ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Mayor R.J. Berry announced on Twitter Tuesday that he will now be offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for abducting a 3-year-old girl in Albuquerque.
Investigators describe the suspect who abducted Coraline Leon-Alcocar as 5’11” to 6′ tall, about 190-200 pounds with short brown hair, possibly Hispanic. He was wearing a black puffy jacket and jeans. They are currently looking for two men, an abductor and another man wearing an Oakland Raiders jacket. The man in the jacket is being sought for questioning.
The mayor is saying to call 242-Cops with any information.
This reward is offered after 3-year-old Coraline Leon-Alcocar was taken from the Smith’s near Lomas and San Pedro on Saturday. Police say her mother was filling up water jugs when a thief jumped in the car and drove off with it. Coraline was inside at the time.
That car was found by officers at the Saver’s near Carlisle and Menaul, but the little girl was not in it, sparking an Amber Alert and a citywide search.
Coraline was found just after 1 a.m. in a parking lot near San Mateo and Indian School. She is expected to be okay.
