Police Search For 13-Year-Old Girl

Tarboro police are searching for a 13-year-old girl.

They say Nancy Ramirez of Princeville was signed out of Martin Middle School in Tarboro at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Police tell WITN News she was signed out of school by Leonardo Frias, a 20 year old who was staying with the Ramirez family for about a month.

Frias, according to police, is originally from Halifax County.

Police say they have video of Frias signing Ramirez out of school Thursday.

The family says the ID of Ramirez's brother is missing, and that Frias may have used that ID at the school.

Police tells WITN they may be travelling in a 1997 Mercury Mystique, which is a dark brownish-gold color and has a plate number of ZZK-9757.

Police say Ramirez has not been in contact with her family. Police are working to provide photos of the two to media.

    obviously reading between the lines, the 20 year old showed the stolen id of dad to the office so he could check her out. office help would not know this wasn't the dad.

    I know she's a minor, but a photo of her would be helpful, in case someone spots them.

    I would not & cannot pick up my g-children unless their parents call the schools to alert them that their G-mother is picking them up from school!!!

    I'm willing to bet the 13yr planned it with the 20yr old. She's old enough to know who can and can't sign her our of school.

    It could be a puppy love thing. Moms should never let a friend/stranger stay in her home with a teen child, girl or boy. She could have gone willing. He could have forged a note , or pretended to be a parent over the phone. This has so many side to it. If she didnt want to go, she could have spoken up or made a reason to go get something from her locker. Let pray that she come home safely and soon

    It's the same everywhere.... you go in you sign a piece of paper and you leave with your kid. No one checks id. They should, but they don't!!!!!!

    Sounds like someone at the school really dropped the ball here. However this ends, I won't be surprised to see a giant lawsuit.

    Are there not better rules in place for signing a child out of school? I know it may be a possibility that the man has the brothers ID, but wouldn't the school contact the parents any time someone was signing out a child?
