Missing Gaithersburg Woman Found Safe, Police Say

WASHINGTON — The woman who went missing Saturday night after leaving her shift at a Gaithersburg Chinese restaurant has been located safe and unharmed in Montgomery Village, police said Tuesday.

Angelica Ivania Barahona-Rivas, 18, of Gaithersburg, is the cousin of 15-year-old Damaris Alexandra Reyes Rivas, who was abducted and killed last month in a suspected gang-related attack.

Montgomery County police said Barahona-Rivas’ family was concerned for her safety and had been unable to contact her.

At one point, Barahona-Rivas was thought to be in New Jersey, police said.

A total of 10 people have been charged in the gang-related disappearance and death of Reyes Rivas, who disappeared from her home and was believed to have been killed in Fairfax County last month.
