Pomona – The Pomona Police Department has issued a news release searching for a woman who recently abducted the son she abandoned last year.

Suspect Juana Corrigan gave up parental rights to her son, Joshua, when she deserted him and fled to Mexico. Joshua was placed into foster care and has remained there since the incident.

Corrigan, 21, of San Ysidro (and possibly Palm Springs), was reportedly evicted from her home recently. She approached the foster care home in the 700 block of East Third Street at about 5 p.m. on Tues., June 24, and claimed that she received permission from Joshua’s social worker to take possession of the child. The foster mother, who is reportedly related to Corrigan, became suspicious and did not acquiesce to the suspect. At that time Corrigan threatened to harm the child if she did not comply. Believing that the suspect would carry out her threat, the foster mother reluctantly released the boy. Mother and son fled the scene and their whereabouts are unknown as this time.

Juana Maria Corrigan is described as a female Hispanic, 5’8” tall, 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Joshua Saul Corrigan is described as a male Hispanic, 3’8”, 45 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

The Pomona Police Department is asking anyone who has seen the suspect or victim to call 911. Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to call (909) 622-1241. If you prefer to remain anonymous, contact “Crime Stoppers” at (800) 222-8477, or ” We Tip” at (800) 78-CRIME.
