Circumstances of Discovery

A child, approximately 4 to 5 years old in June 1977, was left in the care of a casual acquaintance by the purported mother, who never reappeared to claim, relinquish custody, or provide a birth certificate or any other documentation for her child.

The acquaintance passed the child to another woman who raised her and subsequently petitioned the court for guardianship.

The purported mother may have gone by the name Debbie Gutierrez or the possible nickname of "Bombshell." It is not known if the woman presenting herself as Debbie Gutierrez was, in fact, the biological mother.
