We regret to report that CHP Officers have notified LAPD's 77th Division Detectives that 15-year-old Dalvin Castillo was killed early this Sunday morning after being struck by several vehicles on the 110 Freeway near Manchester Avenue, at around 5:30 a.m. CHP Officers realized late Sunday evening that the unidentified victim from the freeway accident was in fact Dalvin after hearing the LAPD's missing person broadcast.**

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in locating 15-year-old Dalvin Castillo and 19-year-old Jose Rodriguez.

Dalvin and Jose were last seen at about 1:00 a.m., at their group home located at 1720 West 82nd Street. Caretakers believed that both Jose and Dalvin wandered off during the night through an open front gate.

Jose is a male Hispanic, 6 feet tall, weighs 190 pounds and was wearing dark blue pajamas. Jose also has the mental capacity of a 2-year-old.
