UPDATE: Markita Ashley Hardison has returned home unharmed.

The Baltimore County Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a female missing from the Middle River area.

Markita Ashley Hardison is a 25-year-old black female.  She is five feet tall, weighs 165 pounds, has brown eyes, and shoulder length black hair that is pulled back.  She should be wearing a brown coat with fur around the hood, dark jeans, black Converse shoes, and carrying a black leather purse.

Markita Ashley Hardison was last seen at 5:30 p.m. today in the unit block of Gravelo Circle in Middle River 21220.  She may have left the area of Gravelo Circle in a silver Jeep brand vehicle with two subjects.  No further information is available on the Jeep vehicle or the subjects in the vehicle.

Anyone with information on Markita Ashley Hardison is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Schools re-open January 2, 2014 and Baltimore County police will be on the lookout over the next few weeks for drivers who pass school buses that are stopped to pick up or discharge students. Drivers put County children at risk for serious injury or death when passing a stopped school bus.

Maryland law states that vehicles must come to a complete stop on both sides of the street if there is no physical divider or barrier. Drivers may not pass the bus until all lights have ceased flashing.

  • Drivers passing school buses while the lights are flashing will be fined $570 and issued a 3-point penalty on their record.
  • Drivers who stop but then proceed while the lights are flashing will be fined $570 and a 2-point penalty will be charged.
  • If an accident occurs after the driver has stopped then proceeds to pass the bus, he or she will be fined $610 and will be charged 3-points.

Police will be patrolling throughout the County and will ticket drivers who do not obey. When a driver is pulled over, officers will check to see if the person has a valid operator’s license. The vehicle’s registration will be checked as well to see if there are any outstanding tickets. If a driver has a revoked or suspended license, he or she will be taken into custody.

Children don’t always pay attention when crossing the street. Be a responsible driver and stop when a school bus is loading and unloading students.

On December 24 at 7:45 p.m., personnel from the Baltimore County Police and Fire Departments responded to a single-vehicle accident at Hyde Park Road and South Marlyn Avenue.

Crash investigators concluded that a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette was traveling northbound on Hyde Park Road when the car left the roadway, overturned, then struck a tree. The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. No one else was inside the car.

The driver was identified as Jerome Matthew Ziemski, 32, of the 500-block of Cranford Road, 21221. The cause of the accident has yet to be determined; the investigation is continuing at this time.
