Endangered Runaway Teens
The Missing Teens
These Young People Could Be In Danger
As a part of my series on missing children I thought I would highlight endangered runaways. What I found out about these missing children is that there is very little information about them. They don’t want to be found for a variety of reasons, and often they don’t have anyone that cares enough to look for them. Hopefully they are safe, but history has shown us that many runaways end up in prostitution and drugs and are often hanging around the wrong crowds. These crowds have convinced the runaways that life on the streets is better than life at home. Sometimes this is true – many runaways come from broken homes and have had rough lives already.
Because there is not much information on these children, I will mostly post pictures, names and cities of them. If there is more information that I can find, I have posted it, as well.
Kathryn Anne Beck was last seen in Aptos, California on October 15, 2011. She is also known as Kat and Kathy-Anne. She has pierced ears. She is white and has brown hair and brown eyes.
Taylre Simone Brown ran away from home in Lafayette, Louisiana on August 15, 2011. She is African American and has black hair and brown eyes. She has a pierced eyebrow.
Dejohnae Porche Buckhannon disappeared in May of 2011 from Detroit, Michigan. She is African American and has black hair and brown eyes. She had blonde extensions when she disappeared. She has many tattoos and her chin is pierced.
James Nathaniel Acevedo-Hodge is a 16 year old young man who ran away from around Germantown, Maryland. He was last seen September 24, 2011. He is African American and has black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a black tshirt, blue jeans with a gold stripe and gray tennis shoes.
Again, these young people are listed as “endangered runaways.” They have very little information about them to share, but probably do not want to be found. Since they are endangered, they still need your help.
If you have any information about these young people, contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at www.missingkids.com or Peas In Their Pods at www.peasintheirpods.com Let’s get the word out and find these young people!
