The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a missing girl. Authorities say that 13-year-old Valentina Lacava, of Greenwood, was reported missing about 1 a.m. Friday. Investigators believe she may have runaway.

Lacava is a slender, white female. She is 5-feet 1-inch tall, and weighs about 110 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. She was wearing dark jeans and a zip-up sweatshirt, possibly a hoodie, and black sneakers.

A few hours earlier, at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, a Greenwood man reported seeing a young girl matching this description get into an old, dirty, two-door Honda Civic with damage to its front bumper at the intersection of Watson Road and Possum Hollow Road, the same neighborhood the girl was reported missing.
