Eagle Rock Woman Missing, Believed Kidnapped

March 9, 2006

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding a missing 39-year-old woman, and the man believed to have kidnapped her from her home in Eagle Rock.

Mariann Aleman, 39, has not been seen since 10:15 on the morning of March 6, 2006, when Isaias Hernandez, 33, drove away with her in his red BMW convertible. Police in Fontana found Hernandez’s car abandoned on Tuesday, March 7.

Detectives now fear that Aleman is in danger and a kidnap victim. Hernandez’s estranged girlfriend is Aleman’s 40-year-old sister. Detectives believe Hernandez is holding Aleman to force the girlfriend to re-establish the relationship.

“The police department shares the family’s concern for Mariann’s safe return,” said Northeast Detective PJ Morris. “We have done everything we could to find her. We need the public’s help.”

Mariann Aleman is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. She is Hispanic and Spanish speaking.

Hernandez is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. He is a registered sex offender and has prior arrests for narcotics violations.

Aleman was last seen at her home in the 5000 block of Glen Iris Avenue in Eagle Rock.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Northeast Detectives at 213-847-4261. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).

Photographs of the victim and suspect are available from Media Relations, upon request.
