Police looking for missing Chesterfield mom and kids

Chesterfield County

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Police in Chesterfield County are looking for a mother and her two children who haven’t been seen in nearly two months.

Erica M. Rivas, 38, and her three children — ages 13, 9 and 2 — were reported missing by Chesterfield County’s Department of Social Services after a DSS employee was unable to locate them at their Falling Creek Apartments home on Wednesday, October 30. They were last seen at their North Chesterfield home on September 20.

Leasing agents told 8News Rivas is not on at lease at the complex, but police believe they were living their with someone.

A neighbor said she saw the four drive off with a man they lived with in a red truck, but hasn’t seen them since.

“It’s heartbreaking,” the concerned neighbor said. “Just reach out and talk to somebody, call someone, anyone, let them know that you’re okay.”

Police said there’s no reason at this time to believe that Rivas or her children are in danger.

Rivas is described as a Hispanic female, about 5 feet tall and weighing about 137 pounds. She has brown eyes and brown hair.

Rivas’s three children, Dayami Valasquez, 13, Melanie Rivas, 9, and Isabelle Gamez, 2, are all described as Hispanic females.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Rivas, Dayami, Melanie and Isabelle should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
