SAN ANGELO — Two San Angelo area teenagers have been missing since Dec. 18 and their families are hoping they come home for Christmas.
Adelina “Addie” Ornelas, 15, and Jonathan Mayville, 16, have been missing since Dec. 18. Their families believe the two are together, as they had been talking to each other through social media. Both have been reported as missing.
Both families are working together to get their missing children home.
Adelina “Addie” Ornelas
Addie is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs about 125 to 130 pounds, wears glasses and has long brown hair with bangs. She was last seen in Wall, where she goes to school, wearing a black hoodie, ripped black jeans and white sneakers.
“She’s never ran away before; she has no reason to,” said Nikki Bazan-Gonzalez, her mother. “This is very unlike her. We love her, we miss her and we want her home. I want my daughter back for Christmas.”
She is a Wall student and participates in basketball and softball.
Bazan-Gonzalez left this message for her daughter, “Addie, please come home. We all love you and miss you.”
Johnathan Mayville attends Ambleside School, is about 5 feet 1 inch tall, and wears black glasses. His mother, Priscilla Mayville, described the night he disappeared.
“He came home from work and everything seemed to be just fine,” Priscilla said. “He told me about his day and said he was going to take a shower and go to bed. There were no problems at all—no signs he was upset.”
Later that night, she awoke to take care of one of her other children, and said she “had a feeling” to check on the others. Johnathan was not in his bed, which had been made.
“I’m just so shook up… We have Johnathan’s gifts under the Christmas tree,” Priscilla said, choking through tears, saying she had a message for her missing son.
“I want Jonathan to know, ‘I love you so much. Johnathan, this is not you. Your family is all waiting for you. We need to hear that you are safe, please come home.'”
Priscilla Mayville also wanted to say, “If anyone has him, please let my son come home. I will not stop until I lay my eyes on him and know he’s alive.”
Jonathan Mayville was driving a 2011 gray single cab Chevy Silverado, which has been reported as stolen. The pickup belongs to his mother.
