4 arrested, victim still missing in Vallejo kidnapping

Elvira Babb was last seen June 29 by a co-worker who dropped her off at a market in Vallejo. Her son, John Babb, received a text message from an unknown number the next day demanding money — a figure described as less than $100,000 — and threatening his mother's life if he didn't comply or went to the police.

Babb went to his mother's home after receiving the text and found her pet Chihuahua dead. He contacted the Vallejo Police Department and told officers his mother had been kidnapped and was being held for ransom.

A weeklong investigation, which included the FBI, the Sacramento and Fairfield police departments, Solano County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Marshals Service, led officials to an acquaintance of Elvira Babb, 26-year-old Emmanuel Espinoza, who was arrested in Sacramento on Friday night.
