Ashley Martinez

Fifteen-year-old Ashley Martinez was a fun-loving young girl who enjoyed swimming. She would often go to the neighborhood's public swimming pool. On July 6, 2004, Ashley's mother, Tammy Navinskey, dropped her and a younger brother off at Krug Pool. Later, when Tammy returned to pick up her children, only her son was waiting for her. Ashley was nowhere to be seen.

Tammy contacted local authorities to report her daughter missing. Investigators learned that Ashley had mentioned to friends that she was going to run away. She had also been seeing a man, named Christopher Hart. Hart, a 32-year-old convicted felon, lived near Ashley's home and had been promising her he would take her to California one day. Earlier that summer, Hart had been arrested for theft of a woman's purse. After his release, Hart failed to appear in court and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Law enforcement authorities quickly initiated a search for the missing child. "She disappeared the same day he disappeared," said Sergeant Jill Voltmer of the St. Joseph Police Department. "We're making the jump that she probably did leave with him." A description of Hart went out to all state and national law enforcement agencies. It was believed that he was driving a gray, 1995 Pontiac Bonneville, with a Missouri license plate number 377-MPY, and that Ashley could be with him.

Ashley's mother told the police that her daughter had run away before, but had not been gone for long. This time she left with only the clothes on her back. Ashley had not even taken along the medication for a bi-polar disorder from which she suffered. "She's so much a danger to herself, let alone anybody else she comes into contact with," said Tammy of her daughter.

On September 7th, Olympia, Washington police arrested Christopher Hart for purse snatching. They discovered a warrant was out on him and he was also wanted for parole violations. But young Ashley was not found with him. Hart proved to be uncooperative with the Olympia and St. Joseph law enforcement authorities on Ashley's whereabouts.

"We don't have any information at this point that would indicate that this missing female ever actually showed up in the Olympia-Thurston County area, or Washington state," said Olympia Police Commander Tor Bjornstad. "We talked to the people this guy was staying with when he was arrested, and they say he showed up here and he showed up alone and that (they) don't know anything about a female...and the guy in jail, he's not talking." Christopher Hart exhibited bizarre and unorthodox behavior while in jail. He has been sent to Western State Hospital for a mental evaluation, prior to his arraignment in court. Hart has still yet to reveal the whereabouts of Ashley Martinez and what he knows about the case.

Ashley Martinez has not yet been found. She was last seen wearing blue-jean shorts, a black top with red cherries, and white Reebok tennis shoes. Ashley has a scar on her left arm and her tongue, navel and ears are pierced. Law enforcement authorities still consider her case as open and Ashley as missing and endangered. Anyone with information on this case is urged to immediately contact the St. Joseph Police Department (816-271-4777).

Ashley Disappears From Neighborhood Pool
Fifteen-year-old Ashley Martinez is a fun-loving young girl who enjoyed swimming. She spent a lot of time at the neighborhood's public swimming pool in St. Joseph, Missouri.

On July 6, 2004, Ashley's mother, Tammy Navinskey, dropped her and a younger brother off at Krug Pool.

Later, when Tammy returned to pick up her children, only her son was waiting for her. Ashley was nowhere to be seen.


Police say Ashley disappears with convicted felon. He returns; Ashley remains missing.
Hart Disappears Same Day As Ashley
Tammy contacted local authorities to report her daughter missing. Investigators learned that Ashley had mentioned to friends that she was going to run away.

They also learned Ashley was also seeing a man named Christopher Hart. Hart, a 32-year-old convicted felon, lived near Ashley's home. Police say Hart had been under electronic home confinement for a second-degree assault conviction, and had also been convicted of drug possession, unlawful use of a weapon, and resisting arrest. Police say he had been promising he would take Ashley to California one day.

Earlier that summer, Hart had been arrested for stealing a woman's purse. Hart identified himself as Raymond M. Price - actually the name of a relative, according to police - and was released from the Thurston County Jail, but was sought on a warrant under the name Price after he failed to appear in court.

