**UPDATE: Cassandra Garza has been found safe**

A 15-year-old girl from Ripon, Wis. was reported endangered missing on Monday, and has since been seen in the Tucson, Ariz. area.

The girl, Cassandra Maria Garza, was traveling with Talin Ross, who was taken into custody near Phoenix Tuesday morning. Ross had a felony warrant for sexual assault of a child under the age of 16.

Police say they have reason to believe Garza is using a fake Arizona ID card that identifies her as 18-year-old "Sage Salvador."

The Ripon Police Department is working with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to distribute information across the Tuscon area.

Garza is described as a white female, 5 ft. 5 in. tall, 220 pounds with blue eyes and blonde hair. She wears blue glasses, has a nose piercing and is identified by a scar on her left leg.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ripon Police Department at (920) 748-2888.
