    Three people have been arrested as police search for a teenager who has been missing since August 3 -- and police say that his disappearance is gang-related.

    Miguel Angel Ruiz Carrillo was last seen Aug. 3 leaving his home in the 4200 block of Buckman Road in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County. 

    When he didn't come home by the next morning, his family called police. He still hasn't been found.

    Family members said it was out of character for Carrillo to leave without telling his family. Police said Monday that Carillo is "associated with gang activity."

    Police arrested two adults: Jose Vincent-Sosa, 20 and Edwin Dinarte Moreno, 18, both of Alexandria. They also arrested a girl, who was not named because she is a juvenile. All were charged with abduction and gang participation.

    Fairfax County Police believe he was last seen in a wooded area near the end of Pole Road at Pondside Terrace. Police have searched with K-9 teams and a helicopter.

    Carrillo is an eleventh grader at an alternative school in the Fairfax County Public Schools system.

    Anyone with information about Carrillo's disappearance is asked to call Detective M. Fox at 571-489-1796 or Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
