After dismissal from the school, police said, Smith went to an area off McClure Avenue east of O'Plaine. There, she apparently entered a dark-colored, mid-sized car.

Police said the last time Smith was spotted, she was wearing black shorts with white stripes on the legs and a dark-blue tank top. Smith is 5 feet 7 inches, 225 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

Police Cmdr. Saundra Campbell said girl has not been in contact with her family for the past week.

"We have been using all of the social media sites that she, like most teenagers, was active in and following up on leads," Campbell said. "We have exhausted those leads now and are requesting the public's assistance."

Anyone with information on Smith's whereabouts is asked to call police at (847) 599-7000.
