NAMPA POLICE DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE May 20, 2015-Nampa Idaho On 05/18/2015, Nampa Police received a call from a mother reporting that her two young children were abducted by the children's father. Normally under these circumstances, the case is routed to a prosecutor to review custodial issues as the children are, in most cases, believed to be safe as they are in the possession of a parent.
Nampa Police Detectives reviewing this case have determined that the children are in imminent danger due to psychological issues reported that are affecting the children's father, 31 year-old Joshua Reavis. Because of these concerns, an Amber Alert was issued and Reavis is now wanted on custodial interference charges. The children, 3 year old Slevin Reavis(male) and 2 year old Estaleyn Reavis(female) were last seen in Nampa on May 18 at their home in Nampa in the custody of Joshua Reavis.

Due to the circumstances of the abduction, the Nampa Police Child Abduction Response Team was called out to investigate and locate the children. A tip line has been set up for the public to call with any tips on the case. That number is 208-465-2206.
