Westport Police Locate Runaway Student

Lisa Martins ’14 was located on May 3 in Ansonia, Conn., according to Captain Samuel Arciola of the Westport Police.

“She is fine, and we are making arrangements to have her reunited with the family,” Arciola said.

Martins ran away from home on April 4. Cases involving runaway children are not common and required the police to use all tools available to them. The Westport Police collaborated with other police divisions in the state, as well as the National Database for Missing Children in an attempt to locate Martins. The police also put out press releases in newspapers throughout the state. “There was a tremendous amount of hours put in by the police,” Arciola said.
