Woman reportedly kidnapped after Parlier party

FRESNO, Calif.

Authorities say 21-year-old Jessica Llamas was kidnapped at gunpoint on Saturday night.

Llamas was leaving a party with a group of people near Parlier Avenue and Zediker Avenue just outside Parlier.

One of Llamas' friends describes Jessica as a quiet young woman who did very well at school.

Maria Pacheco is a former classmate from Parlier High School.

"It's shocking. I never thought she would get kidnapped or something would happen like that to her," Pacheco said.

Pacheco said she hopes authorities find her friend soon.

"She was kidnapped, at gunpoint, a shot was fired and she is still missing," Deputy Chris Curtis of the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said.

Jessica was at a Quinceañera on Saturday night at a house off Parlier Avenue.

The 21-year-old left in a group of six people.

That's when the Fresno County Sheriff's Office say two gunmen tried to rob the group.

The suspects forced them onto the ground, and investigators say they beat up one person. At least one gunshot was fired but no one was hit.

Detectives say they then forced Jessica into a white 1998 Toyota Camry.

That Toyota has the California license plate number 6SKW418.

Deputies say they're still looking for the two suspects.

People who live near the area of the kidnapping say they don't feel safe.

"The police come down here all the time on this street," resident Rita Rodriguez said. "There is a lot of stuff that happens right here in the neighborhood. They call it Devil's Colony."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff's Office at (559) 488-3111.
