Original Release: Police seek information about missing/runaway teens

Loveland and Fort Collins Police detectives are asking for help locating two missing girls who ran away from home.

Ava Chance, 13, of Fort Collins and Isabel Romualdo, 13, of Loveland left their respective homes in the early morning hours of November 11, 2020. Ava was initially associated with an older model 4-door red vehicle (pictured). She got into the vehicle in Fort Collins, which arrived in Loveland around 1:45 a.m. and dropped her off before returning north. Police are asking for help identifying the driver. This person is not a suspect; detectives want to find out if they have any information about where Ava and Isabel may have been going.

The two girls are believed to be traveling together and were last seen in the area of 41st Street and Taft Avenue in Loveland around 2:40 a.m. on November 11.

Ava is described as 5’07 tall, 110 pounds, dark brown hair, and blue eyes. Isabel is described as 5’00 tall, 162lbs, shoulder-length black hair with faded blue color, and brown eyes. Pictures are attached. It is possible that they are changing their appearance and going by different names.

Police currently do not have indications of foul play. However, given the young age of the missing individuals and their lack of access to resources, there is concern for their wellbeing.

Anyone with an immediate sighting should call Fort Collins Police Dispatch at 970-419-FCPD. Any other leads/tips should be sent to Detective Kelsey Skaar at 970-221-6514. People may also call the Tips Line at 970-416-2825 or email
