Her family thought she ran away but the reality was so much worse… now that she is found the truth comes out!
In January, Alinka Castaneda, a teenager residing in Los Angeles, was reported missing, causing immense distress to her family who had not received any news from her for months.
As per official reports from the police, Castaneda was last spotted entering an unfamiliar vehicle on South Carodale Avenue in the early hours of January 1. This was after she left her residence in Carson, California, leaving her family in a state of distress as they had no news of her whereabouts for months.
Obtained from a doorbell camera nearby, footage shows a man approaching Castaneda just moments before she went missing.
At first, the family thought that Castaneda might have voluntarily left home, but as time went by, they became more convinced that this was not the case. Then, the family received a phone call from Castaneda.
“According to Moses Castillo, a retired detective and a private investigator working on the case, the family received a phone call from Castaneda, where she shared that she didn’t know where she was and was not allowed to leave. Castillo stated that she sounded like she was under duress and distress.” He also revealed that they were dealing with a case of kidnapping, and the suspect was an adult man already known to the police. However, Castillo didn’t provide any further details about the case at the time.
Police categorized Castaneda as a “critical missing juvenile” and asked for the public’s assistance in finding her due to the concern for her safety and well-being.
To seek assistance from the public and gain any information regarding the case, a reward of $100,000 was offered. Fortunately, this led to the suspects being located by the police and the teenager being rescued.
After almost three months, Castadena has been reunited with her family.
It remains unknown whether any arrests have been made.
We are glad this teenager is home and safe.
