Missing child

A distressed mother is pleading for help in finding her 16-year-old daughter.

Police in Reading are trying to find Ruby Quinones-Cabrera.

The girl has been missing since last Saturday.

Her mother, Maria Cabrera, desperately wants her child home.

She has left the hospital against her doctor's orders.

"The doctors told me I can't leave because of my heart problems," Maria Cabrera said. "It would be more dangerous for me to be out on the streets and I explain to them I'm a mother and I worry about my daughter."

Anyone with information is asked to call Reading police.
