    CA - Enrique Rios, 16, Esparto, 17 Oct 2016 & Elijah Moore, 17, Woodland, 4 Nov 2016

    2 Yolo County teens missing for weeks
    SACRAMENTO - The mothers of two Yolo County teenagers are pleading for their return. Enrique Rios, 16 and Elijah Moore, 17, go to school together. Neither have cars.

    Enrique went missing six weeks ago. Elijah went missing three weeks later. There are no leads, and their moms said they will put up missing posters until they get answers.
    The Vanished podcast did an episode on this on Tuesday. I'm listening to it now. Poscast link

    Enrique Rios, 16, and Elijah Moore, 17, are friends, classmates, and co-workers. They disappeared within weeks of each other.
    Each initially was declared a runaway, but Woodland police now classify Elijah’s disappearance as suspicious.

    Alicia Moore is Elijah's mom and Lola Rios is Enrique's mom...

    Both mothers said their sons were not angels. They recently got in trouble for fighting at school and were moved to a continuation school and placed on probation. Because they had good behavior, the teens were able to work in a construction program where they made money and learned different trades. Enrique is the only one that has ever ran away before but never this long.

    “There is nothing to suggest he was doing anything else other than school and work,” Moore said.

    They vanished without a trace, Elijah on his way home, and Enrique with a text that said he needed to be free.

    "On November 4, 2016, Elijah Moore, 17, cashed a check at a check cashing business at 155 Main Street in Woodland. Then, just before 4 p.m., he called his mother. That’s the last time anyone has heard from him...

    Elijah is described as Black, 5 feet 11 inches tall, and weighs about 200 pounds. He has with short hair and brown eyes. He was seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, yellow shirt, green backpack, khaki pants, and tan work boots."

    hopefully they get more coverage and support and are found safe. I'm concerned about the text from Enrique though.

    Great information from the mothers in that podcast. My heart hurts for both mothers.

    I realize that LE has limited time and resources, but what would it take, one phone call to get the surveillance video from the cash checking place? It would be a travesty if that video isn't preserved.

    I noticed that these two went to school in Woodland just a few miles from where Sherri Papini was found. I don't see any obvious connection, but the timing and geographical proximity does seem like a big coincidence. Hopefully they weren't somehow victims of the same abductors.

    The teen who also prided himself on his appearance took no clothing or other personal belongings, Rios added. She’s hoping he might have touched base with friends in Davis, where the family once lived...

    He called me and said, ‘Mom, I’ll be home in a little bit,’ and he never made it home,” Alicia Moore said. She added that her son has no history of running away, and she knew of no arguments or other problems that would make him want to leave.

    “He’s a mama’s boy,” she said. “There was no reason for my son to vanish into thin air.”...

    Moore suspects someone, likely an adult, befriended the teen boys “and lured them off somewhere.” She said she’s urged investigators to look into whether they’ve fallen victim to a human-trafficking operation.

    How have I only heard of this. I wish news stations did a missing picture each day and a story. Every media outlet should do this. So sad that only certain cases get media attention.

    Connected to Rico Harris?

    These disappearances occurred just south of where Rico Harris vanished in October 2014. Makes one wonder if they are connected....I mean, three young men of color going missing from the same locale....
