BEAVERTON, Ore. – Family and friends of a missing 14-year-old girl spent Friday night handing out fliers of Ebony Peters.

Police say the teen may be in a very dangerous situation with some adult men.

Her mother, Roxann Dentler, was out at the Beaverton Transit Center until about 10 p.m., making sure every person who got off the MAX knew her daughter's face.


Dentler says her daughter is developmentally delayed, has adolescent bipolar and that she's a five-year-old emotionally.

Peters was last seen leaving their Aloha house to go to the library supposedly with a trusted friend. But that friend never went.

That was on Jan. 11. Seven days later, Dentler is desperately passing out fliers trying to find her daughter, especially after someone spotted Peters with older men on the MAX.

"She's been seen at two different times – with one time with an adult male and another time with two different adult males," Dentler said. "These people are predators, and they're preying on my baby. She's not capable of taking care of herself."

Dentler says she doesn't know the men and Peters isn't even used to taking the MAX. She hasn't been on her medication.

Dentler says her daughter has no money and only had a heavy sweatshirt on for warmth. A stranger has her phone.

Peters is 5 feet six inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. She has brown eyes and brown hair. In addition to the sweatshirt, she was wearing blue jeans and a white and purple shirt when last seen.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-629-0111.
