SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (KTLA) — The search continues for a teenage girl who has been missing since leaving a New Year’s Eve party in Santa Clarita.

Sarah Alarid, 19, of Canyon Country, left the party around 3 a.m., saying she was going home, according to friends.

She was driving a 2002 silver Ford Focus hatchback, license plate No. 4WXE737.

The party was at a friend’s house on on Poppy Meadow Street in Santa Clarita.

Sarah was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, ripped blue jeans, a red sweater and a blue and gray plaid sweater.

She is 5′ 05″, 110 lbs., has reddish brown hair and hazel eyes.

“We started out putting out flyers and putting out a methodical grid from where she was last seen,” her father, Mike Alarid, said.

“As people are coming in we just keep sending them out to certain locations so we can document and check off where we’ve been.”

“She was with friends,” Mr. Alarid said.

“They’re all helping, they’re all looking for her. She just left the party saying she wanted to come home.”

According to her father, Sarah’s last phone call was at 3:41 a.m.

“That’s not like her,” he said.

“She’s always communicating with someone, whether it’s with us or her friends. We haven’t heard anything from her since that point.”

He said the family plans to start a Facebook page to get the word out, and they’re working on organizing a large search effort this weekend.

Sarah has tattoo of a gun on her left middle finger, a tattoo of a flower on her right middle finger, a tattoo of a skull on her right shoulder, a tattoo of three bats on her left calf, a tattoo of a moon containing the face of the character “Oogie Boogie” from the Nightmare Before Christmas movie on her right calf, under the moon on her right calf is two trees covered in some fog, a tattoo of a red and black sun on her inner left forearm.

She also has two lip piercings, a tongue piercing and ear gauges in both ears.
