WILLMAR — The Willmar Police Department is asking for help in finding Cienna L. Azure-Descheuquet, a 13-year-old missing person who may be headed to Oregon.

Azure-Descheuquet is described as a Native American / Hispanic female with brown eyes and red and brown hair who is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 167 pounds.

She was reported missing Sept. 11 along with two other juvenile females from a girls group home in Willmar, according to Willmar Police Chief Jim Felt.

The girls had run away from the home earlier that day but had been located and returned before running away from the home again.


One of the three girls was found Sept. 12 in St. Cloud , and a second girl was also located in St. Cloud on Sept. 13.

According to Felt, it was believed Azure-Descheuquet was also in St. Cloud and law enforcement was working to find her there.

The Willmar Police Department received information Sept. 22 that someone who had contact with Azure-Descheuquet indicated she was allegedly "on her way to an unknown location in Oregon," according to Felt.

"At this point there is no specific information regarding Cienna being in danger," Felt wrote in an email.

Felt wrote that with the new information about her possibly leaving the state, a crime alert was sent out to help with locating her.

"All indicators are that Cienna still does not want to be located at this time," according to Felt.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Willmar Police Department at 320-235-2244 , case number 21012509.
