NORTH LAS VEGAS – North Las Vegas police are looking for two suspects who kidnapped a 3-year-old girl.
Police say Carla Espinosa-Alvarez was abducted from her foster home near Commerce Street and West Lone Mountain Road Sunday evening.
Carla’s foster mother told police that at about 9:30 p.m., a masked man and woman entered her home. The man held her at gunpoint while the female suspect searched the home, specifically looking for Carla. She located the child upstairs and carried her out of the house.
The suspects are described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes. They were dressed in all black with brown masks or bandanas over their faces. They both spoke fluent Spanish.
Carla is described as a Hispanic female, 3 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 50 pounds, with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Four of her top front teeth are silver-capped and visible when she smiles.
Carla was last seen wearing a pink short sleeved pajama shirt and pink pajama pants.
Detectives want to speak to Carla’s biological mother, Maria Espinosa-Alvarez, a 30-year-old Mexican National. She is believed to live in Mexico and has made threats to take Carla out of this foster home.
Witnesses reported seeing a suspicious white luxury sedan with dark tinted windows driving in the area just before to the kidnapping.
Anyone with information about this abduction is asked to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
Police say this case does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.
