Sacramento deputies seek help finding 3-year-old allegedly abducted by mother

The girl, Crystal Rojas, was reported missing from a daycare facility on the 5200 block of Elkhorn Boulevard about 10 a.m., said sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos. Employees told deputies the girl went missing shortly after a visit from her mother, Patti Rojas, who is not the girl's legal guardian, Ramos said.

Deputies now believe that Patti Rojas, 24 and pictured at right, took her daughter and headed to Nevada, Ramos said. They do not believe the girl to be in any danger, but consider her "at-risk" because of her young age, Ramos said.

Ramos said sheriff's officials are working with Nevada authorities on the case. Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff's Department at (916) 874-5115.
