How absolutely terrifying! I can only imagine how frightened and worried their loved ones must feel, especially because both of the victims are so young. Lopez isn't even of legal age yet and that poor little girl must be so confused and scared! I only hope that the two are found safe and sound soon--and that Hernandez is caught and punished for his crime. My thoughts are with them and their family!
