Make-a-List Monday: Pregnant runaways, or ones who took their kids with them

This is a list of teens who are classified as runaways, and who were either pregnant or possibly pregnant at the time they disappeared, or they already had a kid whom they took with them. I don’t count teen runaways who left their children behind.

  1. Janteyl Danielle Johnson
  2. Jessica Ann Kinsey (maybe)
  3. Sara Savannah Miller
  4. Mariela Roblero Bravo and her one-month-old son, Wisley Tojil
  5. Astrid Piola Rodriguez and her two-month-old son, Dylammsteven Miralda-Rodriguez
  6. Shayna Mariah Saine-Garcia
  7. Alicia Marie Scott
  8. Cindy D. Valle
  9. Elsa Janell “Lilly” Wind

    Is the baby’s name seriously Dylammsteven? That’s horrible.

      Yeah, it really is. Perhaps one parent wanted the name Dylan and the other wanted Steven and they wound up splitting the difference?

      I know, right?!

      I’m not sure she actually ran away.

    Is it me, or does Shayna Marie Saine-Garcia look a LOT like Nicki Minaj? I’m struck by the resemblance between them, except that Minaj is many years older and of Trinidadian heritage.

    Another person I’ve always wondered about is Cathy Marie Moulton who disappeared from Portland, Maine in 1971. Although I’ve never seen reports that she was pregnant or that she actually ran away from home, it is a possibility.
    She was supposedly seen in the company of two older guys in their twenties and she was 16 at the time. Based on some things I’ve read, I have to wonder if she had a relationship with one of them (his name was Lester Everett and he is now deceased). This is purely speculation on my part, but I wonder if maybe she was pregnant, feared disappointing her parents, and left home of her own accord?
    A lot of girls tended to do that when they got into “trouble” as teens. I had an unplanned pregnancy in my late teens and I remember the anxiety/shame/fear surrounding the whole situation.

      Turns out Shayna was found ages ago and the NCMEC forgot to take her off their database. I’m going to purge her case next chance I get.

        Oh, I see. I also wonder about Kathrynn Seefeldt and Deborah Ann Quimby, although no one seems to know for sure if they were actually pregnant.

        Kathrynn’s mom believed that she was, and people believed that about Deborah as well when she vanished.

        I don’t know if there’s any actual evidence that Deborah was pregnant, or if it was just some rumor floating around. I think it’s strange that her bike has never been located.
