Police are searching for a missing 11-year-old girl who disappeared while walking home from school in South Gate in September.

Edelyne Mariah Madrigal, 11, was last seen on Sept. 27. 

She attended an after-school program, but when her mother went to pick her up around 5:15 p.m., she was nowhere to be found, her family said.

Her family has not heard from her since that day and says she does not have a cell phone.

“I just want her home,” Carol Miranda, Edelyne’s mother, tearfully tells KTLA. “I don’t know if someone’s feeding her. She’s just a kid.”
