Brooklyn Park police are asking for help finding an 11-year-old girl who has been missing since 3 a.m. Monday.

According to a press release from the department, the 11-year-old was last seen leaving her home on the 8200 block of Queen Avenue on foot. 

Officers discovered "concerning living conditions" and an "uncooperative mother." The department said the two had an argument. The other children were taken into protective custody. 

Police said in a Facebook post the 11-year-old was reported missing from the Norwood neighborhood, which is on the east side of Brooklyn Park. A search of the neighborhood was unsuccessful in locating the 11-year-old.

Police added in the release, "Because of the lack of cooperation we have no other description.  The case remains under investigation."

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said she is 4-foot-10, 80 pounds and has brown eyes and black hair.

Those with information should call 911 or the Brooklyn Park Police Department at 763-493-8222.
