Representative Armando "Mando" Martinez would like to request the assistance of all citizens in finding Ivania Jasmin Sanchez, a 5-foot-3-inch tall Hispanic girl who weighs 165 pounds. Ivania was last seen in a gray sweater with a red and blue line bearing across the chest and sleeves, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. Ivania has a burn scar stretching from her inner right arm to the middle of her right chest area.

The alleged suspect is a 26 year old, Hispanic male, by the name of Felipe Martinez. He is approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a light blue pin-stripe work shirt, black work boots and blue jeans. The suspect is driving an extended cab pickup truck, early 80's model with a light blue stripe and chrome brush guard. At this time a license plate number is unavailable. Law enforcement officials believe the girl is in immediate danger. "When something like this happens I am saddened for the person kidnapped and the entire family, because there is an emptiness in this person's place and the life of the families." Martinez stated. "This is when us as citizens must pull together and assist in the cause with all the provided information we have."

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the individuals involved in the kidnapping should please contact the Mission Police Department at 956.584.5025.
