Shortly after 6:00 a.m., Sparks Police was notified two children were missing from their home located at 3225 Elaine Way. Janet Lopez awoke this morning and prepared to wake her children for school. Her two children, 10-year-old Gloria “Jasmine” Ramirez and 14-year-old Reimundo Edward Ramirez were not in the home. Janet contacted police with the belief her son Reimundo took Jasmine sometime over the night because of an argument she and Reimundo had the previous day. It is unknown if Jasmine went willingly with her brother or if there was a threat or force used upon Jasmine to remove her from the home.

Police just developed information the children may have been with, or are currently with, Marcus Jesus Lopez, a 21-year-old male associate to Reimundo. Lopez may be driving a blue 2005 Hyundai with Nevada plate number 513 YZK. Lopez was reportedly transporting the children to an unknown location. It is unclear if Lopez knows the children are missing. Officers had made several efforts to contact and locate Lopez without success.

Please see the attached photos of the children and Lopez.

Anyone with information as to the location of the missing children is asked to call the Sparks Police Department or Secret Witness.
