Brother, sister still missing after 7 weeks
Ceres police have had no luck in finding a brother and sister who disappeared nearly two months ago in Ceres.

Ceres Police Detective Art Hively does not believe the siblings have fallen victim to foul play but believes somebody is hiding them from their parents.

Jasmine Hogan, 17, and Kenneth Hogan, 16, ran away from home on Nov. 2, said Hively, because their parents were planning to move them to Gilroy and they didn't want to leave Ceres.

"We want to achieve our due diligence and find them but here's the strange thing ... the problem is we're getting no response from the parents now," said Hively. He is unsure if the parents have moved or are still in Ceres.

The teens were living with their parents in the 1500 block Leavitt Peak Court. Since their disappearance police checked out a friend's residence on Moonlight but a resident there said she hadn't seen the children since Nov. 2. Both have dropped out of their respective schools, Central Valley and Argus high schools.

"They're staying with somebody obviously hiding them out from their parents," said Hively.

Anyone who has information on the whereabouts of the Hogans is urged to call Det. Hively at 538-5728.
