Two young girls who apparently snuck out of their Pacoima homes to go the park last night never returned home, according to the LAPD. Anna Lopez and Ruby Zapata, both 11 years old, reportedly headed to Pacoima Park in the Northeast Valley at about 9 p.m.[Update: The two have been found safe, according to KFI AM 640. They were apparently sleeping over at a friend.]

Both girls are Hispanic. Lopez is about 5’1”, weighs around 100 pounds, has brown hair, brown eyes and was wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans and blue/black shoes. Zapata stands about 4 feet, weighs around 100 pounds, black hair, green eyes, and was wearing a grey tank top, black “skinny” jeans and white converse shoes.

The LAPD alerted the media and community at 8:05 a.m., but did not have photos digitized yet. Anyone who has information is encouraged to call the police.
