Seen her?UPDATE: Arrested in New York more than a year later.

State Police are looking for a Winthrop woman on charges she ran down a Revere man this past Dec. 31, then fled.

Milena Johana Henao Giraldo, also known as Milena Henao, allegedly smashed into George Azarian, 61, as he tried to cross Ocean Avenue at Shirley Avenue, then just kept driving.

At one point, investigators actually were in the same room with the woman, but at that point they did not realize she was the alleged driver.

According to Suffolk County DA Dan Conley, the accident was caught on tape by a city surveillance camera, but officials could not determine its plate number:

"Where high technology failed, old-fashioned detective work carried the day," Conley said. "For weeks on end, State Police detectives canvassed three cities and towns to find this vehicle and its driver." On Feb. 7, detectives arrived at the home of a Winthrop woman who had such a vehicle registered in her name. They spoke to the woman's daughter, who said that the car was at an East Boston garage having its speedometer repaired. Giraldo, a friend of the daughter, was present at the time of the interview."

After the interview, however, Giraldo took a cab to the garage, picked up the car and fled. Officials say the car was really Giraldo's, but that her friend's mother had registered the car to help the young woman save on insurance.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the State Police Suffolk County Detective Unit at 617-727-8817.

Now that summer is in full force, the local beach has a growing population of family groups, and collections of teens. The parents are here to watch their children discover the beach. Play in the sand, dig to china, doing battle with the waves, just being a child. For summer is the best of times to be a child. The days are open to explore the world, to increase their understanding of life. Full of unstructured play, if they are lucky, over structured schedules if not. In a way, I think these children are the lucky ones. Some one cares enough about them to let them do nothing for a time. As yet, the visitors do not outnumber the seagulls, but that time might come.

Barry means it literally: While he was settling in to watch some forgettable movie, two guys got into an argument over cell-phone use and one of them made a point by setting off a stink bomb.

The reason he was in the forgettable movie? All the "unsupervised ten year olds in gangsta gear ... running wild everywhere" had taken over the theater showing the movie he wanted to see.
