SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — The Santa Ana Police Department put out a critical missing person alert Tuesday night for a 29-year-old woman.
According to police, Sulman Lleana Carrillo, was last seen wearing a black jacket, white long-sleeve shirt, black leggings and athletic style shoes.
Carrillo was described by police as a 5-foot-3 Hispanic female with brown hair and green eyes.
Roman Carrillo, her husband, and his family were putting up missing posters Tuesday night in the area where she was last seen — desperately hoping to find his wife and mother of their two children, ages 5 and 2.
She was reported missing by her family members and loved ones. Carrillo was last seen on security tape from a neighbor’s camera Monday at about 8 a.m. walking westbound along a sidewalk in the 1300 block of West Chestnut Street in Santa Ana headed to her daughter’s school. Her husband said she planned to walk the 1.5 miles for exercise.
“It was actually one of the few times she walked alone,” he said. “Otherwise it’s myself, or she takes her dog with her.”
Carrillo’s husband said it was not like his wife to miss their daughter’s morning assembly to watch as the kindergartner received a special award. And when he didn’t hear from her all day, he said he left work as soon as he could and returned home, but his wife was nowhere to be found.
He retraced what he thought were her steps and found her purse and wallet left behind, but believed she took her cell phone with her.
“I went through our account and phone bill,” he said. “There was no call sent, no texts sent that day. Anytime myself or my mom would try to reach out, it went straight to voicemail.”
He then called Verizon and they told him they pinged her phone to a street 1.5 miles away, in the opposite direction, 10 minutes after the video was taken.
“I hope this goes out to everyone,” Carrillo’s husband said. “Put yourself in my shoes, and I would do the same thing for you guys.”
Anyone with information about Carrillo was asked to call Detective A. Garcia at 714-245-8408.
