TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A missing 15-year-old girl is dead after a shooting, according to Toledo Police.

According to TPD, officers received information on Monday that DeAsia Green, a freshman at Start High School, has been shot. Officers found the missing girl dead in an alley in the 1300 block of Page. Police said they are investigating the shooting as a homicide and did not identify any suspects. The circumstances surrounding her death are unclear at this time.

TPD said Green was a “habitual runaway. ” Investigators told 13abc the teen’s parents reported her missing earlier in the month after they realized there was something different about the teen being missing this time. Her parents gave a TPD search team information they had received, which led detectives to the area where Green’s body was found.

Investigators confirmed Tuesday the teen is the daughter of an unsolved homicide victim from 2010, DeAndre Green. 13abc highlighted his case just last year for Case Files. TPD said Tuesday DeAsia’s death has nothing to do with DeAndre’s death.

Those with information can text or call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
