FBI: Missing 14-year-old Indianapolis girl traveling through Georgia with 20-year-old boyfriend


The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Atlanta, along with Georgia’s law enforcement agencies, are intensifying their efforts in a multi-state search for Akary Cruz, a 14-year-old girl from Indianapolis who has been missing since the evening of December 18. The case has gained urgency due to the girl’s young age and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.

Akary Cruz is believed to be in the company of Esvin Cruz Cante, a 20-year-old man, who is identified as her boyfriend. The pair’s current whereabouts are unknown, but they are suspected to be traveling through Georgia. There is a strong possibility that their destination is Guatemala, as it is Cante’s country of origin. This international aspect adds complexity to the search efforts.

Before her disappearance, Akary left behind a note that sheds light on her relationship with Esvin. The note explicitly mentions their romantic involvement and their collective decision to travel to Guatemala. This information has been crucial in guiding the investigation and search efforts.

Akary is described as 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs approximately 120 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes, features that are being circulated in public notices and media to aid in her identification.

The vehicle believed to be used by Akary and Esvin is a blue 2010 Honda Civic, with the license plate number 783CNO. The search for this specific vehicle is a key part of the investigation, as it is critical in tracking their movement and possible locations.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit is leading the investigation and is appealing to the public for any information regarding Akary and Esvin’s whereabouts. They can be contacted at 317-327-6160 or 317-327-3811. Additionally, the FBI Atlanta has provided a contact number (770-216-3000) for immediate reporting in case of any sightings or relevant information. The public is also advised to call 911 immediately if they encounter Cruz or Cante.

The urgency and seriousness of this case are emphasized by the involvement of multiple law enforcement agencies and the FBI, reflecting the concern for Akary Cruz’s safety and well-being.
