UPDATE: Mother and child have been located. – 12/7/19
SANTA ANA, Calif. – Santa Ana police are asking for the public’s help finding a woman and her 1-year-old son who have been missing for more than a week.
Mylinna Linder, 19, and her son Montana Linder have not been seen since the afternoon of Nov. 26 when they were at Jerome Park in Santa Ana.
It is believed Mylinna maybe with a boyfriend, identified only as Vincent, and they may be in the city of San Bernardino.
Vincent is believed to be driving a champagne-colored late 1990s four-door Toyota Camry.
Mylinna Linder is described as a 19-year-old woman, 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Montana Rashad Linder is about 1 year old with black curly hair and brown eyes.
Linder’s mother told local station KTLA she last saw her daughter and grandson when she dropped them off at the park. The following day, she reportedly received text messages from her daughter’s phone that seemed strange and sounded like they were written by someone else.
Her daughter texted saying she was fine and with her boyfriend, and that they were staying at a friends place, Lyana Linder told KTLA.
In another text, Linder’s boyfriend — an aspiring rapper who goes by the stage name “Lil Sneek” — said the 19-year-old had vanished Tuesday after she went to get gas when their car broke down on a San Bernadino highway.
He also said the child was not with his mother at that time, KTLA reports.
Police have reported Linder and her son “critically missing” because of Montana’s age.
Anyone with information regarding Linder, her son or her boyfriend’s whereabouts is urged to contact Detective Garcia at 714-245-8408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
