A woman in Devine, Texas, was kidnapped from her home on Fox Run Drive on Sunday morning. Authorities say Jessica Sanchez was taken by her ex-boyfriend after he climbed through her window and forced her to leave at gunpoint, using her car to escape the area.
According to family members, Jessica’s three children were in the home at the time of the kidnapping. They were put into the laundry during the abduction and a warning shot was fired into a wall to keep them away.
A ping from Jessica’s phone lead them to her vehicle, which was located near the railroad tracks and old silos in Pearson- less than 10 miles from her home. Once the vehicle was located, they forced entry and found that it had abandoned. Her phone and person items were found inside.
Jessica’s ex-boyfriend has been identified as Jorge Jaramillo. They had been together for 7 years and separated on Memorial Day after an “incident” occured, according to a KENS5 quote from Jessica’s brother-in-law.
On Sunday local athorities attempted to locate Jessica and Jaramillo by helicopter, by foot, and with the use of scent dogs. They were unable to locate either of them though. They are now asking the public for their help.
Since dogs and helicopters were unable to locate the two, the police believe that someone picked them up in the area the car was found.
It is said that Jaramillo has ties to Michigan, specifically the Hart and Detroit area. He is considered armed and dangerous. Do not approach him.
