SANTA ANNA, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The Santa Anna Police Department (SAPD) asked the community to help locate a woman who allegedly kidnapped a young boy from school recently.
According to a Facebook post from the SAPD, a 6-year-old boy was taken from his school without permission by 35-year-old Irene Henandez. Police say she was seen driving a cream colored 4-door sedan with a sunroof on school security footage.
The boy’s father reportedly showed documentation that he has ‘sole conservatorship’ of the 6-year-old. Multiple agencies and a Texas Ranger assisted in locating Hernandez.
Hernandez was not described as a parent in her Attempt to Locate flyer, but as ‘Non Custodial Kidnapping.’ She is described as 5 feet 7 inches in height, with black hair and brown eyes. No description was released for the kidnapped boy.
“The investigation is ongoing and concerns for the child’s welfare grows,” wrote SAPD.
Hernandez was arrested Friday evening on September 29.
