Flor Escobar

WEST VALLEY CITY — Police here are asking for the public's help in finding an endangered teenage girl who investigators believe ran away with an older man.

Flor Escobar, 15, recently struck up a friendship with a 30-year-old man. Her father disapproved of the relationship, said West Valley Police Capt. Tom McLachlan, and told the man not to have any contact with his daughter.

Escobar was last seen March 3 getting ready for school.

Police are now looking for Escobar and Marvin Garcia, who also goes by the name Marvin Moreira. Detectives fear Escobar willingly ran off with Garcia and may have headed out of state or to Guatemala, where he still has family.

Escobar is 4 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 100 pounds. Garcia is 5 feet 6 inches, weighs150-pounds and has black hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information on the couple can call West Valley police at 840-4000.
