California police arrested two parents recently, but haven’t been able to find their 20-month-old twins. And the parents aren’t cooperating.
Aaron Ivan Weddles, 41, and Princess Dara Canez Walker, 32, were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of child endangerment and child neglect, reported the Stockton Record.
Someone had alerted officers that the two adults and their children—the twins, another set of twins aged 2, and a four-year-old girl—were possibly living out of a vehicle, later identified as a white 2002 Suzuki SUV.
Three of the children were found with the parents living in the vehicle, but the youngest set of twins have not been as of yet.
Stockton police Chief Eric Jones has asked the public to help find the twins due to the parents’ lack of cooperation.
“We’re really imploring the community’s help,” Jones said, reported the Record. “We believe somebody out there knows where these kids are or has seen them recently. … We need to go back and retrace where this family has been and where these children may be.”
“We’re hoping the toddlers are at a family member’s house or a family friend’s house,” added Joe Silva with the department, reported Fox40.
The plea for help came after Weddles, the children’s father, responded to police asking where the twins were: “You’re the ones getting paid. Do your job.”
