Two of three sisters missing since Friday have been found, but the oldest one -- a 16-year-old who is pregnant -- remains missing, according to police.

Still missing is Joyce Lubrin, 16, who was wearing a white tank top, blue hooded sweat shirt and a gray jacket. She is 7½ months pregnant and mentally disabled, according to police.

She is 4 feet 11, 120 pounds with brown hair and eyes. Police describe her as a chronic runaway.

The sisters went missing Friday. None of the them had money or cellphones, police told Times Community News.

During the some 30 hours that the three girls were missing, they reportedly hung out at a mall and on the streets until going to a friend's home, police said.

The younger sisters were found after their friend's mother saw a TV news report on the girls' disappearance and called police.

Anyone with information about Joyce Lubrin's whereabouts should call Glendale police at (818) 548-4911.
