La Mesa, CA - La Mesa, CA police spotted a vehicle matching an attempt to locate (ATL) that Peoria Police had sent to all AZ and CA agencies regarding the disappearance of 16 year old Shelby Hayes from Peoria, AZ.
Police say after running the plate they spotted a car matching the description at a hotel. They confirmed with the desk clerk that 18 year old Joseph McNally also from Peoria was a registered guest. The officer made contact with McNally in the room. After searching and interviewing McNally on the events of the past 24 hours, they booked him into San Diego County Jail for possession of heroin and 3 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, as well as the original charge of violating a court order to stay away from Shelby Hayes.
Shelby was turned over to her grandfather, who was already en route to his second home in the San Diego area, and she remains with him at this time. She is facing no charges. She told La Mesa Police that she left willingly with Joseph, and in fact had packed bags and never intended to return. The two were tracked through a Border Patrol checkpoint in Yuma in route to La Mesa so alerts we issued here.
This is the earlier news release Peoria, AZ police issued.
On 04/30/12, the mother of Shelby Lynn Hayes, 16, reported Shelby as missing when she found out her daughter did not show up for classes at high school or a beauty trade school. The mother has a valid order of protection prohibiting any contact between Shelby's ex-boyfriend, 18 year old Joseph Anthony McNally, and her entire family. It is believed Shelby may be traveling in the company of McNally. A delayed hit came back on this vehicle, showing it went through Border Patrol checkpoint in Yuma last evening. As a result, we ask local media outlets to share this information with their affiliates in the San Diego area.
Both Shelby as well as McNally's vehicle, a charcoal grey 2001 Nissan Maxima bearing AZ ATZ1202, were entered into NCIC as missing and/or endangered.
