UNDATED (WHTC) -- While Portage police are looking for a missing teen a Leighton Township teen confused the situation by posting a prank message on Facebook saying the girl was at his house. Portage Police contacted the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department asking that they go to an address on Round Lake Drive in Leighton Township. Deputies went to the address and searched the house and outbuildings but found nothing. Authorities say 16-year-old Marissa Barry was last seen leaving her home along Osterhout Avenue Thursday afternoon. Family members who reported her missing told police the teen had not been taking her medications for depression and anxiety disorder.
