    WHITTIER -- Police are looking for a 13-year-old girl who was taken from her home by her uncle Friday night.

    Authorities issued an Amber Alert for Cynthia Irene Hernandez. Police say the girl's uncle, Juan Cuella Hernandez, took the child from the home in the 6300 block of Pickering Avenue around 7 p.m. after an argument with the girl's mother over child care.

    Police say Cynthia is asthmatic and does not have her medication with her.

    Juan Hernandez may be armed with a handgun.

    Cynthia is Hispanic, 5-11, 240 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink t-shirt, blue jean shorts, white shoes and brown plastic rim eye glasses.

    Juan Hernandez is 45 years-old, 5-10, 240 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing gray slacks and a green long sleeve button up shirt. He has tattoos of the letter "B" on his left and right upper chest and a tower on his left upper arm.

    The two may be in a black 1994 Chevrolet Silverado two-door pick-up truck with a California license plate of 8N84118. The vehicle's hood is faded gray.

    Anyone with information can contact the Whittier Police Department at (562) 945-8249.

    Okay - I sincerely doubt this young woman is 5'11" and 240 pounds - especially because the uncle weighs 240.... kwim?

    An arguement over child care? What does that say too you?

    I hope they are found quickly AND IF, I do say IF the arguement was because the Uncle thought mom's childcare was inadequate, I hope the Uncle has the good sense to turn himself in right away. IF this abduction was for any other reason, I pray it was not to harm the girl.

    Prayers she is found quickly and returned to authorities for safe keeping!

    Here's an article that has pictures of both Cynthia and the Uncle: http://www.salem-news.com/articles/a...ier_8-1-09.php


    Here's a video and article with more info: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...les&id=6943588

    It does say the uncle did not think the mother was providing appropriate care. But is also says the uncle is a parolee, violent and possibly armed. He forced the girl into his truck - meaning she did not want to go with him.

    I hope they are found soon!
