Joliet was with her foster mother at William J. McAdam Park at 30th Street East and Avenue R when she was abducted by a Hispanic male. The abductor fled with Joliet in a red or maroon 1989 Buick Regal with the license plate number 2MFC968.
Authorities arrested the male kidnapping suspect, Jose Martinez, at 6:00 p.m. that same day, and charged him with child stealing. He did not have Joliet with him when he was apprehended. He told police he gave the baby to her biological mother, Maria Ayala. Joliet was born addicted to narcotics and was taken from her mother at birth as a result.
A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for Maria on September 12, 2006. An FBI Unlawful Flight To Avoid Prosecution warrant was issued for Maria on July 17, 2007. Joliet and Maria may be travelling in a black 2000 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with the California license plate number 7D92423, or a blue four-door 1995 Mercury Marquis with the license plate number 5RSK813. Joliet and Maria may be in Mexico.
