CrimeStoppers and Honolulu police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing teen who is considered to be in danger.
Jessica Rothstein, 16, was last seen on the outskirts of Waikiki and reported as a juvenile runaway in February 2017.
She is 5 feet 3 inches, 105 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
CrimeStoppers Honolulu Coordinator Sgt. Chris Kim said Rothstein’s case is being highlighted because the Missing Child Center Hawaii has reason to believe her safety is in jeopardy. Further details were not available for confidentiality reasons.
CrimeStoppers’ bulletin on Rothstein is the result of a new partnership between CrimeStoppers and the Missing Child Center, a unit within the state Attorney General’s Office. The two organizations are collaborating to reunite missing children with their families and prevent those children from falling into the sex trafficking trade.
Kim said CrimeStoppers and the Missing Child Center plan to highlight additional at-risk and missing children.
More information on Missing Child Center Hawaii and the state’s missing-children database can be found here.
Anyone with information on Rothstein’s whereabouts is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or send anonymous tips through the CrimeStoppers website or via the P3 Tips app.
