Baltimore County police are searching for a 13-year-old immigrant from Mexico who disappeared Sunday evening, four days after she arrived in the United States.

Secilia Del Carmen Carcamo-Deras, who does not speak English, left a note at her home in the 500 block of Castle Drive, just north of the Baltimore City line, about 7 p.m. informing her mother she was leaving, police said.

"She is missing, she does not speak English, she does not know anyone else in the area, she does not have any money and the mother is extremely concerned for her well-being," said Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a police spokeswoman.

Warehime said police are also searching for Ismael Torres, 24, of the first block of Lambourne Road in Towson. Torres works with the girl's mother and went to the family's house on Sunday "wanting to meet Secilia," according to police.

"We are just hoping that he might have some answers for us," Warehime said. "We have not been able to locate him or Secilia."

Anyone who has information on the case is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410-887-2198.
