Ashley Summers – Last Seen
Ashley was last seen near her home on W. 96th St., Cleveland, Ohio on July 6, 2007, and was reported missing July 9, 2007. Ashley packed her clothes and left home after a family argument on July 6, 2007. Family members say that Ashley had left home before, but always returned after a few days. However, this time the 14-year-old did not come back home.
A month after Ashley was reported missing she called home to tell her mother not to worry, and that she was alright. Then, in November 2007, Ashley’s step-grandmother sighted her sitting in a car on West 44th Street, but before she could turn her car around she had disappeared. When last seen Ashley was said to have short hair, and dyed blond.
Police say Ashley left home of her own accord, but because of her age she is considered an endangered runaway.
