Two years later, Alycia Mesiti is still missing.

Now with the help of the Carol Sund/Carrington Foundation and a $5,000 reward, Ceres police are hoping the public has clues to the mystery of her disappearance.

Now 16, Alycia was last seen by family members on Aug. 13, 2006. A missing persons report was filed two days later.

After having moved to Ceres from the Bay Area, Alycia reportedly returned to San Jose on August 11, 2006, to spend the weekend with a friend. She telephoned her family on August 13, saying that she had instead gone camping with other friends but would not disclose her location or who she was with. She has not been heard from since.

Authorities have checked her account and seen no activity. Nor has her cell phone been used in the past two years. Ceres Police Department considers her disappearance suspicious.

"We are pretty worried about this little girl," said Ceres Police Sgt. Allen McKay.

Family members say that Alycia's disappearance was out of character for her, although she was experiencing some difficulty in adjusting to the move from the Bay Area.

Alycia is described as a white female. She should be approximately 5-foot-3, 120 to 130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

The Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the return of Alycia Mesiti.

Anyone with information about Alycia are asked to contact Ceres Police Detective Mark Neri at 538-5730.
