On October 30, 2013, at 12:42 p.m., the Milpitas Police Department received a 911 call from a resident on the 200-blk of N. Hillview Drive reporting an occupied suspicious vehicle. Officers arrived and discovered a 10 year old female and an 8 year old male alone inside of the vehicle. The children had been left alone in the vehicle since 10 p.m. the previous day by their father, Julio Reyes. Officers were unable to locate Reyes. The children were taken into protective custody and later transferred to the custody of the Department of Family and ChildrenÕs Services.
At 11:22 p.m., Reyes, a San Jose resident, called the Milpitas Police Department reporting his vehicle and children were missing. He was interviewed and subsequently arrested. Reyes was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for felony child endangerment.
