PHOENIX — Authorities have found the three Pinal County girls that were abducted overnight from a San Tan Valley home.

All three are safe.

The Amber Alert was issued at 6 p.m. Friday after Paityn Randall, 16; Jessyka Randall, 12; and Miracle Hernandez, also 12 years old were officially declared missing.

Two of the girls are sisters and the third girl is not related. The initial abductor was the two sisters’ biological mother, Veronica Francis Aleksiejczyk Rivera.

The 44-year-old woman’s parental rights were severed and the three children were all living together in the same foster residence.

Aleksiejczyk was in a tan Ford Bronco with an unknown license plate that was being driven by a male named Martin Leon Villanueva.

We want to hear from you.
