POWHATAN COUNTY, Va. -- Deputies are still trying to find 12-year-old Olivia Grace Green who was last seen Thursday evening at her home in Powhatan County.

"We're very concerned not just because she's a young girl, but also because she does not have access to some of the medications that she takes," Powhatan County Sheriff Brad Nunnally said in a news briefing Saturday evening.

Olivia's sister, who also spoke at the briefing, urged her sister to come home.

"My parents and I want to speak directly to you," she said. "If you're watching this, we know your [unintelligible] feelings right now, but we are not mad at you. We just need you back home safe."

Officials with the Powhatan County Sheriff’s Office said Olivia was last seen at her residence off Jones Creek Drive.

Deputies described Olivia as a white female, 5 ft. tall and weighing 97 pounds. She has blonde hair and hazel eyes.

The girl was last seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt and shorts, according to deputies.

Officials released a photo of Olivia taken at school Thursday showing her wearing Crocs and clothes "she may still be wearing."

"We can't do this alone though, we are going to need the community's help," Nunnally said.

Officials encouraged neighbors to check their properties, doorbell and game cameras.

"Check these cameras, check your properties, look for anything unusual," Nunnally said. "Do not hesitate to call us."

Anyone with information about Olivia's whereabouts is urged to call the Powhatan County Sheriff’s Office at 804-598-5656.
