Mother attends vigil for Juliani's safe return | News
MODESTO - Tabitha Cardenas and about 70 other supporters holding out hope that 4-year-old Juliani Cardenas is still alive held a vigil in Modesto Sunday.
Lorina Gill said she doesn't know Juliani's mother Tabitha Cardenas but was praying for the boy's safe return. Still, Cardenas said she showed about at the Modesto vigil to ask for help in finding Juliani.
"My gut tells me that my son is still alive," Cardenas said. "And I need help you know... for people to keep their eyes out."
The search of the Delta-Mendota Canal was called off Saturday. The car belonging to kidnap suspect Jose Esteban Rodriguez was found in the canal Friday without any trace of the two.
Juliani was with his grandmother on Jan. 18. when officers say Rodriguez grabbed the child and took off.
Rodriguez is the ex-boyfriend of Tabitha Cardenas.
