    IN - Jada Justice, 2, Gary, 16 June 2009

    UPDATE-this missing person has been found


    Police searched Wednesday for a missing Portage toddler while the relative who was baby sitting the child was taken into custody and being held as a person of interest.

    Hobart police said the missing girl, Jada Justice, is 2 years and 10 months old, 2-feet-2 inches tall, weighs about 35 pounds, and is African-American. She was last seen wearing an orange skirt and a striped shirt.

    The 18-year-old cousin who was watching Jada, Angelica Castillo, was in custody Wednesday at the Gary Police Department, Hobart police detective David Grissom said. He said Castillo may be charged with neglect.

    Cpl. Gabrielle King of the Gary Police said Wednesday the girl was last seen sitting in a car at Glen Park Gas at Ridge Road and Louisiana Street in Gary at about 9:30 p.m. Castillo told police she went into the gas station's convenience store to buy a gallon of milk and, upon her return to the car, discovered the toddler was missing.

    Jada's uncle, Mike Valdez, sought the help of the community in finding the missing girl who lives in Portage with her mom, Melissa Swointek of Portage and the girl's two brothers.

    He said a missing person report was filed with the Gary Police Department but the little girl's disappearance did not meet the criteria to issue an Amber Alert.

    As of this writing, police are still looking for a missing Portage toddler from who disappeared from a Gary gas station after her babysitter went inside for cigs and milk.

    Jada Justice, 3, was reportedly taken from a car Tuesday at Ridge Road and Louisiana Street, and police have hinted that neglect charges could be filed against the 18-year-old sitter, who's a relative, sources say.

    I heard about this on the news. Quite honestly, I think there is way more to the story and I think LE is right on top of it. I just feel that if LE is considering neglect charges on the 18-year-old so soon, then they don't really believe her version of events, KWIM?

    I also heard that they executed a search warrant on her house. I don't think they would do that if they really believed she was abducted from the car.

    Just my two cents!

    Left the baby in the car????? Who over the age of 10, doesn't know that's a dumb move? And doesn't Gary have a notoriously high crime rate to begin with?

    This just sickens me, I'm sorry.

    I'll shut up now until I have something worthwhile to contribute.

    Arrow Lots of case info in this article!

    [quote]But other customers told police they saw no one around Castillo's 1991 maroon Cadillac Fleetwood while it was parked in the lot.

    And police dogs brought into the search found no scent in the immediate area
    .[/quote]

    About 3:30 a.m., police called off the search and focused on Castillo. Hobart police obtained a search warrant for her home, where they found bloody crib sheets.
    Hobart investigators determined the blood came from a dog in heat, and shifted the investigation back to Gary. Police did find evidence of drug use at the house and members of the FBI-led Gang Response Investigative Team were at the home for a time Wednesday afternoon.
    Gary police also questioned Castillo's boyfriend, who complained he had suffered some serious burns recently.

    Police would not comment on the 23-year-old man's condition. He was released Wednesday.

    Where are our political leaders and LE to enforce better laws against child endangerment!
    Throw the book at these people who do not take proper care of children!
    This is getting worse every day.
    and to think these are only the ones that make the news.............
    so many more out there unreported!!!! IMO
    If this was happening somewhere else, our leaders would be helping (genicide etc)
    but in USA we save whales and not children.........MOO
    Kyron, HALEIGH, ADJI & Gabriel NEEDS PRAYERS NOW TO FIND THEM!. Zahra & Jonathan in heaven
    Justice for Hailey!!!!
    No Justice for Caylee Marie..........

    where was the mother? Why the babysitter?

    Valdez said his niece was staying with Castillo because Jada's mom had planned to go out of town with a boyfriend and was visiting friends.

    Jada's dad is Clarence Justice of Hammond.

    He said the couple, who have three children together, are not married
