    Police say that after assaulting her mother, Garcia drugged the girl and drove her to a house in Compton where he locked her in a garage.

    Over the coming months, police say he provided the girl with fake identification and used physical and emotional abuse to prevent her from fleeing.

    She called police after she found her sister on FB.

    Garcia's been arrested and charged, so this story has legs.

    There's a person out there in OC who has been missing 10 years, and they have come home.....

    Is it appropriate to speculate as to her identity, or should we not do that?

    Not sure as she was a minor at the time of the abduction poor thing

    Also wondering if it is in bad taste as the media has not released her name. As well there is a young child invloved that she gave birth to in 2012....may this pain bring this woman some strength xo.

    There is nothing on Namus for a missing 15 year old in 2004. Why wasn't she listed?

    In 2004, when the victim was 15, Garcia was dating her mother and lived with the family, authorities said. The mother suspected that he was sexually abusing her daughter, police said..

    ....repeatedly told the victim that her family had stopped searching for her and that they would be deported if she tried to leave, the statement said. They also moved frequently to avoid being found, police said.

    I'm hesitant to do much sleuthing on the original case despite my strong curiosity...IMHO this young woman should be in charge of her identity for the first time in a long time. If she wants to say her name, she will.

    Unless LE releases her name we should hold off trying to find out. There must be some reason for them not to release it.
