The parents of a missing California woman believe their daughter may have been abducted, and are asking for the public’s help in finding her.
Julissa Fuentes, 22, was last seen on August 7th at an AM/PM gas station in Selma, California around 4am.
“We think someone took her against her will,” her father, Joey Fuentes, told Fox News Digital.
Her parents said she went to a friend’s party the night before and then stopped at her grandmother’s to pick up a bag and some money before stopping at AM/PM.

Fuentes’ mother, Norma Oney, said, “It’s not like she just takes off and leaves. She’s very social, she doesn’t miss work. We’re going into her fourth day of missing work.” Expecting to come home late from her job at the packing house, she usually tells her grandmother.

Her family speculates that she may have moved to a rural part of Selma, home to orchards, vineyards and other fields, where she usually “retreats mentally” after the death of a best friend last year. “Spent time to get peace”.
The family is working with police to locate Fuentes’ phone and his last known location.
“We know that at 5:26 [a.m.]she called her sister because my daughter was in LA,” Auni said, but her other daughter didn’t pick up the phone at the time.
When asked if he had a message to share with his daughter, Joey Fuentes said: “We love you, Julissa, come home.”
Fuentes’ parents described her as a “courageous woman” with a “sweet heart”, “disciplined woman”, “loyal woman”, “loving friend” and “good girl”.
“That’s why the community is trying to find him,” the elder Fuentes said.
Fuentes drives a silver 2011 Hyundai Accent with California license plate number 8MPU766.
