Arlington County police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing local resident.
Police say Katherine Hawald went missing Thursday afternoon and hasn’t been seen since. She is considered “critically missing” because of a health condition.
Hawald’s brother told ARLnow.com that she is a Yorktown High School and Virginia Tech grad, and a “beloved sister, daughter, and friend.”
She “simply vanished while visiting Lee-Heights shopping center on the early afternoon of November 9,” said Michael Hawald. “No social media or a cell phone, no car, and $100.00 cash.”
