LOCKPORT, La. (BRPROUD) – The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public to keep an eye out for a missing teenager.

Somer Strickland, 17, of North Main St. has been missing since Wednesday afternoon.

Strickland “was last seen at her residence at 4 p.m. on August 10, 2022, when her grandmother left the residence,” according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The grandmother returned home two hours later and the teenager was nowhere to be found.

Strickland’s grandmother noticed that a suitcase was taken from the home.

With that in mind, deputies are requesting that everyone between Lockport and Mobile be on the lookout for the 17-year-old.
