An update on Antonia Mendez, the 15 year old teen from Penn Yan that was reported missing earlier this week.
Mendez is under the supervision of the state Office of Children and Family Resources and was wearing an ankle monitor. She has since cut off the monitor, which has resulted in a warrant being issued for her. Mendez told her mom she was going to Eastview Mall with friends but police believe she is in the Rochester area instead. The teen has reached out to family through social media and states she does not want to return home. Police are now treating this case as a runaway and a person wanted on a warrant. Mendez is a white female with light skin, 5’3, 130 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing jeans, an unknown color shirt with a backpack.
Anyone with information on Mendez’s whereabouts should contact Penn Yan Police at 315-536-4426.
