The search for two local teens, who had been deemed runaways, has come to an end in similar fashion. Alizza Cruz and Lesly Kimberly Marquez, both 16-years-old, were found safe by law enforcement officials after almost a week of searching.
Cruz, who had reportedly ran away from the Sunny Glenn Children’s Home in San Benito with her two-month-old baby girl on Wednesday, March 25th, was found safe in Pharr with her daughter and the daughter’s father. “We had reports that she might be in South Padre Island as well as reports that she might be somewhere in the Pharr area,” said San Benito Police Chief Martin Morales. “The report of her being in Pharr ended up panning out, she was there safe.” Cruz and her daughter will be transferred back to Sunny Glenn Children’s home as soon as possible.
