Maria has been living on the streets since she left her last foster home a few years ago. Panhandling and doing odd jobs managed to get her by most of the time. On days when they didn't, and the hunger built, the girl only reluctantly turned to other means of staying fed. Most of her days since running away have been spent living in squats in the slums, or sometimes pooling money with others for a meager apartment.
She hasn't been seen in a couple of months, and those on the street might have caught rumors of a few hoods that were looking for her. Though specifics on the matter seem difficult to come by.
