Police In Search of Missing 14-Year-Old, Last Seen at UDHS

Destiny Chase-Shim has not been seen since Friday.

Philadelphia Police are searching for Destiny Chase-Shim, 14, who was last seen on Friday entering Upper Dublin High School.

According to a story on MyFoxPhilly.com, Shim was dropped off by her father at Upper Dublin High School on just before 10 a.m. Friday. She was reportedly seen with friends that morning.

Chase-Shim lives in Upper Dublin with her mother. Her father lives in the Harrowgate section of Philadelphia, according to the story.

"Her family said she was last seen wearing navy blue sweat pants and blue and white Nike sneakers with a brown waist-length coat," said Fox 29. "She was seen carrying a pink book bag."

Chase-Shim is described as being 5'5" tall and weighing around 120 pounds with brown eyes and sandy brown shoulder length hair.

If you know anything about the missing teen, please call the Philadelphia Police Department by dialing 9-1-1.

Editor's Note: The story has been updated to reflect an updated version of the MyFoxPhilly.com - Chase-Shim is an Upper Dublin resident.

she's with one of her boyfriends. He told her he loved her and how beutifful she is to him!!!!

Donald, I don't think anyone is chastising her. They are just stating that, if she was dropped off late, like the father says...........it would be nice to see proof, maybe from her signing in at the office. They do have security cameras in the High School, so I am sure they know whether she did enter the school, who she was with and so on. Prayers she is found safe.

It sounds as if someone who KNOWS (family member?) the facts should go to the media and police and get it on Facebook so public can help and Yes there should be an Amber Alert, someone really dropped the ball and it is apparently up to the general public. Time is of utmost importance!! Side note-- she is described as having sandy brown hair. Her pic does not indicate that.

I see they just changed the story. Now it makes more sense. Thank you

Story has to be wrong Upper Dublin high school was out at 9am on Friday for mid-terms either way she is still missing! And I haven't seen anything on the news it sickens me. Please find this girl!

I think that you have made a very callous statement, considering that a young girl is missing. Not only is reading fundamental, spelling is, too.
msv January 28, 2013 at 04:48 PM
Well my nephews said she got off the school bus in north hills with the rest of the kids at 9:30am Said she was fine she was chilling, she was her normal self.

Prayers for your family! Please ignore all rude comments on here, the only thing we need to know is she is missing and I pray for her safe return!!
anonymous January 28, 2013 at 05:25 PM
I've been told that she is okay but I was not allowed to receive further info but she is okay
Meghan January 28, 2013 at 05:41 PM
soooo you're saying that she LIVES in Philadelphia, but goes to Upper Dublin? Pretty sure that's not legal.

@ms. Pink all he said was he talked to her after they got off the bus because she was walking on walnut towards Chelsea, and asked where was she going and she said she don't know.
Kyree Quinn January 28, 2013 at 09:44 PM
Today a girl named Hannah said she got a txt from her Sunday night. She wouldn't tell anybody about it
msv January 28, 2013 at 09:54 PM
Well she made contact with friends. So shes OK.
Jenny January 28, 2013 at 09:54 PM
That's ok, all of these people that aren't saying anything about her location will go to jail. Good luck to those scummy people that have talked to her and write anonymously on this page. You make everyone sick. Hope this girl is found
Karen Hamilton January 28, 2013 at 09:58 PM
If you are Destiny friend ,Please contact her mother about where she is. If anything happens to her you will have nobody to blame but yourself for not contacting her parents or family members.
Karen Hamilton January 28, 2013 at 09:59 PM
She needs to make contact with her mother,to let her know she is safe.
Karen Hamilton January 28, 2013 at 10:03 PM
I agree ,if you are a friend and know where Destiny is you need to contact her parents.do the right thing, call them and leave the information .
Hannah Lynn January 28, 2013 at 11:37 PM
Kyree, I did tell the police, and I stayed after school and talked to the detective. So i think you should learn the info before accusing people.
Hannah Lynn January 28, 2013 at 11:39 PM
Btw. People have talked to her..but she wont tell anyone where she is. So i suggust you learn all the info before telling people they will be going to jail etc The people that know anything actually have been talking to the police
Cindy January 29, 2013 at 12:42 AM
Now im assuming Destiny wasnt late to school becus the bus dropped her off in front of the school with the rest of the kids on time. Now y was the father dropping her off a second time at ten?
SR71 January 29, 2013 at 01:16 AM
I find it weird that she was dropped off a little before 10 when we only had 1 midterm and was leaving by 9:15 ish. So either with with friends somewhere or just bounced. This is my opinion.
USA-pa January 29, 2013 at 02:18 PM
Just keep the family in prayer.......theirs nothing for everyone to figure out. That why that have police and detectives to do that job... It's obvious that she's a run a way........now everyone can get back to their own life with their own family problems ...(cause I'm sure everyone over 18 have many)
