AVA Reinhard, 15, an attractive Cherry Creek High student, has been missing for a week. She was last seen at home on Wednesday, April 23, at 8:30 a.m., before she ostensibly left to go to school.
Ava did not take her phone with her, probably to avoid further contact.
Her family, who belongs to Temple Sinai, contacted the Greenwood Village Police Department at 5:15 p.m. April 23 and reported her as a runaway, says GV administrative coordinator Crystal Dean.
Compared to cases involving suspected foul play or a kidnapping, a girl who tells her friends that she’s running away might be treated with less urgency, Dean acknowledges.
Many Colorado runaways are unreported.
