Kimberly Orellana, born July 7, 2000 is a 12-year-old child who was last on August 9, 2012. She was seen walking along highway 281 between Falfurrias and McAllen, which is located in Texas. Last seen over two month’s ago on August 9, 2012. According to NCMEC, she  may still be in the local area although unlikely according to her parents.

Kimberly is an illegal immigrant from El’Salvador who was travelling with other illegal immigrants. Her parents, who were also illegals, contacted authorities and reported her missing.

Immigrant activist Livio Danna said the group was heading to Houston but left her behind after she couldn’t walk anymore. Now, Danna is doing whatever he can to find the 12 year old girl.

“She was travelling with people. She started to feel uncomfortable, upset and tired and then she just left at that point,” Danna said.

On the website ‘web-sleuths’ Internet users had a few theories. Some thought foul-play, others assumed she was placed in an illegal sex-trafficking ring while others were concerned that the young girl was near McAllen which is close to the Mexican/US boarder and considered a very bad town.

Kimberly is described as a Hispanic female with black hair, brown eyes and has both ears pierced. She is 5’2” tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding this case, please contact: Brooks County Sheriff’s Office (Texas) 1-361-325-3696.

Cameron Hernandez, also 12, was a Corpus Christi child who also went missing a couple week’s after Kimberly’s disappearance.

Cameron was last seen on the 4100 block of Brett Street wearing a white tank top, silver basketball shorts, and black Nike running shoes. She was also using a Camel-back water carrier with a camouflage pattern.

She is described as a Hispanic female, standing about 5’1,” weighs approximately 100 pounds. Cameron has naturally brown hair, but it is currently dyed red. She has brown eyes.

Currently police do not believe Cameron had any reason to run away. Anyone with information is urged to call Corpus Christi police detectives at (361) 886-2670 – ask for Sean McFarland or James Lerma.

Side Note: Similarities between the two girl’s are not only their age but their race, both are Hispanic both have dark hair and brown eyes, both are around the same height and weight and both recently came to Texas. Another similarity is, both are still missing.
