Fresno police say a 2-year-old girl who was in the care of her aunt may have been abducted by her parents early Saturday, and they’re asking for the public’s help to find her.
Allison Sanchez was asleep at her aunt’s home near Washington Avenue and 7th Street in southeast Fresno when she was taken sometime between 3 and 7 a.m. Saturday.
Police Chief Jerry Dyer said investigators believe her parents, Juan Guzman, 22, and Betsabet Martinez, 21, may have removed the girl.

The parents do not have legal rights to have the child and may be preparing to leave the country, and investigators found evidence the parents had made preparations to leave Fresno. Dyer said because Guzman is from Mexico, he may be taking his daughter south of the border.
Allison originally was removed from her home near McKenzie Avenue and 7th Street on Feb. 11 after a disturbance was heard, Dyer said. When police arrived at the residence, gun casings were found outside of the residence.
Police searched the home and found firearms, scales to measure drugs and residues on the scales. Police believe the house was used for drug dealing.
Her parents were arrested and booked into Fresno County Jail and Allison was taken by Fresno County Child Protective Services. However, her parents posted bond the next day.
Guzman has a criminal record, Dyer said. Allison’s parents may be driving a silver, four-door 2005 Toyota Corolla with tinted windows, California license plate 6VMU658.
Allison is described as about 3 feet, 6 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes and weighing about 60 pounds. She is believed to be wearing a gray pullover hoodie sweater with pink/purple interior, black and white dress with pink tutu, pink shoes with black stripes. She may be carrying a “Blue Rainbow” My Little Pony stuffed animal with a rainbow-colored mane.
