Two Silver Spring teenagers are missing tonight, and Montgomery County Police are asking the public's help in locating them. They are each separate missing persons cases.
First, we go to Aspen Hill:
Verenice Soledad Cruz, 16, a resident of the 13500 block of Georgia Avenue, was last seen February 1. She is a Latina female, 5’02” tall, and weighs approximately 120 pounds. Cruz has brown eyes and long, black hair. She was wearing a black leather jacket and blue jeans the last time she was seen. Police say Cruz "frequents" the Aspen Hill Apartments, which are in the same block where she lives, as far as I can tell from the information.
The second missing teen is from the Stonegate area, off of Bonifant Road, near the Intercounty Connector (MD 200):
Martin Curtis Reed disappeared from Carona Court "earlier today," police say. Reed is a white male, 5’9″ inches tall, and weighs about 210 pounds. He has blue eyes and short blonde/brown hair. He was last seen wearing blue sweatpants, a black sweatshirt, and a camouflage vest. He was also carrying a backpack and a black, pool cue-type bag. Reed is walking with one crutch due to a broken left leg that is in a cast. Police say he was involved in a family argument before leaving.
If you have seen, or have information about, either missing teen, police ask you to call their non-emergency number, at 301-279-8000.
