Officers in St. Joseph, MO need your help locating a 15 year old girl
missing from their area. Ashley Renee Martinez is 5 foot 3 inches
tall and weighs 110 lbs. She has sandy brown hair and blue eyes.
She has a scar on her left arm. Ashley was last seen on July
6, 2004. Some leads indicate that she could be in the company
of an adult male. They may be traveling in a gray 1995 Pontiac
Bonneville with Missouri plates 377MPY.
If you see her, please call the National Center for Missing and Exploited
Children at 1-800-the-lost. That's 1-800-843-5678.
This case is currently being worked as an endangered runaway.
We understand that being called a runaway leads people to think that
young people voluntarily leave on their own. That is not always
true. When an adult as the ability to talk a child into leaving
their home and going with them, there is a problem somewhere.
We need to find that answer.
