Tracy police find container possibly linked to missing girl case

Tracy police found a container in a pond Monday close to the mobile home community where a girl was reported missing.

Police are investigating the discovery of a suitcase with a red ribbon around it that was found at the bottom of a pond north of Tracy, Calif., Mercury News reported.

The pond was being routinely drained near Tracy Boulevard, just north of Orchard Estates Mobile Home Park where missing 8-year-old Sandra Cantu was last seen, according to the Stockton Record.

Farmworkers found the suitcase and FBI investigators were on the scene, the Stockton Record reported.

Authorities will not confirm or deny that the suitcase is related to the case of Cantu, who has been missing since March 27, Mercury News reported.

San Joaquin Sherrif's Department spokesman Les Garcia told the Stockton Record that the container was suspicious.

The reward money for Cantu's return is nearly $30,000, according to Stockton Record.
