MONTEBELLO — Police asked the public’s help Thursday in finding a 14-year-old Montebello girl who ran away with a male companion.
Rosemary Sandoval was last seen walking in the 300 block of Poplar Avenue between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, Montebello police Sgt. Mike Flores said in a written statement.
She suffers from a medical condition that requires her to take prescription medication, police added.
Police believe Sandoval may be with a friend identified as “Jose Sandoval,” though that may not be his true name, Flores said.
“In the past few days, Rosemary has been in contact with her family via ‘Facebook’ and cell phone, indicating that she is well and does not wish to come home,” the sergeant said.
“At this time, there is no indication of foul play, however, because of her medical condition and age, her family is concerned for her welfare.”
Sandoval is described as Latina, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. She has tattoos reading “Perfect” and “FML” on her left forearm.
Anyone with information is asked to call Montebello police at 323-887-1313, or 911.
