LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Elkton Police say they are searching for two teenagers who have disappeared under “suspicious circumstances” within 18 hours of each other.
The missing teenagers are 19-year-old Ricardo Eugene Levenberry and 16-year-old Jesse Grant Veasey.
Levenberry had been riding his bicycle near a park on Cow Lane in Hollingsworth Manor between 11 a.m. and noon on Aug. 19. A dark-colored vehicle pulled up to Levenberry and he abandoned his bicycle and got in the vehicle.
The vehicle was occupied by a heavyset white male and a white female. Levenberry’s phone was shut off by unknown means around the time frame he was last seen.
Levenberry is described as a 5-foot-10 black male weighing about 155 pounds. He was last seen wearing grey sweatpants, a purple Armani Exchange shirt that had the letters “AE” on the front and green shoes.
