ORIGINAL POST | Detectives have confirmed that missing Bremerton teenager Ariel Luddington is with her boyfriend, and the two are likely in Oregon, police said Tuesday.
Luddington, 16, has been missing since late last week, when she left her house in East Bremerton. She is in need of immediate medical attention, according to the Bremerton Police Department.
Police haven’t been able to contact her or her boyfriend, 17-year-old Alex Pequignot, who has also been reported as a runaway.
Surveillance video shows Luddington and Pequignot were in Southern Washington on Sunday. They are likely heading south. Luddington appears to have cut her hair, removed her eye glasses and removed a bandage around a vein pick in her right arm.
Luddington is described as a white female, 4 feet 9 inches tall, 100 pounds, with light brown hair and blue eyes. She could have slurred speech and stagger because of a medical condition, and her left foot is turned inward as she walks.
Anyone with information about their location is asked to contact 911 or the Bremerton Police Department at 360-473-5228 or 360-473-5220.
