GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Deputies are searching for a missing 14-year-old girl Monday night.

McKinzie Locklin was originally reported as a runaway when she left home on Sunview Drive, in Kent County's Gaines Township on Saturday night.

But now, deputies are updating her status to 'missing person.'

McKinzie has brown hair she sometimes wears in a pony tail, and brown eyes. She's about 5'7", and 120 pounds, and was wearing a white tank top, pink shorts, white and purple tennis shoes, and a multi-colored headband when she disappeared.

She was carrying a black East Kentwood backpack.

Deputies say McKinzie has a learning disability and has no cellphone with her.

She has run away in the past, but deputies are concerned because it's now been two days and there's no sign of her.

If you have any information as to her whereabouts, you are urged to call the Kent County Sheriff's Office.
