Bluujaye Enriquez,17, ran away from home on September 15 and is still missing according to her mother, Janice Enriquez.

Enriquez said her daughter’s last possible known whereabouts were with her boyfriend Ryder Calvillo but that she has not heard from the Sacramento Police department since early November.

A report from KCRA 3 was updated September 25 and reported that Bluujaye was found but that is not accurate.

“I’ve been calling and I’ve been hung up on by detectives. They are very rude and don’t return your phone calls,” Enriquez said.

Enriquez says that police told her that her daughter was at a WIND Youth Services (WYS) shelter somewhere in the city but that they could not disclose the location with her.

Police could not disclose the whereabouts of a missing child with the child’s mother. Sacramento PD has not confirmed this information.

“They couldn’t disclose the location of my daughter to me because this agency is a non-profit so they don’t have to abide by [the same] state or federal regulations to protect the children,” Enriquez said. “I’m just a mother missing a child to them.”

WYS Executive Director, Sutonya Lopez was emailed but had not responded by the time of publication.

Enriquez said that police and a CPS worker told her where her daughter was and that she agreed to let them bring her daughter back the next day but when the next day came her daughter had gone “A-wall,’ and they didn’t know where she was.

“The CPS worker called me and said my daughter was gone and that she would let me know if they found her,” Enriquez said. “I haven’t heard back from her.”

Bluujaye’s family would like her to come home but ultimately just wants to know that she is ok. Bluujaye’s father is just as concerned and worried about his daughter as her mother is.

A private investigator, Frank Roman, was paid by Bluujaye’s parents but did nothing to find their daughter according to Enriquez.

“He just ripped us off. He showed us some pictures of someplace we had never seen before and that was it,” Enriquez said.

Bluujaye has two older sisters and one younger who also miss their sister.

“I love her unconditionally. If she has to drop me a letter or give me a quick call, that’s fine. I just need to know that she is ok,” Enriquez said. “I can’t stop until I know she’s ok.”

Bluujaye is American Indian and Hispanic is 5’2” and weighs approximately 135 pounds.

Anyone having any information should contact or call 1-800-843-5678 or the Sacramento Police Department at 916-264-5471.
