MORENO VALLEY - A 17-year-old Moreno Valley girl went missing today after leaving school, with witnesses reporting that she may have gotten into a pickup truck.

The teenager was reported missing around 12:25 p.m. from her residence in the 27300 block of Cottonwood Avenue, near Moreno Beach Drive, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

There were initial reports the girl was walking near the house when she was picked up by someone driving a green, newer model Ford pickup truck, but authorities could not confirm that.

The 17-year-old attended a summer class between 8 and 10 a.m. at Valley View High School, a little over a mile away, according to sheriff's officials.

Deputies were checking local retail outlets and hillsides around the Cottonwood Avenue address to try to locate the girl. An air search turned up no clues.

The teen was described as 5-foot-7 and 113 pounds. She was last seen wearing a green sweatshirt, gray jeans and black shoes, according to the sheriff's department.

Where is the photo of the girl? How can the public help save a girl without a photo?

There are quite a few Child Predators living in the area. It is important to be able to recognize their faces and places of residence.

Like a mother I know what her parents are going through. The worst nightmare for any parent is not knowing if there child is fine... Hope you guys fine her soon. & if the dogs that took her are reading this REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE SISTERS, AUNTS, and a MOM. Put yourself in her parents position. What I don't understand is how is it that nobody saw nothing. If any body saw something please help this family. & all my prayers are for family LOPEZ

I pray for peace, comfort and closure for the family. My and my families prayers are with you. May the Lord strengthen you, keep you and in time give you peace. King David said in 2Samuel when his baby son passed away,"He can no longer come to me, but I can go to him"; in
God's timing.
May the Lord Keep you.

I come from a Latino family too. I think and know that a girl should always have something with her or even if necessary kick him in the balls. The thing know matter if it is someone you know really well you should always be per-cautious and don't get near any strangers they could be very nice,but just walk away. Oh and I also go to school and yes I have walked up about five blocks and you should always be alert and look at your surroundings always yell if necessary take action. All I have to say girls be extra careful please.
