Amber Alerts and missing children cases: Elvia Flores found, will charges be filed?
Elvia Flores was the subject of an Amber Alert after her friend told California Highway Patrol officers that the two had been abducted by four of five Hispanic men. After several days of an investigation, Elvia Flores’ status shifted from an Amber Alert to an endangered missing child. Now, the 14-year-old girl is accused of running off with her boyfriend.
Police found Flores walking down an alley in Gridley, California. Elvia’s boyfriend, Hugo Anzures, 18, has since been arrested and taken into custody. He faces charges of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and concealing a juvenile. Elvia’s girlfriend lied to police, regarding the kidnapping. It is possible that both girls may face charges as well.
The case has been handed to the Glenn County Sheriff’s Department.
