Update on missing Montgomery girls: A phone call to a parent
One of the two Montgomery County girls missing since last week checked in with a parent Monday, and police believe the two are still together but don't want to come home yet.
The two -- Cheyenne Summer Marcolina, 12, and Anastasia Strong, 14 -- left North Bethesda Middle School Friday morning.
"We know for certain that these girls left by choice," said Lucille Baur, a Montgomery police spokeswoman.
One of the girls contacted a family member by phone on Monday, Baur said. Officers continue to believe no foul play is afoot.
"Our concern for their welfare is based on their ages," she said. "The longer they are away, the more potential there is they could fall into harm's way."
Police have described Cheyenne as “a 12-year-old white female. She is 5’3" tall and weighs 140 pounds. She has long brown hair with blonde highlights. She has brown eyes. Cheyenne was last seen wearing dark blue jeans, silver high-top ‘Chucks,’ a hooded sweatshirt, and a black and red checkered backpack. The backpack had clothing in it. Cheyenne resides in the 4400 hundred of Colefax Street in Kensington.”
They described Anastasia as “a 14-year-old white female. She is 5’2" tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jean shorts and a blue sweatshirt. She may be carrying a black and white backpack. She sometimes wears her hair in a ponytail and also wears a dental retainer. Anastasia resides in the 5800 block of Jarvis Lane in Bethesda.”
Police ask anyone with information about their whereabouts to call 301-279-8000 or 240-773-5400.
