MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Officials with Milwaukee Police's Sensitive Crimes Division have confirmed with FOX6 News they are seeking two critically missing young girls.

Officials are looking for 11-year-old Kiara Miller and her 13-year-old friend, Sanaria Norwood.

According to police, at around 4:00 Saturday, July 27th, Miller asked permission to meet up with Norwood -- asking to meet up with her at Washington Park.

At 6:00 p.m., the girls returned to check in with an adult, at which time they asked to return to the park.

The adult told Miller her curfew is 8:00 -- and the girls left on foot for the park.

At 8:00, the adult was at home, waiting for the girls to come home. When they didn't show up, police say the adult noticed Miller had deleted Norwood's contact information from her phone, so the adult was unable to contact Norwood's mother.

Eventually, the adult attained a car and checked the Washington Park area, but was not able to locate the girls.

Early Sunday morning, the girls were reported missing to police.

Miller is described as 5'1 tall, weighing 145 pounds with curly shoulder-length black hair. She is a sixth-grader at Waukesha Middle School.

Miller was said to have been wearing a pink Abercrombie sweatshirt with blue pants.

Norwood is described as 5'1 tall, weighing 90 pounds with short, curly black hair with blond highlighted tips. Her nickname is "Ri-Ri."

Norwood is an eighth-grader at Roosevelt Middle School, and was last seen wearing pink and white pajama pants, a purple tank top and purple "Gucci" sweatshirt.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact MPD at (414) 935-7405.
