UPDATE JULY 27, 2023: Malaya Dorsey, who had been missing since July 21, 2023, has been found.

“She is safe now,” her mother Christine told The B-Town Blog. “Thank you so much for spreading the word. We sincerely appreciate the support from all the community members! PRAISE THE MOST HIGH GOD!”


The Washington State Patrol and Tukwila Police are seeking Malaya Dorsey, a missing 15-year-old girl who was last seen at 1:10 a.m. on July 21, 2023 on 43rd Ave South in Tukwila.

Police say she may be trying to get to Chicago, and a report on Wednesday (which was her 15th birthday) claims she was seen in Burien – once getting off a bus and once near a park.

A friend of the family said they’re worried she may be the victim of trafficking.

Malaya has shoulder-length brown hair with braids, and was wearing a black dress and white coat.

If you have any information please call 9-1-1.
