The San Ramon Police Department continues to seek the public's help in finding two teenagers who have been missing since last week, and officials said Sunday they believe both girls to be "in good health" based on the ongoing investigation.
Police announced via social media on Friday afternoon that they were actively searching for 16-year-old Marybel "Ruby" Gonzalez and 14-year-old Aaminah "Mina" Khan, after they were reported by their families as likely runaways on Wednesday (March 16).
As the police and community effort to locate the two girls carried into the weekend, San Ramon police posted on social media just after 8 a.m. Sunday that Gonzalez and Khan had not been located, but "we believe both girls are in good health based on our investigation, recent sightings, and communication with local youth via social media."
"Again, any info is welcome by calling (925) 973-2779 or texting (925) 232-0880," police added. "Please help Ruby and Mina safely return home!"
Gonzalez is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes, last seen wearing black jeans, Converse sneakers and a black zip-up sweatshirt.
Khan is described as 5 feet tall with shoulder-length hair and black eyes, last seen wearing baggy jeans and a sweatshirt of an unknown color. Both were reportedly last seen carrying black backpacks.
Both teens are students at Dougherty Valley High School and were last seen together in the Gale Ranch area, according to police, who said evidence suggested the pair had plans to run away from home.
SRPD is asking for anyone with information on the teens' whereabouts to call the department at 925-973-2779.
In addition to police, community members had initiated a volunteer search effort for the two that got underway as of Friday afternoon.
