ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Officials are asking for help finding a woman missing from an Alexandria group home for people with developmental disabilities.

Lauren Taylor, 21, was last seen Tuesday night. She is described as about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds with blue eyes and curly red hair. She listens to her iPod, chews her fingernails and may be with a young Spanish male, officials say.

This is the third time Taylor has been reported missing. She was reported missing from her parents Alexandria home in September 2010 and was found unharmed two days later. She was also reported missing in February from the same group home. She was found safe two weeks later.

Her group home is in the 8000 block of West Boulevard in Alexandria.

Fairfax County police do not think she is in any danger. She reportedly does have a cell phone with her.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 703-246-7857 or 703-246-7526.
