Detectives continue search for runaway Kendall Co. teen

Updated: November 8, 2012 10:39PM

Kendall County Sheriff’s detectives continue to ask for help in locating a 13-year-old Boulder Hill girl who is believed to have run away from home last weekend.

Plank Junior High student Reyna Martinez was last seen by her mother at 2:50 a.m. Sunday at the family’s Boulder Hill home, in the 0-99 block of Longbeach Road.

Detectives said they do not suspect foul play at this time, and that family members believe Reyna has left on her own accord.

Reyna’s mother has told police she has a history of depression. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, blue jeans, a white Abercrombie hooded jacket, and black Converse shoes. She is described as 4-foot-10, 120 pounds, with fair skin, black hair, and hazel eyes.

“There have been several people that have called in with tips, and some people who have allegedly spoken to her, but we are unable to verify any of those statements at this time,” said Detective Sgt. Joe Jasnosz. “We are looking specifically for anyone who has had contact with her.”

There are two detectives currently working the case who are speaking to alleged witnesses at this time, Jasnosz said

“She is still considered a runaway. We won’t say she just disappeared into thin air,” he said.

Still, there have been no confirmed sightings of the teen in any specific area.

Anyone with information about Reyna Martinez’s whereabouts should contact police at 630-553-5856, or Detective Byron Maggos at 630-553-1500, ext. 1120.
