Hilda Vanessa Sanaguaray-Upaya, was last seen at around 8 a.m. Jan. 27 near the Northgate Shopping Center at 91 Auburn St., where she ran away from family members, according to Lt. Robert Martin. She also goes by “Vanessa,” and sometimes uses the names “Valentina Diaz” and “Nelly Guaman,” on her social media accounts, he said.
