A Seminole County, Fla., teenager is missing, and authorities are asking the public for help in locating her.  Samantha Reyes, 14, was last seen Sunday afternoon at her home in Apopka.  The 5 ft. tall, 100 pound girl was wearing a red shirt with gym shorts and a black belt and has two tattoos — a nautical star on her wrist and a tribal-style heart on her right ankle. Police say she may be traveling with two men; Rodolfo Garcia, 23, and Ramon Trejo, 47.  Garcia, according to investigators, is Reyes’ boyfriend, of whom her mother, Sandy Reyes, disapproves.  Trejo is Garcia’s uncle. Both men have criminal histories which include arrests for drug violation and burglary.  The trio are thought to be traveling in a burgundy, 1998, Honda Civic stolen from a car dealer in Apopka on Saturday. The license plate number is NA269K.  Authorities say they may be headed to Atlanta, or Texas where Trejo has connections.  Anyone with knowledge of Reyes’ whereabouts is urged to call the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office at 407-665-6650.
