MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa -- Marshalltown police are asking the public to help locate a teen who hasn’t been seen since February.

Seventeen-year-old Jacqueline Hernandez-Cerna was reported missing by her family. She was last seen on February 13th. She left a message for her family saying she was leaving to live with a friend and would contact them after she was settled.

Hernandez-Cerna left with all of her belongings and her 15-month-old baby.
