Kennewick Police Report New Details in Sofia Juarez Case
Kennewick Police continue to investigate the case of a young Kennewick girl who went missing back in 2003. Sofia Juarez was abducted 18 years ago, one day before her 5th birthday.
The Police Department reports that were 75 people who called or left tips on the Sofia website.
According to a release from Kennewick Police:
A highly credible witness was identified. The witness observed a female matching Sofia’s description walking along the sidewalk on S. Washington Street near E. 15th Avenue. The observation corresponds to the approximate time that Sofia would have arrived on foot in that area. A person approached the young female and led her away as she cried. Our investigators have a detailed description of that person but are withholding it at this time for investigative purposes.
An occupied van was also observed stopped on a nearby side street. It is described as a light blue or silver (or gray), older 1970’s to early 1980’s full-sized panel van with no side windows. It had the appearance of being a work-type van, the type that contractors or painters may use. This is not to imply that it would have been a contractor or painter’s van.
Investigators are also following a tip on the Tik Tok app which shows a gal claiming to have been kidnapped years ago wanting to be back with her family.
The Kennewick Police Department is asking anyone who may have information to contact them at 509-628-0333. Or, contact special investigator Al Wehner at 509-582-1331. You can email Al at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
