The San Benito Police Department is seeking the public’s help to locate an endangered runaway teenager.
According to an SBPD press release, 15-year-old Alondra Galvan went missing since during the afternoon hours of Monday, July 8.
“Apparently her family fears that she might be in danger because she left some notes behind,” said SBPD Detective Rogelio Banda Jr., who did not reveal what the notes stated. “The family is kind of concerned, and they want to put it out so that way if anybody knows the whereabouts of this young girl they can report it immediately.”
Banda said Galvan was last seen at her house, located on the 1500 block of Combes Street in San Benito. Allegedly, this is the second time that she has run away from home.
“I believe she has done this before,” said Banda. “We have (no leads) at this time. We’ve been knocking at a couple of doors where her friends live, but so far we’ve had negative results. She returned on her own (in a past incident).”
The SBPD encourages anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Galvan to call (956) 361-3880.
