A teen girl who's been missing for almost a year may be in our area, and police believe she's in danger.

Waco police say they have reason to believe 17-year-old Yessenia Almanza may be in the North Waco area. Yessenia has brown hair and brown eyes, stands around 5'1", and weighs around 170lbs. She's been missing since October 14, 2016.

Although she went missing from Waco, police believed she might be in Dallas. Now they suspect she is in the Central Texas area, so keep your eyes peeled.

In one of the photos above, Yessenia is in the company of an unidentified male whom police would also like to speak with.

If you recognize Yessenia or have any information that may help police find her, please contact Waco police at (254) 750-7500 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.

Please share this story so we can get Yessenia back to her family safe and sound.
