Elizabeth Ramero is a 14 year old from Kennewick, believed to be in danger. She was last seen getting into her boyfriend's car outside Phoenix HS. But police say the 19 year old may have taken Ramero against her will to Mexico. They are looking for Edwardo Flores Rosales. The pair may be in a dark green Ford Escape SUV. Call 911 if you see them.
Blockwatch programs booming

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Gang incidents have people in Yakima County signing up for blockwatch programs. Neighbors want to stop graffiti, break ins, and car-prowls before criminals even get to their neighborhoods. We're told more than a dozen blockwatch programs are now based in the Yakima area as neighbors take back their streets before gang members strike.
"We feel pretty safe where we live and I think it's because of those types of programs that we feel as safe as we do," said Hal Larsen, whose sister is a block captain in Terrace Heights.
Despite the success, YSO deputies tell us they're always interested in setting up additional blockwatch programs. To find out more, give the sheriff's office a call.
