A Gaithersburg High School student has been missing for more than three weeks, according to police and the school’s principal.

Eimy Henriquez, 16, was last seen at approximately 9 p.m. on Dec. 13 as she left her home on Trafalgar Square, according to Officer Rick Goodale, a police spokesman. Police announced her disappearance to the public five days later, on Dec. 18.

Goodale said Thursday afternoon that police did not have any new information about Henriquez’s disappearance or whereabouts. He said police “have no reason to believe” Henriquez is in danger. Police had no additional information Friday morning.

Gaithersburg High School Principal Cary Dimmick posted on Twitter on Thursday afternoon that Henriquez is a student at the school and remains missing. Neither he nor MCPS spokespeople could be reached for comment Thursday afternoon.
