Authorities in Dania Beach are urgently seeking information regarding 15-year-old Lixa Jolette, who was reported missing earlier today. Detectives are calling her "endangered," and the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) is leading the search effort. According to a report from WSVN, Jolette was last seen around 4 a.m. near the 1000 block of Southeast Seventh Street.

Details about her appearance were provided, noting that she stands 6 feet tall, weighs approximately 120 pounds, and has black hair with brown eyes. She was reportedly last seen wearing a black shirt and grey sweatpants. The urgency of the situation is heightened by the fact that Jolette has a health condition which requires her to regularly take medication. To quickly aid in their search, authorities are asking for anyone with information to step forward.

BSO spokeswoman Gerdy St. Louis highlighted the critical nature of finding Jolette due to her medical needs. "Her family told deputies that Jolette has a health condition that requires medication," St. Louis stated in the report by Local 10. The BSO is reaching out to the community to gather any information that could assist in locating the missing teenager.

Anyone who may have seen Lixa Jolette or knows of her whereabouts is strongly encouraged to contact BSO Detective Chris Blankenship at 954-321-4274. Additionally, the BSO non-emergency number, 954-764-HELP (4357), is also available to provide information. The community's help could prove to be critical in ensuring her safe return, as every moment counts when it comes to the welfare of a young person stripped from their daily life and thrust into uncertainty.
