Hollywood - On Monday, March 6, 2000, at approximately 2:20 p.m., Hollywood officers responded to a possible kidnapping in the 5400 block of Harold Way. Upon arrival the officers were met by Sandy Vega. Ms. Vega informed the officers that at approximately 1:30 p.m., she had gone to the store with a friend known only as "Skittles."

Chamberlain Cotton is described as a female, White, reddish hair, brown eyes, 5-8, 155 pounds, and 21 years of age. She has a possible tattoo of winnie the pooh on her left thigh. She was last seen wearing a pink blouse and blue jeans.

Cari Ann Gleason is described as a female, White, 5-4, thin build, with corn rows in her hair, 18 years of age. She was last seen wearing a blue sweat jacket with hood, black jeans, white shirt and canary yellow shoes.

The victim is Johnny Michelle Vega, 6 months old, last seen wearing a green top with diapers.
