Alvarado stands 5-foot-5, weighs 120 pounds, and has brown eyes, long blonde hair, and a nose ring on the left side of her nose, officers said. She was wearing a tan jacket, blue jeans, and red Timberland boots when she was last seen. Police believe she might be near the Bay Plaza Shopping Center in the Bronx.
