STOCKTON (CBS13) – Police in Stockton are asking for help to find a missing girl who is considered at-risk because of her young age.
Police say 12-year-old Pebbles Singkeo left her mom’s home in the 700 block of E. Hazelton Avenue five days ago after an argument, and was last seen that night about 7 p.m.
Pebbles’ mother, Cynthia Singkeo, tells CBS13 the girl was mad her phone charger was not working and went to a neighbor’s home. She then told her mother she was going to the store to get some bread.
Although she left on her own, police consider her at-risk because of her age.
Cynthia says her daughter is a loving girl, and say it’s unlike her to disappear for days. She also says Pebbles has never run away before.
“She’s a good kid, if you need help she’s there to help you. She’s the type that will give you the shirt of her back,” said Cynthia. “Pebbles, please come home, please…I love you and come home, please, I need you.”
Cynthia also asked anyone who has seen Pebbles to call the police.
The family has posted missing persons fliers all over the city.
Police say they have no reason to suspect foul play at this point.
