    any more info? is there any topics about her case on this site?

    Anyone know where i can watch the Unsolved Mysteries episode 45 (Aired: January 24, 1990 ) this episode featured this little girl on it. I really love to watch it anyone knows where to download or get copies of episodes?


    "The dead girl, by all accounts, was outgoing and friendly. "She always made us laugh," recalled her uncle, Jesus Hernandez, 20, brother of the mother and the designated family spokesman."

    The girl was believed to have been playing outside the building when she was apparently abducted. Her mother was inside washing clothing.

    Leticia was one of seven children, several of whom were born in Mexico, relatives said; she was born in California. The dead girl's father, Rodolfo Martinez, is a farm worker in the Sacramento area. A dozen or so relatives live at the family's apartment.

    "Tita is gone now, but we will never forget her; she is always in our hearts," said Victoria Gonzalez, the girl's grandmother, who sat on a couch below a life-sized picture of young Leticia, the child's hair braided smartly to the side, a playful smile on her lips."

    Missing Girl's Family Prays for One Gift
    December 20, 1989|YOLANDA RODRIGUEZ | TIMES STAFF WRITER



    Leticia Hernandez wants to be a model when she grows up. She is also a timid and mothering 7-year-old who braided her own hair for the school photograph that has been reproduced and distributed all over Oceanside and neighboring communities.

    She never wandered away from home. Her mother, sister, uncle or grandmother always knew where she was. But now, they wonder where she is and pray they will see her soon.

    Sadly, no one has seen Leticia since Saturday afternoon.

    "She's my only sister," said Maria Hernandez, 16, in the family's kitchen. "Every time I look at her picture, I start crying."

    The family's life is centered on worry and wonder.

    http://articles.latimes.com/keyword/leticia-hernandez


    she seems like a sweet and beautiful little girl, very caring, friendly and sweet little girl. She was a lovely 2nd grader who loved school and her teachers and caring for her fellow classmates, she braded her own hair in that school class photo (pictured).

    I am looking for original articles/newspapers of that times that have articles of this case, with a photo in the article of Leticia. I want to find everything about this case, like is there a place where i can obtain original archive newspapers/articles of Leticia. I am not from USA I am from Australia.

    Organizers Hope to Fill Reward Coffers to Aid Search for Oceanside Girl : Kidnaping: It's been nearly seven months since Leticia Hernandez was abucted. Many sightings have been reported, but police are still seeking tips to help locate the 7-year-old girl.
    July 15, 1990|BONNA M. DE LA CRUZ | TIMES STAFF WRITER

    Nearly seven months have passed since 7-year-old Leticia Hernandez was abducted from her family's Oceanside apartment. Since then, law enforcement agencies across the country have linked forces in their intense search for the young girl, who is now believed to be in northern Florida.

    While law officers nationwide continue their investigations, organizers are planning a July 25 benefit at the U.S. Grant Hotel on Broadway. They hope to bring in $100,000 to fill the coffers of the Leticia Hernandez Reward Fund.

    "If we can raise that amount of money and offer it as a reward, it is hoped someone with knowledge of the kidnapers or their whereabouts will come forward with information that will help us bring Leticia home," said Oceanside Officer Chris McDonough, a detective who has been involved with the case since its beginning. McDonough is also chairman of San Diegans for the Return of Leticia Hernandez, created about six weeks ago.

    Police say the last sighting of the kidnaped girl was May 22 at a gas station in High Springs, Fla. Leticia was seen with a white man and a white woman, who have been described by witnesses throughout Leticia's travels eastward.

    Florida sightings have included the following in the northwestern part of the state: Panama City on Jan. 2, Branford on Jan. 5, Chattahoochee from Jan. 1 to Jan. 10, Quincy from March 11 to March 23, Greensboro on March 26, Marianna and Cottondale on March 31, Santa Re River near Branford on April 30, and Waldo on May 5.
