According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff, 15-year-old Monica Howse was last seen 7 days ago after being dropped off for work at the Taco Bell in Big Bear Lake.
According to the Sheriff, Monica did not return home after her shift and was reported missing.
Police believe Monica is in the company of a 23-year-old Hispanic male named Alberto Silva Sanchez (pictured below with Monica). Sanchez is reported to be driving a 1997 black Ford F150 with Kansas plates. His relationship with Monica is unclear.
We hope that Monica is safe, sound and returns to her family. Anyone with information about Monica’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Detective’s Bureau of the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station at (909) 866-0100.
