Missing teen: Ava Reinhard [UPDATED]

Missing teen: Ava Reinhard [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Ava Reinhard was found safe on May 5, 2014.

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.

Israel keeps treating Syrians

Israel keeps treating SyriansSAFED, Israel — When an Israeli army ambulance brought an injured Syrian man to Ziv Medical Center in this northern Israeli city two months ago, the doctors didn’t know where exactly he was from. They saw that his leg had been amputated, and based on his own fragmented account and the physical evidence, the doctors surmised he had been hit by a shell. But they didn’t know exactly how he had gotten there. And when he leaves the hospital later this month, they don’t know where he’s goi...

Kansas City shooting happens amid its centennial year celebrations

Kansas City shooting happens amid its centennial year celebrationsEVERY Friday at noon, my two-year-old daughter and I rush through the doors of the JCC of Greater Kansas City here to meet my father for lunch. We are usually late, and the JCC’s Heritage Center, catering to active seniors (and their preschool-aged guests), is only our first stop. Vivien refuses to leave until she and zayde have had a run of the entire building. At the White Theater, she chatters on about the time she saw “Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins.” She reads books about Purim an...
