Amber Alert issued for 14-year-old Rochester girl

An Amber Alert was issued Monday evening for a 14-year-old Rochester girl. 
Rochester Police believe Joanna Coates was abducted on LaSalle Street in Rochester around 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1. The child was taken under conditions that lead police to believe they are in imminent danger of serious harm and or death. 
Coates is described as a white female with purple hair and blue eyes. She is approximately 5'4" and weighs about 100 pounds. She was last seen wearing a blue shirt, black leggings, and Timberland boots.
Police believe the suspect is 41-year-old Robert Gonzalez. He is described as an Hispanic male with black hair and brown eyes. He is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs about 185 pounds.
News10NBC spoke with Coates' mother Monday night who says she believes her daughter was taken right outside of their house on LaSalle Street by their neighbor. 
Coates' mother says the neighbor started befriending her daughter over the summer and would constantly try to hang out with the teen. 
"He's a junkie, he sells drugs, he pimps girls out. I don't want my daughter to be one of those people," said Linda Hollart, Coates' mother. "I am asking anybody, everybody, I don't care where she is, just bring her home safely to me. I love you, we love you. If you're watching this Joanna, please come home." 
Gonzalez was last seen traveling southeast, possibly heading to New York City. 
Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call 911 immediately. 
News10NBC will continue to update this story on-air and online as more information becomes available.
