Oxnard police were asking for the public’s help on Tuesday in locating a 7-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted by her mother at an elementary school, authorities said.
The father of Nadine Basquez reported that his daughter had been picked up from Marina West School (map) by her biological mother around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, according to a news release from the Oxnard Police Department.
“The mother, Brenda Quiroz does not have parental custody rights per a court order and should not have contact with Nadine without the father’s consent,” the release stated.
Quiroz left with Nadine “by unknown means,” police said.
Officers and detectives were actively searching for the girl.
Anyone within information about the whereabouts of the mother and daughter was urged to immediately contact Oxnard police at 805-385-7600 or call 911.
