Amber Alert: Lonnie Ramos Shot Estranged Wife In Orange County, California, Took Son Ryan Ramos; Both May Be In Northern Utah

Update July 5th 2:18 P.M. MDT: The Deseret News and KSL Channel 5 have just reported that the Amber Alert has been called off by California authorities because they no longer believe the Ramoses are in Utah. Although no official reason has yet been given, KABC Channel 7 earlier reported that the RV in question has been located near the Arizona-California border. These and further updates presented and discussed in this subsequent post.

Update #2 July 6th 12:01 P.M. MDT: Ryan Ramos found unhurt in Mexico, was dropped off at an LDS chapel. See updated post HERE

Utah authorities issued an Amber Alert late Friday July 4th, 2008 in connection with the shooting of a mother in Orange County, California. Police have reason to believe that 45-year-old Lonnie Ramos shot his estranged wife Gynnae Ramos in the head on Tuesday, July 2nd and illegally took their son, 9-year-old Ryan Ramos with him. Ryan has been the subject of a contentious custody fight since 2003. Local story reported by KTVX Channel 4, the Salt Lake Tribune, and KSL Channel 5 (HERE with video, and HERE). See the Orange County (CA) Register for a comprehensive report.

Police say Ramos has a girlfriend in Northern Utah, either in Kaysville (KTVX) or Draper (Tribune, new KSL story), and that he might be in the area. A witness may have also seen Ramos at the Cherry Hill campground in Kaysville on Friday. Ramos also has family ties in Texas and Washington, D.C.

Police both in Utah and California believe Ramos is driving one of the three following vehicles, although they can't nail it down. But police in California believe it is most likely Ramos is driving an RV. The reported campground sighting may best support this conclusion:

(1). A rented purple gold and white Fleetwood RV with California license plate 5EGW556. Update July 5th 2:12 P.M. MDT: KABC Channel 7 in L.A. has just reported that this RV has been found near the Arizona-California border. Investigators on the scene.

(2). A 2004 Chevy Suburban with Califronia license plate 5LTC712, or

(3). A red convertible Porsche with a black top and California license plate 4BWU827.

The reason for the uncertainty, according to the Register, is because the latter two vehicles are suddenly missing.

Lonnie Ramos is described by his ex-wife as "extremely aggressive and verbally abusive". He is further described as 6'3", 180 pounds with brown hair. Ryan Ramos is described as 4'9", 89 pounds with brown hair. Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ramos or his son to call authorities immediately.
