UPDATE (Nov. 7, 2017): Sinahi Aguilar-Cruz has been found safe, police say. 


Police are searching for a 16-year-old girl who is missing again after being kidnapped by a man accused of being in a gang last month.

Police say she needs help and is endangered.

Police describe her as a Hispanic female who is 5 feet 2 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes.

Aguilar-Cruz was the subject of an Amber Alert on Oct. 16 after she was kidnapped from a party, News4 previously reported.

Roberto Medrano Segovia, 21, was charged with abduction, gang participation, destruction of property and providing a false name to law enforcement Aguilar-Cruz found safe.

Segovia and the victim were at a party on Danville Road early Oct. 15 when they got into an argument that turned physical. Other people at the party helped the victim, and the two were separated

At that point, police say Segovia pulled out a knife and claimed to be a member of the gang MS-13. Segovia left the home, but returned a short time later with other people, according to police.
