Two METCO students at Marblehead High School who did not report to school March 1 have since been reported missing, Superintendent John Buckey wrote in an email alert to the school community early Wednesday morning.
The Marblehead and Boston police departments are investigating the whereabouts of Janeiry Nicole Torres and Zaira Randall, both 15, according to Buckey.
Buckey wrote that police reports indicate that the students took a school bus from Boston to Marblehead on the morning of March 1 but did not enter the building. Police believe the students took the MBTA back to Boston and were last seen exiting a bus at Government Center station, Buckey relayed.
Anyone who has information that may assist the investigation is asked to contact the Boston Police Department at 617-343-4275 or Marblehead Police Department at 781-631-1212.
“We are hopeful that the students will be located quickly,” Buckey concluded.
