Wind Point Police are searching for a teen who has been missing since Sunday and is now considered a runaway.

Christa Wynne, 16, snuck out of the house for a few hours, but always returned home. This time, things are different, said her mother Anne Wynne.

“She has not reached out to us at all,” Wynne said.

Christa left her parents a note on Sunday saying that she was in a safe place, but she was scared and she would see her when they do, said Wind Point Police Chief David Rossman.

“Honestly, it’s better I don’t stay here,” Christa wrote.

Over the past few months, Christa started using marijuana and has been communicating with people Anne believes are in street gangs. Recently Christa started talking to a 36-year-old man, who goes by Junior. However, it is unclear whether she is with him, Anne said.

At Wind Point’s request, Racine Police searched for Christa at a home in Racine but they were unable to locate the missing girl, Rossman said.

“The parents believe she is hanging around with undesirables in Racine,” Rossman said. Christa is described as being five-foot-five-inches tall, 120 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes, and has both ears pierced. She was last seen wearing a light blue hooded sweatshirt and dark blue shorts.

If anyone sees Christa, please call 911.
