UPDATE: Teen Reported Missing From Lake Elsinore

The Hispanic teen was last seen in the Tuscany Hills area around 4 p.m. Sunday, according to a flyer posted on the missing 16-year-old.

UPDATE 11/15 at 11:58 p.m.: Anton Martinez has been found safe, according to his stepfather David Roberts.

UPDATED at 6 p.m. Nov. 13 to include additional information from police: A teen who reportedly lived in Lake Elsinore for a time has now gone missing from the city.

Sixteen-year-old Anton Martinez, who’s also known by the name Anton Roberts, went missing Sunday, according to reports from concerned residents.

A missing person report was taken Monday night about 11 p.m., according to Cpl. Angel Ramos of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. 

"The family used to live in the area and Antone was visiting with friends," Ramos said. "We are still following up on this and at this time we do not suspect any foul play. However the investigation is still continuing." 

The family was visiting the area for the weekend from Clayton, Calif., Ramos added.

According to flyers posted on the missing Hispanic teen, he was last seen in the Tuscany Hills area around 4 p.m. Sunday wearing gray shorts, a dark gray T-shirt, and a navy blue Lake Elsinore Little League All Star jacket with gold lettering. He was also wearing a diamond-like earring in each ear and white sunglasses.

He is described as having a thin build, weighing between 110 and 140 pounds, with a height of between 5’5” and 5’8”, according to the two separate flyers. He has an olive complexion, and short/medium black hair that he wears spiked or brushed straight forward, a flyer states.

Antone and his family moved away from Lake Elsinore several months ago, according to one of the flyers.

“They were in town for a visit and went to a friend’s house,” the flyer continues. When it was time to pick Anton up he was gone, but his cell phone and iPad were found, a flyer states.

Calls to two separate family members were not immediately returned.

Anyone with information on the missing teen should contact the Riverside County Sheriff's Department at 951-776-1099.

Why is the woman's photo up? Who is she and what has she to do with this? Should we be looking for her as well? Any updates? I have a 16 year old boy, and this is really stressful for me wondering if this young man is okay or not. My heart goes out to his parents and family. Let us know if there is anything you need help with.
