GARLAND, Texas -- Police have asked for the public's help in looking for 12-year-old Adrienne Solorzano, who disappeared from Brandenburg Middle School around 11 a.m. Thursday.
Authorities said the seventh grader was initially reported as a runaway, but now say this is not a typical runaway case.
Adrienne's father was called to the school at 626 Nickens Road on Thursday to meet with one of her teachers about her grades. The girl was asked to leave her class to join the meeting, but she never showed up.
Adrienne has not been heard from or seen since leaving the classroom.
The girl's family and friends said the behavior is out of character for Adrienne, who they describe as quiet and polite, and does well in school.
The school sent a letter home to parents Friday explaining the situation, and in it said Garland police visited Adrienne's classes requesting information and help from the girl's classmates.
"The safety of students and staff at Brandenburg is paramount," the letter read. "Please help us reinforce this message. Talk to your child this evening about the importance of sharing any action they may experience or witness that impacts the security of our campus."
Anyone with information about Adrienne is urged to contact Garland police immediately at 972-485-4840.
