Ashley Renee Martinez was last seen at 12:00 P.M. on July 6, 2004. At that time, she was dropped off at the Krug Pool in the vicinity of St. Joseph Avenue and Krug Park in Saint Joseph, Missouri with her younger brother. When her mother came to get them later, only the brother was waiting; Ashley had disappeared.

Subsequent investigation showed that Ashley had left of her own accord. She had planned to run away to California with Christopher M. Hart. He is a 32-year-old living close to her home. He was on parole for second-degree assault and has also been convicted of drug possession, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest. He and Ashley were reportedly going to go to California.

Eleven days after Ashley’s disappearance, Hart was arrested in Olympia, Washington. He was arrested for purse-snatching. He gave the Washington officials a false name and as a result they did not know he was wanted in Missouri, so he was released.

On September 7, two months after Ashley’s disappearance, Hart was arrested again. He was arrested after Washington police discovered his true identity and the charges against him in Missouri. He had been staying with a cousin in the Olympia area.

Washington investigators found no sign of Ashley. Nor have they located the stolen gray 1995 Pontiac Bonneville with Missouri license plates numbered 377MPY, which she and Hart had allegedly been traveling in. Hart’s cousin said he had not seen Ashley or ever heard Hart mention her. Hart has refused to divulge any information whatsoever on Ashley’s whereabouts. He began acting bizarrely while in jail and was sent to the state mental hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Ashley may still be in the local area or she may be in the Kansas City, Missouri area. There is no evidence that she ever arrived in Washington. When she disappeared, she left behind all her personal belongings, including her medication and her three cats.

Ashley ran away from home once before, in 2001. But she did not leave the state and was only gone for about a day before returning home voluntarily. She was an eighth-grader at Robidoux Middle School at the time of her disappearance. Ashley’s case remains unsolved and is still classified as a runaway.

  1. The age progression shows her eyes as light blue, but the teen photo next to it, along with all the others, seem to show medium to dark brown eyes. Sometimes hazel eyes can look brown in photos, but light blue? It’s a bit odd and should be confirmed with family.
