Police in Maryland are desperately looking for a pair of missing sisters who disappeared from their home in Silver Spring on Saturday without any of their belongings.
Karmen and Kandyce Matos, ages 16 and 11 respectively, were last seen by their parents on Saturday night at around 11 p.m. according to the Montgomery County Police Department. The next day, when the parents went to check on them in their bedroom, the two girls had vanished, without even their eyeglasses.
Both police and the girls’ family are concerned for the girls’ welfare and they are asking the public for help.
Their father believes the girls may have run away together, but he’s not sure why they left their glasses behind, NBC4 in Washington DC reported.
"They left with nothing," their father Ramon Matos told the publication. "They've got nothing with them. They got no money, no clothes, nothing."
The worried dad also noted that it appears that the older sister deleted her Instagram around the time she went missing.
Police believe the girls are together.
Kandyce, the 11-year-old, is described as being 5 feet 4 inches tall, and weighing 137 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. Karmen is described as standing 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighing 160 pounds. She also has black hair and brown eyes.
The siblings have been known to frequent Wheaton Mall in Prince George’s County in Maryland and the Bel Pre area of Washington D.C.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400 or 301-279-8000. The second number is a non-emergency number which takes calls from the public 24 hours a day.
