UPDATE, NOV. 17, 9:32 A.M.: Fourteen-year-old Jacqueline Martinez of Anaheim has been found and an arrest has been made, according to the official Find Jackie Martinez Facebook page.

More details coming . . .

UPDATE, NOV. 10, 4:03 P.M.: The official Find Jackie Martinez Facebook page has posted details on a candlelight vigil. More info at the bottom of the post, after the jump.

UPDATE, NOV. 10, 8:44 A.M.: Fourteen-year-old Jacqueline Martinez was last seen walking from her Anaheim home to the Jack in the Box at Dale Street and Ball Road around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30. She sent a message from her phone the next day saying she was fine and staying with a friend, but Anaheim police don't know if she was the person who left it, says Sgt. Rick Martinez (no relation), the department spokesman.

Passing out fliers at last night's Anaheim City Council meeting, family members said it is not like Jacqueline to go missing like this.

ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 9, 3:57 P.M.: A 14-year-old girl has not been seen by her family since the day before Halloween, so her family and the Anaheim Police Department are distributing Jacqueline Martinez's photo in hopes she can be located.

Have you seen her?
Internet communications led those looking for Martinez to believe she left her Anaheim home around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, to meet with a local 15 year-old boy. However, he says Martinez never arrived for their meeting, according to a statement from Sgt. Rick Martinez, Anaheim police spokesman (and no relation to the missing girl).

"Police detectives, Jacqueline's family and friends, and a private investigator have not been able to locate Ms. Martinez," reads the release. "While there is nothing at this stage to indicate foul play, there is a concern for her safety due to her age and the length of time she has been missing."

Anyone with information about the girl's location, or who has any information that will help investigators, is asked to call Detective Moody at 714-765-1961.

A Facebook page has also been set up to help find Martinez--click here to see more photos.

Sorry to rain on your parade, but yes there was an arrest made, and rightfully so.  But, the 24 year-old guy they arrested had a willing accomplice.....Jacqueline.

Don't be surprised if she drops a load next August, with us taxpayers picking up the tab, and not just for the hospital bill, but the upbringing of the kid.

Yes, I know I am going to be blasted for this post, but hey, I can live with it.  Those of you in the know will agree that I'm telling the truth.

Would you be whining & showing yer racism if it was a story about some white teen who shacked up w some white trash cunt? Would your prediction be the same? As for the tax payer picking up the tab, why not? The U.S. taxpayer has been paying for illegal wars for 10 years now, what's 1 more bill eh? You're just another 'white guy' left behind enemy lines deal with it bitch.

Check this out homegirl, I happen to be Hispanic.  And while you're at it, go back to school and learn how to spell and use grammar.

Uneducated scrap like you are just one of the many reasons why people bash our culture.
