ORIGINAL STORY: On Oct. 6 the Summit County Sheriff’s Office issued an Amber Alert for missing 6-year-old, Chanzi Delgado.
Police say Chanzi Delgado was intentionally taken from her mother by the child’s estranged father, Mark Anthony Delgado after he requested to get back together to work out their relationship.
Mr. Delgado went to South Dakota four days ago and brought the child and mother to a friend’s residence in Summit County to reconcile their relationship.
Mr. Delgado left the Summit County residence with the child to “run errands” in a borrowed vehicle at 8:00 am on Oct. 6.
Delgado and the child never returned.
The child’s mother received a Facebook message from Mr. Delgado where he stated he was taking the child to Los Angeles out of retribution for making him suffer not seeing their child for the past four years.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office has reason to believe the child was abducted by the father and is in imminent danger.
The missing child is Chanzi Delgado (Native American), a 6-year-old female, 4 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 92 pounds, has brown eyes, shoulder-length brown hair, and is missing her four top front teeth - all other teeth have silver caps. Her right pointer finger has deformity from a previous injury.
The suspect vehicle is a black 2007 GMC Yukon XL with aftermarket chrome wheels. The vehicle has Utah license plates 8G4PP.
The suspect is Mark Anthony Delgado (Hispanic), a 49-year-old male, 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs approximately 210 pounds, has brown eyes, and shaved bald head. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black short-sleeve dress shirt with a white tank top under the shirt.
