Campbell Toddler Left for Dead in Garage



    Campbell police are searching for a 35-year-old man they believe severely abused his ex-girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

    The 15-year-old son of the man, identified as George Rodriguez,  found the girl rolled up in a carpet in Rodriguez's garage at his home in the 1300 block of Pollard Road two weeks ago, police Capt. Charley Adams said.

    The child is now in protective custody.

    Her mother, Jane Marin, 31, was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and remains in custody at Santa Clara County Jail, Adams said.

    Police initially announced the case on May 11, when they responded to the house on a report of child abuse and could not locate Rodriguez,  Marin, or the 3-year-old girl.

    Rodriguez is described as a Hispanic man about 6 feet 1 inch tall who weighs 230 pounds.

    Adams said detectives have searched the San Jose and the  Sacramento areas based on tips and leads. The Sacramento Police Department  and sheriff's office are also involved in the search.

    Anyone who sees Rodriguez is asked to call 911 or has information  about his whereabouts to call police at (408) 866-2101.
