CHP: Antioch Girl Abducted at Gunpoint Found Safe, Suspect in Custody
The California Highway Patrol cancelled a statewide Amber Alert Friday after a 7-year-old girl, who was reportedly abducted at gunpoint by a man outside her home in Antioch, was found safe.
Natalie Calvo was taken from the driveway of her home around 6:45 p.m. by a man who allegedly followed the girl and her mother home from a Walmart in the East Bay city, according to Highway Patrol officers.
According to a tweet from the CHP, her alleged abductor was also taken into custody.
Her alleged abductor was earlier described as an Asian man, between 40 and 50 years old.
Officers said he may be armed with a black, long gun. The man was last seen leaving Calvo’s home in a 1990s gold four-door Toyota Camry.
There was no further information given Friday night about the man’s identity or whether he was in fact armed.
Antioch is located in Contra Costa County just east of San Francisco and Oakland.
Anyone with information about the case was asked to contact Antioch Police at 925-778-2441.
The CHP initially reported the getaway vehicle was a Honda. The story has been updated to reflect the revised information.
