DELANO, Calif. - Delano Police and family are asking for assistance in locating a woman who went missing after walking in her neighborhood.
On Wednesday, October 9 at 10 p.m., Erika Padron Lango was last seen by her husband, Julio Lango, as he said she left their Delano apartment to walk to a friend's house, officials said.
Lango never made it to her friends house and did not arrive to work Thursday, October 10, officials said.
"I don't think she ever did intend to walk to somebody's house because that was not like her to walk at that late night," said Lorena Contreras, Erika's aunt.
Erika is a mother of four children, aged 9 months to 6 years old.
Police said they seized the SUV belonging to Julio Lango with questionable items inside.
Erika's family alleges that the sweater Erika was wearing and a bloody baseball bat were inside the seized SUV.
Julio Lango was charged with spousal abuse and assault in late September. Family members said Julio had been arrested for hitting Erika before and there was a restraining order against Julio at the time of her disappearance.
Erika Padron Lango is a Hispanic woman, 5-feet-4-inches tall, weighing 125 pounds, with brown eyes, long brown straight hair, and a tattoo to her right shoulder blade of "Julio," officials said.
Erika was last seen wearing black sandals, blue sweat pants, and a blue or pink sweater top, officials said.
Anyone with information regarding Erika Padron Lango's whereabouts should contact the Delano Police Department at 661-721-3377
