Update: Missing Teen Found Safe

Update: Missing girl found safe.
Deputies are asking for the public’s help in locating a 17-year-old East Naples girl who was last seen by her family Sunday.

Family members reported Vanezza Damaso missing Monday after she failed to return home from a friend’s house Sunday night.

Deputies say family members last saw Vanezza at their residence on Normandy Drive around 9 a.m. Sunday as she left to go visit a friend.

A family member went to the friend’s house in the 4000 block of Mohawk Place around 7:30 p.m. and was told the girl was in the shower and would be home later.

Vanezza never came home and the family reported her missing.

Deputies said the girl is described as white, 5 feet 6 inches and 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a blue shirt and dark denim pants.

Vanezza functions at an 11-year-old level and her family is concerned for her well being.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 239.252.9300.
