The two girls took off from their home in the 300 block of Maine Avenue at about 4:40 p.m. when 13-year-old Xiomara Zelaya ran away and took her 9-year-old sister, Heidi Moreno, with her, police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
Xiomara is described as Hispanic, 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 80 pounds with brown eyes and long black hair to her waist. She was wearing black yoga pants and a pink top with gold when she left, Abetkov said.
Heidi is described as Hispanic, 4 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 60 pounds with brown eyes and black shoulder-length hair. She was wearing pink pants, a pink shirt and a beige hooded jacket.
The girls are considered potentially at risk because of cold temperatures tonight. "We're obviously a little concerned because of the weather outside," Abetkov said.
