A missing 17-year-old Suisun City girl was found safe at a residence in Vallejo this afternoon. Christina Almanza was found safe at a home in the 100 block of Bolton Way, Solano County sheriff’s Lt. Gary Faulkner said. An aggressive dog at the residence was shot in the recovery operation, Faulkner said. Two people, described as investigative leads, were detained, Faulkner said. The FBI, California Highway Patrol, Solano County Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office, U.S. Marshal’s Service and Suisun City Police Department were all involved in the investigation, according to Faulkner.
The Solano County Sheriff’s Office received a report about a missing girl at 12:40 p.m. Thursday, he said. That information was based on a voicemail Almanza left on a family member’s cell phone. Almanza said she was being held hostage by numerous male suspects, Faulkner said. The suspected abduction apparently happened around 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to a statewide Amber Alert issued today by the California Highway Patrol.
Almanza was last seen driving a navy blue Oldsmobile Silhouette and was possibly was being held against her will with three other juvenile females by multiple male suspects, according to the Amber Alert. Suisun City police were expected to release more information about the case this afternoon, Faulkner said.
