Maryland police are searching for two sisters who disappeared from their home last weekend without any belongings, including their eyeglasses.
Karmen and Kandyce Matos, ages 16 and 11 respectively, were last seen by their parents at their home in Silver Spring on Saturday night, according to a Montgomery County Police Department news release. When their parents went to check on them the next morning at approximately 11 a.m., the girls were gone.
Detectives believe the sisters to be together, and while their father believes they ran away, he isn’t sure why they would’ve left without their eyeglasses, NBC Washington reports.
“They left with nothing,” Ramon Matos, the girls’ father told the station, “They’ve got nothing with them. They got no money, no clothes, nothing.”
