As a parent, I've been in those situations where you're at the store with your kids and while you're looking for something, they decide to walk away without saying anything. The sheer panic that washes over you at that moment when you realize they're not standing where you thought they were is one of the worst feelings in the world. So, I can't imagine what the family of 15-year-old Kendall King of Santa Claus, Indiana is feeling right now after their daughter went missing last week.

The Santa Claus Police Department announced on Facebook Saturday night they were currently searching for Kendall after responding to a runaway juvenile call at a home in Christmas Lake Village on Thursday. The Department did not provide details on the last time she had contact with her family.

Kendall is described as 5'1" tall, weighs approximately 120 pounds, and has light brown hair, and blue eyes with fair skin tone.
