Community Alert: Two Local Teens Missing

Yellow Line

Stockton, CA — Stockton Police Department has issued an urgent appeal to the public to assist in the search for two young teenagers, Aleyshia Haywood and Solana Santiago-McVey, who have been missing since Sunday afternoon.

The two teenagers, aged 14 and 16 respectively, were last seen leaving their homes at around 1 p.m. near the vicinity of Eighth and B streets, triggering community concern and a thorough police search.

Aleyshia Haywood, who is developmentally disabled, is a 14-year-old girl standing at 5 feet 3 inches and weighing 90 pounds. She was last seen wearing a yellow dress accompanied by a blue backpack. Her vulnerability makes the urgency of locating her even more critical.

Solana Santiago-McVey, at the same height but weighing 130 pounds, was also reported missing. Santiago-McVey was last spotted in a pink t-shirt, black shorts, a pink backpack, and carrying a large black trash bag.

Stockton Police noted a distinctive behavior of both girls—drawing on their faces—which could be a key identifier for the public in recognizing them. Adding to the complexity of the situation is the fact that neither teen has a cellphone, potentially complicating efforts to track their whereabouts through digital means.
