Missing girl, 12, is found safe
A 12-year-old Montgomery County girl missing since last week was found safe Thursday evening in the District, according to police.
Still missing is the girl’s 14-year-old friend, who wasn’t with her. The pair left North Bethesda Middle School on their own volition last Friday.
No details were available about exactly where or how the 12-year-old, Cheyenne Summer Marcolina, of Kensington, was found. She had made contact with her family several days ago, but wasn’t willing to come home at the time, police said.
Her friend, Anastasia Strong, of Bethesda, is described as white, 5’2” tall, with brown hair and blue eyes. She weighs about 120 pounds. She sometimes wears her hair in a ponytail and also wears a dental retainer. Anastasia has been known to frequent Westfield Wheaton and Westfield Montgomery shopping centers, as well as to travel to the District.
There continues to be no evidence of foul play in connection to Anastasia's missing status, officials said, but police and family are concerned for her welfare due to her young age.
Anyone with information is asked to call 301-279-8000 or 240-773-5400.
