Two-year-old Jaya Trevino was last seen around 12:19 a.m. on Monday, November 4, at 10000 Shaenfield Road in San Antonio.

Jaya Trevino was taken by her father, 33-year-old Juan Trevino, Monday during what investigators say was a family violence assault. Juan Trevino "kicked down the door to his estranged wife’s residence, threatened her with violence and shortly thereafter proceeded to assault her," said police. Trevino then grabbed Jaya and ran out of the home.

She is described as being 3 feet tall and weighing 26 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink t-shirt with "Big Sister" written in pink and purple lettering and a diaper.

Jaya is believed to be with her father, 33-year-old Juan Trevino.

Trevino is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos on both arms and a music note tattoo behind his left ear. He was last seen wearing a white cap, black jacket, blue Nike t-shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

The two were believed to be traveling in a black, 2014 Nissan Sentra with Texas license plate MKS1273. Police have now located this vehicle. They say it has been accounted for, but the child and her father are still missing.
