Siler City -- An Amber Alert has been issued for a 14-year-old California girl.

The girl is believed to be in the company of two men, according to a Siler City Police Department release.

Authorities say the girl voluntarily ran away from her home and is not believed to be in danger.

Delia Marquez, 14, stands about 5-feet 2-inches tall. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police say Marquez is in the company of Luis Durate, also known as Gonzalez Tellado Pedro Warren, a 21-year-old Hispanic man from Siler City.

Marquez stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has a tattoo on his upper right arm.

Marquez and Durate were last known to be traveling in Vallejo, Calif., and are believed to be en route to Siler City. The car is a 1997 two-door red Pontiac Firebird with a North Carolina license plate number SSA2270.

A second Hispanic male, 49-year-old Gabriel Vasquez Altamirano, is believed to be accompanying them. Altamirano is described as short, heavy-set with gray hair.
