SD - Piper Rio Hyser, 16, Sioux Falls, 2 Sept 2014
The Sioux Falls Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding a missing and endangered Sioux Falls girl.
Piper Rio Hyser, 16, has been missing since Sept. 2. She is believed to be in the company of an unknown male named John, according to the Sioux Falls Police Department.
Hyser is described as 5-foot-6, 125 pounds, blue eyes and brown hair. Anyone with further information on her current location is asked to contact the Sioux Falls Police Department immediately by calling 911.

Hyser says Piper admitted to being out at night for nearly 8 hours drinking with a friend. Officers didn't do anything about the probation violation, and the next day Piper went to school. She told her mother she'd get a ride home with a friend.
"She called me at 3:20 on Tuesday and told me she was here, and I said ok, great, and I hung up and when I got home at six she was gone," Hyser said.
Hyser hasn't heard from her since. A Facebook page was set up to help in the search and has offered some help, but also offered frustrating high school rumors.
A note Hyser's oldest daughter found in Piper's room said "I love you Mom. Don't call the cops," which, right now, is her biggest clue.
"So, I don't think she's doing this because she feels like she's so angry with us or anything, I think more that she's scared that she violated her probation and she was going to be sent somewhere she didn't want to go," Hyser said.
