    Massachusetts State Police along with Sunderland Police are searching for a teenage girl who ran away from home early Friday morning.

    According to necn-affiliate WWLP, officers were called to the teenager's mother's apartment around 5 a.m. for a well-being check.

    Once police arrived at the apartment, one of the adults began arguing with an officer and eventually assaulted the officer.

    Police arrested the woman and called DCF to take custody of the other four children who were home.

    Then the teenager, a 17-year-old girl, jumped out the window and started running.

    Sunderland Police alerted the Massachusetts State Police who have been searching for the girl with the help of helicopters and police dogs.

    The girl is described as a thin black girl, with the sides of her head shaved, between 5'4'' and 5'7''.

    Officers are focusing on the area of Bull Hill Road and Clark Mountain where the girl's phone last had a signal.

    The phone is now shut off.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
