Moultrie girl missing

THOMASVILLE — A Moultrie teen has been missing since seeing a Thomasville physician last fall.

The girl, Rita Lupe Martinez, whose 16th birthday was this month, has been missing since Oct. 2, 2012.

“She was in Thomasville to see a doctor and ran away,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

Hampton said the girl is believed to be in the Alabama area or trying to get to Los Angeles, Calif.

“She might have a guitar in her possession,” the officer said.

 The teen was described as 5-foot-6, weighing 136 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

 When last seen, she was wearing a black T-shirt with pink writing, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.

Martinez is listed on the website of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. The agency is in touch with Thomasville police.

Anyone with information about the teen should call 911.

In remarks before the ribbon cutting, Colquitt Regional Medical Center CEO and President Jim Matney said Georgia Linen Service won't compete with any existing laundries in Moultrie because it serves only industrial clients; co-owner Mel Harrell echoed that statement and said the business doesn't process garments at all.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
