UPDATE (September 3  8:06 p.m.):

Esther Emami has been located unharmed in Baltimore County. 

The Baltimore County Police Department thanks everyone who shared her information on social media.

Original release (September 3  11:28 a.m.):

The Baltimore County Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a 17-year-old girl missing from the Parkville area.

Esther Emami is a white female, 5’04”, 128 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a white shirt, blue jeans, and carrying a black purse.

Emami was last seen at noon on August 30 at her home in the 9600 block of Summit Avenue 21234. She is believed to be in the company of a 21-year-old black male by the name of Cornelius Allen Young 3rd.

Anyone with information on Esther Emami is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.

The Baltimore County Police Department reminds those hitting the road this Labor Day weekend that drinking while driving and distracted driving are dangerous and against the law.

Baltimore County police officers will be assigned to “saturation” details throughout the county from Friday, September 4 through Monday September 7. A saturation detail consists of officers who patrol areas that throughout the year had a high concentration of DWI (Driving While Impaired), and DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offenses.

Anyone driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of .08 or higher is considered legally drunk and will be arrested.

Drivers with a BAC level lower than .08 may be incapable of driving and are subject to arrest. Driving while “buzzed” is dangerous because the driver’s reaction time is impaired. Driving “buzzed” is considered a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense. DUIs are punishable by a fine or possible arrest.

Officers will be on the lookout for aggressive driving, speeding, failure to use a seatbelt and texting or using a handheld cell phone while driving. Drivers can be ticketed and fined for failure to obey the law.

Think before you get behind the wheel. Texting and drunk driving can have deadly consequences.

If you know you will be drinking alcohol, arrange for a designated driver. You’ll save your life and the lives of others.
