Please help us locate a missing Nampa woman and her 2 small children. They were last seen yesterday at Walmart on 12th Ave S. bet. 3 and 5 pm. She was possibly in Caldwell overnight. If you know where they are, call 208-465-2257 option2 pic.twitter.com/bry45LhyZu
Authorities believe they may have been in Caldwell overnight.
Shasta is described as a white female, 5' 5" tall, around 150 pounds with red hair and green eyes. She has several notable tattoos including "fear God" above her left eye, "midnight" above her right eye, and a small cross below her right eye. She also has a stud piercing below her left eye.
The children are described as two-year-old male Lorenzo, and one-year-old male Omari. Both have brown hair and brown eyes.
Police have not yet released any information as to why they believe the mother and her children may be in danger.
Corporal Angela Weekes with the Nampa Police Department tells 6 On Your Side Shasta and the boys did not come home Friday night, and they want to talk with her to make sure they are safe.
Shasta's name may sound familiar because she survived heinous crimes as a child at the hands of Joseph Duncan, who killed her family and abducted her and her brother in northern Idaho in 2005. Duncan is currently on death row in a federal prison in conjunction with the Groene kidnappings and murders. He is serving 11 consecutive life sentences, and has also confessed to other murders.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Nampa Police at 208-465-2257, then press option 2.
