UPDATE: Shortly after noon Sunday, Nicole Chambers contacted FOX 17 and said that her daughter, Kylynn Zavala, had been found safe.


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A 14-year-old girl has not been seen since Halloween night and does not have her medication.

Kylynn Zavala was last seen by her mother, Nicole Chambers, at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 taking a nap in her room. When Chambers went in to check on her at 9:30 p.m, Kylynn was gone.

Kylynn is Hispanic and Caucasian, 5’5″ tall, about 150 lbs, with long wavy brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a burgundy sweater with “Well Spring” written in black on it and Nike high-top shoes in the area of Ontario Avenue Northeast and Knapp Street in Grand Rapids.

Chambers tells FOX 17 she’s very worried; Kylynn has been taking medication for PTSD, anxiety, and depression and didn’t take it with her.

GRPD is currently looking for Kylynn and says though she didn’t make any specific threat before going missing, she has been suicidal in the past. Her phone is currently off and not accepting calls.

Kylynn is prone to violent outbursts, according to the report, so police ask anyone who sees her to call 911 and do not approach.

All other information about her whereabouts can be called into GRPD at 616-456-3400.
