Update: Parental Abduction Case


On July 13th, Detectives from the Grover Beach Police Department located the 1997 Ford Expedition in San Luis Obispo County. It is believed Ms. Graciano and the children are still headed to Mexico, possibly the Tijuana area.


Original Release:

On July 12th at about 12:30 a.m., Grover Beach Police Officers were dispatched to a reported Parental Abduction that occurred from the residential address of 53 Parkview Ave in Grover Beach.

Responding officers were able to determine that Mireya Graciano, 30, of San Luis Obispo was seen in front of the foster residence one hour prior to the abduction report. Ms. Graciano does not have custody of her three children, ages 7, 9, and 11, because of a San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Order due to prior child abuse allegations. It is believed that Ms. Graciano may be heading to Mexico with the children. Due to the past abuse allegations, the Grover Beach Police Department is concerned for the well being of the children.

The Grover Beach Police Department has sent out a “be on the lookout” to all law enforcement agencies as well as the Immigration and Customs Enforcement detail at the U.S. / Mexico border. The police department is asking for the public’s help in locating Ms. Graciano, 7 year old Mindy Ochoa, 9 year old Briana Ochoa and 11 year old Tania Ochoa. Ms. Graciano was last seen driving a brown or beige colored 1997 Ford Expedition with California License 3VVW166.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ms. Graciano or the children is encouraged to call their local police department or the Grover Beach Police Department at (805) 473-4511. Additional information can be forwarded to Detective Mike Hollis.
