Police Seek Foster Child Taken By Her Biological Mother

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police were looking for a 6-year-old foster child who was taken from her Reseda-area school by her biological mother.

Search Continues For 6-Year-Old Kelly Funes, KNX 1070’s Pat Haslam reports.

Kelly Funes is described as 3 feet tall, 45 pounds, Latina with brown hair and brown eyes.

Police said she was dropped off Friday morning by her foster parent at Cantara Street Elementary School.

Crystabel Funes, who is her biological mother, apparently forged the foster parent’s signature and took the child from the school, police said.

Kelly was last seen wearing navy blue pants, a white shirt and black headband. She was also carrying a black and pink “Barbie” backpack.

Crystabel Funes was described as a 29-year-old Latina, with brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She was last seen wearing a royal blue shirt, blue jeans skirt, with sunglasses. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail.

Anyone with information about Kelly Funes was urged to contact the LAPD’s West Valley Station at (818) 756-8861.

    I made a mistake taking kelly fromschool. I regret putting my daughter in the media and I. Want only to be able to reunite with my loving daughter. I am never going to do what I did I am trying to earn the courts forgiveness and dcfs has pput strict rules also? I’m paying for my actions but inn the end kelly has paid the most. She has been placed. In foster care it is painful waitting for her to be returned to my arms. Kelly has me and. I have her and we belonng together. I hope this doesn’t happen to any other mom!

      DAVE .. thanks for taking time to comment.
      Unfortunately you only read the negative part. you dont have all the facts to make an educated comment on me or my motherly skills. In the future maybe you should wait to hear all the facts then if you still feel like shaming me, then i will gladly accept your shame comment. But since you dont have basis to make this comment..i dont accept it or let it affect my life. Good day DAVE.
