Authorities searching for missing Sebree girl

J-E News Editor
Authorities are currently searching for a missing Sebree girl. 
Perla Martinez, 15, was last seen on May 30, 2014 in Sebree, KY. She is 5’1” tall, weighs 115 lbs, has brown eyes, and black hair.

The Webster County Sheriff’s Department is handling the case.
“It is believed that she left home with someone on Friday,” said Naomi Emerson, an investigator with the Center For Search and Investigation (CFSI), a nationwide system of investigators who help search for missing and runaway children. “There’s isn’t a lot of information we can give out, because we don’t want to release information that law enforcement doesn’t want out.”
Through the CFSI website and Facebook pages, various pictures of Martinez are being distributed around the internet. According to Emerson, CFSI has recovered 375-380 missing or runaway children in the past.
“CFSI has found lots and lots of kids with traffickers,” Emerson said. “A lot of young girls are often found with older people they’ve met on Facebook.”
If you have any information or you see Perla Martinez, immediately call Deputy Derrick Ray with the Webster County Sheriff’s Department  at (270)639-5012 or CFSI Investigator Naomi Emerson at (270) 871-4779.
