Mother of missing 15-year-old: 'Don't hurt her'

Tuesday, July 16, 2013 - 9:11am

A family was desperately searching for their 15-year-old loved one who's been missing for nearly a week.

"Bring her to us in one piece. Don't bring her back in a box. We don't need her in a box," said Aunt Crystal Rodriguez.

A family was heartbroken after enduring six long days without their loved one.

"Bring back my little girl because I don't want this anymore," said Grandmother Juanita Cazares.

The 15-year-old was last seen at her home on Garibay Court and Lee Boulevard just before 1 a.m. on July 10. Her family said her boyfriend, 17-year-old Geronimo Benavidez, crawled in this window and forced her to leave.

"He took her by her hair and he made her go," said Mother Yvette Rodriguez.

Since then, her family has been searching everywhere.

"People call to give us tips, so all of us go out there and look for her," said Yvette Rodriguez.

Her mother said a short call from her daughter a few days ago only deepened their fears.

"She was crying and she said, 'Mommy, mommy he's hitting me. He's hitting me,'" said Yvette Rodriguez.

But all she could do was listen helplessly on the other line.

Her family is begging for Jessica’s safe return.

"Just bring her safe to me. Don't hurt her. Please don't hurt my daughter no more. She doesn't deserve this. She's too young," said Yvette Rodriguez.

Police said Cazares and Benavidez could be in the Socorro, Lower Valley area or in El Paso County.

If you have information, call the El Paso Police Department at (915) 832-4400. You can also call Yvette Rodriguez at (915) 496-5862 or Juanita Cazares at (915) 691-4578.
