The California Highway Patrol has issued an Amber Alert for a 16-year-old Monterey County girl and a father and son accused of abducting her Saturday.
Eunice Serrato was abducted from San Ardo about 9:45 p.m. Saturday by Juan Manual Salazar Jr., 19, and Juan Salazar Sr., 39, according to an Amber Alert issued by the CHP.
The father and son were reportedly linked to a double-homicide early Sunday morning in San Ardo. Authorities told a television station the suspects may be headed south toward Mexico.
The three were last seen in a white, 4-door, 1990 Acura with a California license plate number of 4SAE963.
Serrato is described as Latino, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo reading “3/10/10” on her right middle finger, one that says “love” on her back and another that reads “vellen” on her upper right leg. She was last seen wearing a blue and white shirt, pink jacket, blue jeans and sandals.
Salazar Jr. is Latino, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, officials said. He may be wearing glasses.
“(Salazar) may also have a gunshot wound and should be considered armed and dangerous,” according to the CHP alert.
Salazar Sr.’s physical description is the same as his son’s, though he does not wear glasses.
No further details regarding the circumstances of the abduction or the relationship, if any, between the alleged victim and abductors was released.
Anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1 or the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office at 831-385-8312.
