North Richland Hills police are looking for a missing 14-year-old girl who they believe disappeared with a 26-year-old man.
Ruby Contreras has been missing since last Wednesday, April 24, when she didn't come home from North Oaks Middle School in Haltom City.
North Richland Hills police believe Contreras is with Stephan Andrew Cox and the two could be heading west by bus. They have already been seen together in El Paso.
Police say Cox came from Ohio for the girl, and was scheduled to go on trial next week for child sex assault. He's accused of convincing a different 14-year-old girl, who he met on the Internet, to drive from Pennsylvania to meet him three months ago.
Police would not say how Cox met Contreras, but they're looking into the Internet as a strong possibility.
Contreras is a Hispanic female, 4' 11", 95 lbs. and last seen wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.
Cox is a Hispanic male, 5' 5" and 130 lbs.
