A 13 year old girl from Bullet Tree Falls village in the Cayo district has reportedly ran away from home.

The child is Merdith Staine.  Her mother Ruth Bardalez told police that on Sunday evening around 6 o’clock, she went to a nearby store in the village and left Merdith in the company of her aunt.

The mother says that when she returned from the shop, she saw Merdith with a Hispanic man in a nearby orchard.

When the mother began scolding Merdith, the man reportedly took off running and then Merdith ran off behind the man.  She has not been seen or heard from since.

Merdith Staine is described as being of fair complexion, stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and has freckles on her face.

The teenager was last seen wearing a three-quarter pants and white blouse.  She was bare feet.

The search continues for the 13 year old, and police investigations continue.
