DARLINGTON, Wis. -

The Darlington Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a missing 14-year-old girl who they believe might have left the state with a man.

Police said Adriana Andrade has been missing since early Monday morning.

According to police, the investigation revealed she likely left Darlington willingly with a 22-year-old acquaintance, identified as Marcos Mermudez-Sanchez. Police said he's suspected of interference with custody of a child.

"Even though she may have went with him willingly, it's concerning being we don't know whether there was any type of intimidation or coercion to get her to go, and the reality is she's a 14-year-old girl whose parents did not consent for her to leave our community, and so the family is obviously concerned about her well-being," said Darlington Police Chief Jason King.

The vehicle likely used in this case was a maroon 2000 Chevy Blazer with Wisconsin registration 389-UWM, according to the Darlington Police Department.

Police said all attempts to reach either of the two subjects by family and authorities have been unsuccessful.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Darlington Police Department at 608-776-4981.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
