Missing: Chioma Gray ~ $5,000 Reward
A private organization, the Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation, is offering a $5,000 reward for the safe return of Chioma Gray, an Oxnard teen missing since December.
Police and the FBI say Andrew Joshua Tafoya disappeared with 15-year-old Chioma Gray to Mexico seven months after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with her. Tafoya was named in a federal criminal complaint for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution after being charged in December with child stealing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and car theft, according to the FBI. A $5,000 reward also will be paid for information leading to Tafoya's arrest and conviction.
Gray's family and friends have not heard from her since she disappeared. Authorities ask anyone with information on the case to contact the FBI at (310) 477-6565 or Ventura police at (805) 339-4400. [SOURCE]
