeing them, said Glendale police Sgt. Tom Lorenz, a department spokesman.

Jocye was last seen Friday. The girls each left separately over the course of the day, he said.

Jocye had run away before. Her sisters hadn't, he said.

The girls frequented the Glendale Galleria and Americana shopping malls. They often visited the Apple store to use the display computers to communicate with friends, Lorenz said.
