Amber Alert Issued After Mother and Child Kidnapped in Porterville

Authorities have issued an Amber Alert after one year old Deleyza Ceron and her biological mother Maria Sanchez Palomares were kidnapped after being assaulted at a Porterville residence at approximately 2pm this afternoon (July 7th).

The suspects are Valentin Angel Villasenor and Juan Santos Martinez. According to ABC 30, Villasenor is in a dating relationship with Palomares, but neither suspect is a biological father to Deleyza.

After assaulting Palomares, the suspects forced the mother and daughter into a mid-’90s white Chevrolet or GMC SUV with unknown Washington license plates. The rear window is broken out and covered with white tape. The left rear window is inoperative and in the down position.

One year old Deleyza Ceron is 2’11”, 40 lbs with black hair and brown eyes. Palomares is a 22-year-old Hispanic female with brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5’7″ and weighs 200 lbs.

Villasenor is a 20-year-old Hispanic male, standing 5’6″. He has black hair, a black mustache, and brown eyes.

Martinez is a 40-year-old 5’6″ Hispanic male, with black hair and brown eyes.

ABC 30 reports that the suspects may still be in the Porterville area, or potentially in or en route to Riverside County, specifically the Perris area. Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous.

If you spot them, please contact Porterville police at 559-782-7400.
