A missing Helena girl was last seen at the Alabaster Walmart and police are currently looking for a vehicle in connection with the disappearance according the girl’s sister.

Deanna Niven, 16, was last seen Sunday evening when she went to the Alabaster Walmart to have some pictures developed.

Stephanie Niven, Deanna’s sister, said Deanna left for Walmart around 6:30 p.m., and the family began searching for her sister two hours later when they could not contact her.

Upon arriving at Walmart, family discovered Deanna’s van with her cell phone inside.

Stephanie said it would be completely out of character for her sister to just disappear without calling.

She also said there is reason to believe Deanna could have left in an older model silver Dodge Caravan.

Information from the Alabaster Police Department has not been made available.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Alabaster Police Department at 663-7401.
