Police are looking for Liliana Lopez, 29, and her three children - Jakob Cabrera, 9, Steven Matthew Lopez, 6, and Stephana Lopez, 5.
They are also looking for Esteban Lopez, 28. He is believed to be a suspect in their disappearance, but police did not specify his exact relationship to the alleged victims.
Police were called to the 13600 block of Fellows Avenue at 9:27 p.m. on Oct. 9 and found that a possible kidnapping had occurred. Police were continuing to search for them even as the Saddle Ridge Fire started up the next day and raged throughout the area.
They asked for the public's help finding any of the five individuals. The family's Great Dane has also been missing.
Neighbors told Eyewitness News they saw Esteban Lopez at the house partying with some friends Saturday night. But they have not seen the other family members.
There are two vehicles associated with the missing victims and suspect: a 2007 dark gray Lexus 350 IS with California license plate 7JOM377 and a 1996 lifted white Chevy Tahoe with black rims and California license plate 3RSR716.
