Family of toddler, Lesley Estefania Perez, is desperate to find her. They’ve put up posters in convenience stores and restaurants, hoping someone knows where she's at and brings her back safely.
The toddler’s uncle, Jorge Perez, hasn't stopped putting up poster signs with Lesley’s picture and personal information. He started last night and has continued throughout the day.
Lesley is 4 years old, about 3 ½ feet tall, weighs about 40 pounds, has brown eyes and brown hair.
Perez says Lesley was playing on an empty field across the street from her house with a group of children last night when they saw a White Ford F-150 pick-up truck circling the neighborhood.
Apparently, the truck came back, drove on the field and headed towards the children. Perez says the man in the truck grabbed Lesley by the hair. Lesley’s older sister tried to hold on to her little sister but the man hit her on the head. He took Lesley, threw her inside the truck and drove off.
Lesley’s aunt tells us the family has no idea who may have taken the little girl. She says the family doesn't know of anyone that may want to harm them.
If anyone knows anything about Lesley’s kidnapping. You’re asked to call the Hidalgo Police Department at: (956) 843-6460 or (956) 843-8426.
