Detectives searching for runaway foster home sisters

(L to R) Duchess Savanah Adams,10, and Tina Victoria Adams, 11, went missing on Sept. 30.

LANCASTER – Have you seen the girls in this photo? If so, Lancaster detectives would like to hear from you.

Authorities believe the two young girls ran away on Sunday (Sept. 30).

Ten-year-old Duchess Savanah Adams and her 11-year-old sister, Tina Victoria Adams, were last seen by their foster mother around 3 p.m. Sunday at the Vallarta Supermarket at 1801 W. Avenue I in Lancaster.

The foster mother told detectives that she had been shopping at the market with the girls earlier in the day, however, when they returned home, the girls asked her to return to the market because they had left something inside the store.

When she returned to the market, she allowed the girls to go inside to retrieve the item, but the girls never returned, the foster mother said.

She told detectives that she is also the “foster mother” for the girls’ nine-year-old sister.

In interviewing the sister, detectives learned that the two missing girls had formulated a plan to run away from the foster home and live with their half-sister somewhere in the Los Angeles area.

The girls are part of a family that lives a nomadic lifestyle, according to detectives.

The girls’ father, Anthony Ristick, is considered a “person of interest” by detectives.

Detectives have been unable to identify and locate the half-sister, but detectives have been in contact with the girls’ biological mother, who lives in Colorado.

The woman was unable to provide any information regarding the girls’ whereabouts, detectives said.

Prior to placement in the foster home, the girls had been in the care of their biological father, Anthony Ristick.

Ristick’s last known address was in Oregon, but his current whereabouts are unknown.

It is unknown if Ristick has any involvement in this incident, but he is considered a “Person of Interest” by Lancaster detectives.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station at 661-948-8466.

    I think the gypsy people in Portland go by the term Romani. Ephrams and Risticks are huge families with lots of $$. They keep most assets liquid. Have lots of cars, and gold jewelry. They sell cars on and off car lots all over 82nd in SE portland and some in Gresham. They usually live in communities and don’t allow their kids to go to public school or associate with outsiders. Have been known to marry within their own family. I am generalizing and there are certainly exceptions to the above.
    My guess is the father picked the girls up at Vallarta or had someone else pick them up when the girls went back to “pick up” what they left behind. These girls are probably either hidden with family here or have been sent to be with other “family” people. Theirs is a culture where blood is definetly thicker than water and protecting family is everything. That is in part how they are able to pull off large scale scams, idenity theft, shop lifting rings, chop shops, etc.

    The only thing we should be worried about here is the safety of these 2 young girls! Not donut eating cops or welfare or foodstamps or who ever else you want to blame! you must have a sad life to troll here and just come up with stupid sh** to say… do you know how many PAROLED and Registered SEX offenders are in the AV??? tooooooooooooo Many……look at Megans law for your street or City and you will find more then 10 in a few miles of you. I am praying that these little girls did not meet one of them and that they will be found in good health and unharmed….by the way Pollyana maybe the little girls have their foodstamp card and can buy the lazy cops a donut with it or maybe you could use yours…..

      “toria” yeah it’s too bad these “lazy” cops have to waste their time chasing gypsy kids that ran away willingly.. these cops could be spending their time chasing after real criminals that run rampant in the AV.. when the girls food stamps run out they can return to their foster home and the card can be reloaded so that they can play these silly games over and over again..

      What kind of heartless pig looks at 10 and 11 year old missing girls and sees nothing but moochers? What kind of monster are you? Let me guess. You believe in late late term abortions? I certainly hope you are never alone with ANY children at ANY age!

    Hey [removed]-poster-Ace… use your real name. It’s very telling that you enjoy pretending to be a female. That tells us a lot about you.
