May 3, 2006 – Police are looking for three teenage girls who ran away from a group home in Estate Tan Tan Terrace last week. All three are minors.
Amanda Brin, a 15-year-old St. Croix resident, is 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and is dark complexioned with dark brown eyes and black hair.
Sixteen-year-old Valarie Maldonado is approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 118 pounds, and has a light complexion with black long hair and brown eyes. When she left the group home, she was last seen wearing black denim jeans, black blouse with a white collar and black sneakers.

Deputy Chief Herminio Velazquez is asking for the assistance of the residents of St. Croix, particularly residents who live on the western end of the island, to help locate these minors or advise them to return to the group home.
Velazquez warned that anyone harboring the teenagers could be arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and spend time in jail.
