The search is still on for 19-year-old Sarah Alarid, who was last seen leaving a New Year's party, according to officials.

Detectives have already searched several locations with the assistance of the Santa Clarita Valley Station Search and Rescue Team and helicopter crews from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Aero Bureau.

Community members also gathered at the Vons grocery store near the intersection of Sand Canyon and Soledad Canyon roads to aid in the search this morning.

Alarid was last seen leaving a friend’s residence on Poppy Meadow Street in Canyon Country between 3:30 and 4 a.m. Jan. 1, according to information released by the Sheriff’s Department Friday.

She left in a 2002 Ford Focus, silver, four-door, with a faded decal of the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon on the left side of the rear window. The car’s California license plate is 4WXE737.

It has not been seen since she left the party.

Alarid was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, ripped blue jeans, a red sweater and a blue and gray plaid sweater. She is 5 feet, 5 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds, and has reddish-brown hair and hazel eyes.

Detectives released detailed information about the missing woman’s identifiable markings, which include tattoos of:

- a gun on her left middle finger.

- a flower on her right middle finger

- a skull on her right shoulder

- three bats on her left calf.

Detectives listed Alarid’s identifiable piercings as:

- two lip piercings

- a tongue piercing

- gauges in both ears.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies scrambled to the area of Whites Canyon Road and Plum Canyon Road on Friday afternoon after receiving reports of a car matching the description of the missing woman’s Ford Focus, but the lead did not pan out, officials said.

Anyone with information about Alarid’s disappearance is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau, Missing Person’s Detail, at (323) 890-5500 or the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station at (661) 255-1121.
