Police want help finding former Waveland Mayor Tommy Longo’s 16-year-old daughter, who was last seen more than two weeks ago.

Raven Longo was last seen Dec. 19 in Waveland, Police Chief David Allen said.

She is 5 feet tall and weighs about 125 pounds.

She was wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, he said.

“Our efforts to find her have been fruitless,” Allen said.

Her school was on its first official day of the Christmas break when she went missing.

“We waited to put anything out until after school started back, thinking she would show up, but she didn’t,” Allen said.

Foul play is not believed to be involved but police are considering her disappearance a runaway issue.

“But usually, runaways turn up before now,” he said.

The former mayor said none of Raven’s friends have seen her.

“She’s missing, and we just want her to be found safe,” he said.

Allen had declined earlier in the day to say if the girl is related to the former mayor.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Waveland Police Department at 228-467-3669 or Hancock County Central Dispatch at 228-255-9191.

Or anyone can provide an anonymous tip on the Crime Stoppers portion of the police department’s home page at www.wavelandpolice.com.
