WEST NORRITON — West Norriton Police are following several leads from the public as they investigate the disappearance of 20-year-old Yonna Marie Santiago, who is considered endangered.

“We have gotten several leads that we’ve followed up on and it’s a matter of trying to figure out how valid these leads are,” noted Deputy Chief Stephen Morris.

The department is being assisted in the investigation by the Montgomery County Detective Bureau, he added.

“The incident was reported to us by her mother on Aug. 5,” Morris said.

“She was last seen on July 28. She left her residence in West Norriton to go to the 7-11 and never returned.”

He added that Santiago, who has brown eyes, dyed red hair, stands 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds, was wearing a black tank top, jeans, and black Puma sneakers when she was last seen.

She is described as having a tattoo, "Paula," on her left chest.

Her mother said she received a missed call from her daughter's phone at around 11:30 a.m. on July 31, but no message was left. Attempts to ping the phone and locate it were not successful, Morris allowed.

Santiago is also said to suffer from Bi-polar disorder.
