A Teen Mom & Baby Missing
Being a teen mom wasn’t easy for
Fuentes, but she was keeping up with her high school classes—still online due to COVID precautions— and was happy her mom, Lucy Molina, 49, was helping care for baby Melody, born Dec. 10, 2020. “Genesis is a good kid, and I would stay up at night to help her with the baby, to make sure she does her school,” says Molina. “She was nervous—she’s so young. But she was happy.” On Feb. 11, 2021, as Genesis and the baby waited in the car, Molina went into a drugstore to pick up Tylenol for Melody, who had just had her first immunizations. Another car pulled up; her daughter and granddaughter disappeared into it. Though part of the incident was captured on surveillance video,
Molina says, police did not issue an Amber Alert, a decision she doesn’t understand. Authorities say the case “is being investigated as a missing person and the investigation is active and ongoing.” Molina suspects Genesis could be with Melody’s father, but the teen is no longer attending school and has not confirmed that she and her now 4-month-old are safe. “Somebody snagged her,” says Molina. “I love her. I want her back.” Call police at 215-686-8477 with information.
