A teen girl with a limited mental capacity has gone missing from the South Side, police said.

Jasmine Baez, 16, was last seen about 1 p.m. on Oct. 14 near the intersection of East 91st Street and South Commercial Avenue, according to a missing person alert issued by police. She lives in the 8800 block of South Houston Avenue.

Baez was described as a black girl, standing 5-feet and weighing 100 pounds. She has brown eyes, braided black hair and a medium complexion. She requires glasses, but was not wearing them when she went missing, police said. Her right eye also "appears droopy."

She was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and black gym shoes. She also wore a brown and white jacket with a square pattern on it, police said.

Baez "has the mental capacity of a third grader" and attends South Shore International College Prep School, but did not show up for class on Tuesday, police said.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call police at (312) 747-8274.
