RALEIGH, N.C. -

Police are still searching for a Raleigh teen who has not been seen by family members since Dec. 26.

Despite efforts by both her family and the police, the whereabouts of 15-year-old Kenyetta Clark have not yet been determined.

Raleigh Police say Clark was reported missing Dec. 26 and that foul play is not known to be involved in the teen's disappearance. Police say it is believed that Clark may have remained in the Triangle area.

The Raleigh Police put out a release on the matter Tuesday and Clark was still missing as of Wednesday afternoon.

Her mother is pleading for help, saying the teen's cellphone has been turned off and her Facebook account was deleted.

"Just call. I just need to hear her voice and make sure she's OK," Valerie Tate said, crying. "I just need to know that she's OK. I just need to know that she's OK. 

"I've exhausted everything that I know how to do and I just don't know what to do anymore."

Clark is described as a black female who stands about 5 feet 1 inches tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

Anyone who believes they may know Clarks's present location or who has other information that might assist efforts to locate her is asked to call the police tip line at (919) 834-HELP.
