A California Amber Alert has been issued for 15-year-old Alora Benitez who is believed to be in the company of two murder suspects, local officials say. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 immediately.

Alora was last seen at 9 a.m. on Wednesday in Torrance, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. She is believed to be traveling with her mother and an adult male, both of whom are murder suspects.

They are believed to be traveling in a white 2013 BMW 4-door sedan with Nevada license plate “MARIMAR.” It’s unknown where they may be heading, according to the amber alert, which was issued on late Wednesday night.
