Family searching for missing 16-year-old

Two Marshalltown parents are looking for help in locating their daughter, Teddi Wagner, 16, who has been missing for one week.

Wagner, who has medical conditions that need to be addressed, was last seen in the area of JBS last Monday.

She is the daughter of Julie and Randy Wagner. Julie Wagner said Teddi has spent time in a psychiatric facility, Orchard Place in Des Moines, and ran away from home before.

“This is the longest she’s ever been gone,” Julie Wagner said.

Wagner is 5-foot-6 and 128 pounds. She has blue-green eyes and brown hair, though it might be dyed a different color.

Her mother said Teddi has an impulse to run away and also believes someone is hiding her.

“We are frantic,” Julie Wagner said.

Marshalltown Police Chief Mike Tupper said since Teddi has a history of running away, they don’t have any reason to believe she’s been abducted. Police will continue to search for her.

“We are investigating and checking every known location that we’ve found her before or people she is known to associate with,” Tupper said. “People with any information are asked to give us a call.”

Those with any information can call Marshalltown Police at 641-754-5725.
