According to the Anaheim Police Department, the woman, last seen in Stanton, is described as a petite, young African American with black hair and numerous tattoos.

She was last seen between Feb. 14 and Feb. 16 near Katella Avenue and Orangewood Avenue or Beach Boulevard north of Katella Avenue. She probably checked into a motel, Anaheim authorities said, but left her belongings behind without checking out, said the statement issued by the police department.

It is worth mentioning here that on Monday, Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, were charged with raping and murdering four women, all with ties to prostitution and all of whom vanished off the streets of Santa Ana and Anaheim.

According to the earlier report published by the PT, The two men, who both served prison terms for sexually assaulting children under the age of 14, were arrested late Friday near a trash-sorting facility where the body of one of the women, Jarrae Nykkole Estepp, was found on a conveyor belt last month.

Cano and Gordon are also accused in the death of Kianna Rae Jackson, 20; Martha Anaya, 28; and Josephine Monique Vargas, 34. All three went missing last fall.

The men are suspected of raping and murdering the women while wearing their court-ordered GPS devices, Anaheim Police Chief Raul Quezada said Monday.

The string of disappearances in Santa Ana began in early October, but it was the discovery of Estepp’s body in an Anaheim trash collection site that was the break in the case.

Only Estepp’s body has been recovered; authorities said they would be looking for the remains of the other women in landfills, among other places.

Police also said they have recovered an RV that was parked near the trash-sorting facility, and that the two suspects were believed to be connected to the vehicle.
