Two Turlock Teens Reported Missing

Elizabeth Avalos, 14 (left), and Ethan Munoz, 14 (right) have been reported missing out of Turlock as of Monday night.

Two 14-year-old high school students from Turlock are being reported missing by the family.

Family members are reporting that Elizabeth Avalos, 14, is missing. Avalos also goes by the name Lizzy and is a freshman at Pitman High School.

Avalos may be with her boyfriend, Ethan Munoz, 14, a freshman at Turlock High School, who has also been reported missing.

According to Teresa Silva, Avalos’ mother, Avalos was last seen by her mother when she was dropped off for A period at school Monday around 6:50 a.m. The family became aware that Avalos may have ran away after a friend who Avalos may have been with said that Avalos had mentioned the possibility earlier; the friend did not think Avalos was serious.

Silva called the school when she heard what Avalos told her friend, and the school reported that Avalos had not gone to any of her classes and someone had left the school a message saying Avalos was sick and would not be attending any classes, said Silva.

Munoz also did not attend any of his classes on Monday and a similar message was left for Turlock High School, said Silva.

Through phone records, Silva found that the two teens were at a bus depot around 7:15 a.m. She also found that they were at a bus depot on Ninth Street in Modesto around 3 p.m. thanks to an Instagram post.

Munoz’s parents found a number to a teen rescue shelter in San Francisco in his room, and believe the teens may be in Modesto or San Francisco.

According to Silva, Munoz and his family are moving out of state in November and that may be why the teen couple ran away.

It is unknown at this time if the Turlock Police Department are actively searching for the teens; the Turlock Police Department could not be reached at this time. However, Silva said police have not been helpful since the teens are runaways and were not kidnapped.

“Runaway kids can turn into kidnapped kids really fast,” said Silva.

Anyone who sees Avalos or Munoz, or has any information on their whereabouts are asked to call Silva at 209-345-2112 or the Turlock Police Department at 209-668-1200.

    Drives me crazy when someone who should know better uses poor grammar! No wonder nobody around here knows how to conjugate verbs. Especially when the read articles that don't get it right. Your 6th sentence is wrong. The correct form of the word is run, not ran.
  3. Diana says:
    Gary, there are more important things to worry about here than grammar.

    This whole section makes no sense to me: "According to Teresa Silva, Avalos’ mother, Avalos was last seen by her mother when she was dropped off for A period at school Monday around 6:50 a.m. [b]The family became aware that Avalos may have ran away after a friend who Avalos may have been with said that Avalos had mentioned the possibility earlier; the friend did not think Avalos was serious[/b]".

    Gee Gary, I would be willing to bet you wouldn't be concerned about grammar if it was YOUR child (grandchild, sister, niece)! And what about YOUR grammar in your third sentence?

  9. Kc says:

  10. Anthony says:

  11. The Track Star says:
    ok A) Gary this is about my best friends baby sister it doesn't matter if they used the words run and ran in the wrong concept. These are missing kids not some Grammar contest! Please... quit being a grammar Nazi. Oh and for the other comments about Lizzy being pregnant, I HIGHLY! HIGHLY! doubt that she is pregnant because I know her parents and i know that she would not do that type of stuff.

    Gary
    It drives me crazy when someone like you uses an article like this as a platform to rant about grammer. Seriously? Check out your own grammer! Furthermore, consider the matter at hand first! Your stupid ass comment was really not necessary!

  21. Bianca says:
    This is my sister and her bf. Lizzy is not pregnant. They ran away together because they didn't want to be separated when the time would come for him to move.
  22. Isabel says:
    If Lizzy is found is she going to get Into trouble?
  23. A Friend says:
    I don't want to speak for the parents but at this point I'm sure their number one concern is that she is home safe. They love her and miss her. Just imagine one of your most prized possession's being taken from you. Your main concern would be just getting it back SAFE at this point.
  24. Did the police call this a "kidnapping" or did this website? says:
    Once again the brain trust leading the "news" gathering at TCN, make a non-story a "TCN story". If the police do not believe it is a Missing Persons case, there is usually a reason. It is sad, and of course the community should try to do what they can to help.

    Like Bianca said they ran away because he was moving.
