INITIAL REPORT: A missing teenage girl from Idaho, believed to have run away from home, may have resurfaced recently in the Rogue Valley, according to the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office (TFCSO).

16-year-old Aaliyah Marie Arambula is thought to have left her Kimberly, Idaho home in the early hours of April 16. Her mother reported her missing at 4:30 a.m. after finding a note left by Arambula.

"Deputies state Aaliyah’s phone has shown activity in Meridian, Idaho since then, and today near Medford, Oregon," TFCSO said in a statement.

Arambula is described as being 5’5” tall, 110 lbs, with hazel eyes and naturally brown hair — however, her mother says that Arambula colors her hair often, and it was pink and orange the last time she saw her.
