SUTTER CREEK, Calif. (KTXL) – Saturday marks exactly two years since last seeing an Amador teenage girl.
Victoria Marquina remains missing.
October 9, 2019 was the last time anyone heard from the then 16 -year -old girl.
Marquina grew up and worked in Sutter Creek but found his car abandoned an hour’s drive away south of Escalon.
Marquina’s mother, Blanca Valencia, did not give up on the search.
Blanca organized a fundraiser at the Taco Spot food truck in Sutter Creek on Saturday. He told FOX40 that his goal was to increase the reward money in this case – a reward currently at $ 20,000.
“Please, someone knows,” Valencia said. “She is my only daughter. She is my baby. ”
Since Marquina’s disappearance, authorities have arrested a 22-year-old man they believe killed him and then fled to Mexico, but he was later released for lack of evidence.
Those who attended the fundraiser on Saturday said they hoped Marquina would be found safe and well.
“They’re a great family and just deserve all the help they can get to find him,” said family friend Joe Dirickx.
“I want to hear something from someone – whatever – who knows what happened to him,” Valencia said.
Anyone with any information about Marquina’s whereabouts is asked to call the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office at 209-953-7728.
