March 15, 2014 (Los Angeles) – The California Highway Patrol has issued a statewide Amber Alert for four children abducted in Los Angeles today. The suspects may be driving a dark-colored Chrysler PT cruiser with paper plates and a missing hubcab. Police believe they may be headed for San Diego or Mexico.
The suspects are Enrique Felix, 28, and Rose Chiarez, 28. They are suspected of abducting their four children: Enrique, 7, Justin, 5, and twins Veronica and Janeth.
The couple had a history of violence which is why the children were placed in custody of their grandmother and a restraining order issued. The parents took the children by force from their grandmother’s home. The children are believed to be in danger, authorities have said.
To report sightings call 911, or the Los Angeles Police Department at 323-342-4101 or 877-ASK-LAPD.
