Biological Father Wanted for Child Abduction
Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department Hollenbeck Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating 2-year-old Edwin Vargas, taken by his biological father.
On Friday March 23, 2014, around 6:30 a.m., Hollenbeck patrol officers responded to a radio call of a “Possible Kidnapping” at the 1000 block of Lorena Street.
When the officers arrived they were met by the mother of the child who told them that her ex-boyfriend, suspect Abraham Vargas had taken their child and vehicle.
