      Amber Alert for missing 12-year-old girl

      Julieta Yoselin

      The State Law Enforcement Division has issued an Amber Alert for a missing girl from the upstate. Julieta Yoselin, 12, was last seen at the CVS Pharmacy Parking Lot on Highway 76 in Clemson.

      She is a hispanic female, stands about 4'0" tall, weighs 85 pounds, has black, shoulder length hair and brown eyes.

      Authorities are looking for Jesus Alanda Lozada, 26, a hispanic male in connection with Yoselin's disappearance. Lozada stands 6'0" tall, weighs 190 pounds, has short, black hair and brown eyes.

      Police believe they might be traveling in a tan, four-door, 1996 Honda Accord with a South Carolina license plate reading GAT-461. The vehicle could possibly be traveling towards Georgia.

      If you have any information, you're asked to contact authorities.

      Man charged with kidnapping 12-year-old SC girl

      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina Amber Alert is posted for a missing 12-year-old girl, and authorities have taken out a warrant accusing a 26-year-old man of abducting her.

      Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon says no one has reported seeing Julieta Yoselin since she sneaked out of her home Monday night to meet with Jesus Alanda Lozada, who is charged in the warrant with kidnapping.

      Dixon says the Amber Alert was issued two days later when investigators determined Lozada gathered up all his belongings and the girl took nothing.

      Dixon says it was apparent the girl was not ready to stay gone a long time.

      Authorities think Lozada may be heading to Atlanta where he has family members.

      The FBI is helping local and state investigators.
