KIDNAPPING / PARENTAL ABDUCTION INVESTIGATION UPDATE:
•Children located SAFE by Utah State Highway Patrol•
We are extremely thankful to the public, the FBI, the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Riverside County Family Justice Center, Riverside County District Attorneys Office, and ESPECIALLY the very observant Trooper of the Utah State Highway Patrol for locating these two missing children. The babies are safe and in the protective custody of social services in Utah. Their return to California is currently being coordinated.
We will give our outstanding Domestic Violence Unit Detectives a well deserved break and will release further details tomorrow. Again, we thank everyone involved.
Last night on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., a victim mother and her live-in boyfriend were in a verbal and physical domestic altercation. The mother put her two small children to bed then temporary left the residence, located in the 3100 block of Grace Street in Riverside. She returned shortly before 11:00 p.m. and both the suspect boyfriend and children were gone.
Officers arrived and began their investigation in which they determined the boyfriend took the children without the mother’s consent, along with the children’s legal identification documents and other items. He told the mother he was going to a local business with the children but was never located, and never returned home. Based on the officers’ investigation, it is believed the boyfriend may travel to the state of Michigan with the mother’s children.
THE CHILDREN ARE DESCRIBED AS:
• DARLA YONKO, Hispanic female juvenile, approximately 18-months-old, 2’6” tall & 30 pounds, brown hair & brown eyes, last seen wearing a long-sleeved “footie pajamas,” purple with stars.
• EMMA YONKO, Hispanic female juvenile, approximately 8-months-old, 2’ tall & 18 pounds, brown hair & brown eyes, last seen wearing a long-sleeved “footie pajamas,” white with yellow lemons.
THE SUSPECT IS DESCRIBED AS:
• JOSHUA ADLE, Hispanic male adult, 24-years-old, 5’9” tall & 170 pounds, black hair & hazel eyes, mustache with thin beard, last seen wearing a dark colored sleeveless T-shirt.
THE SUSPECT’S VEHICLE IS:
• 1987 CADILLAC, 4-door, blue with white top, stock wired spoke wheels with thin white walled tires, missing the license plates. Although there are no license plates on the suspect vehicle, the actual plate should be California 2GGW196 with the last four numbers of the VIN of 8526.