When Hart failed to appear in court, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Police discovered Hart had disappeared the same day as Ashley.

Law enforcement authorities quickly initiated a search for Ashley. A description of Hart went out to all state and national law enforcement agencies.

Ashley's mother told the police that her daughter had run away before, but had not been gone for long. This time she left with only the clothes on her back. Ashley had not even taken along the medication for a bi-polar disorder from which she suffered.


Hart Arrested, Ashley Still Missing
On September 7, 2004, Washington police arrested Christopher Hart on charges of purse snatching. They discovered a warrant was out on him and he was also wanted for parole violations. But young Ashley was not with him. Police say Hart was uncooperative when questioned about Ashley's whereabouts.

Police say he exhibited unorthodox behavior while in jail. He has been sent to Western State Hospital for a mental evaluation, prior to his arraignment in court. Hart has still yet to reveal the whereabouts of Ashley Martinez and what he knows about the case.

Ashley Martinez has not yet been found. She was last seen wearing blue-jean shorts, a black top with red cherries, and white Reebok tennis shoes.

Ashley has a scar on her left arm and has piercings on her tongue, navel and ears. Law enforcement authorities still consider her's an open case, and are treating Ashley as missing and endangered.

Man Accused of Taking Teenager is Extradited to Missouri

Manaccused of taking teenager is extradited to Missouri

4/12/2005 )
A Saint Joseph mother learns the man she says took her daughter out of state is headed back to Missouri Ashley Martinez`s mother has mixed feelings about his return.
Tammy Navinskey spends hours on the internet. It`s usually about four hours a day. She surfs the net in hopes of finding any information on her missing daughter Ashley. "The drive to find her is what gets me out of bed" says Navinskey.
She has been posting her daughter`s information on several different websites. She`s on America`s Most Wanted along with Missing and Exploited Children`s websites.

Martinez has been missing since July of last year. Navinskey believes she left town with 32-year old Christopher Hart who was listed on the Midland Empire`s Most Wanted Llist. Martinez was last seen at a St. Joseph pool.
According to America`s Most Wanted website, Hart was arrested in Olympus Washington but there was no word of Ashley. Police say he was not giving up information about her whereabouts. Now Hart is being extradited back to Jackson County.

"Its frustrating because he isnt talking. I am also hopeful because I hope he says something in this environment" says Navinskey.

Currently there are no charges against Hart in Buchanan County. Navinskey says was shocked by the news. In the state of Missouri, the age of consent to leave the state with an adult is 14.. Martinez was 15 when she disappeared. Navinskey says she would like to see that change. She has been in contact with Ed Wildberger and Charlie Shields about getting the law changed.
Representative Ed Wildberger says he`s working on a bill that will raise the age of consent to leave with an adult out of state to the age of Seventeen.

18 Wheels Turn for Missing Teen

A mother’s love for her daughter knows no bounds, and when that daughter has been ripped from her arms, she will move Heaven and Earth to find her. The caption above her daughter’s photo simply states: MISSING.

The young woman in the photo is Ashley Martinez, 16, of St. Joseph, MO, missing since July 6th, 2004. This is not such a simple matter for her mother, Tammy, who is doing everything she can to find her, as her heart is breaking as she fears for the well-being and safety of her daughter.

Strangers across the country are also helping Ashley’s family in many ways, and now some of the country’s best natural networkers, truck drivers, are going to help find the young woman by their participation in the 18 Wheel Angels program.

18 Wheel Angels is a national missing person’s locator program spearheaded by nonprofit organization Project Jason. The program enlists the aid of truck drivers and business travelers to place posters of missing persons along their routes as they travel across the country. Participants are asked to go to the 18 Wheel Angels link on the Project Jason website at www.projectjason.org, and to then download and print as many posters as they can place. Anyone can participate. Ashley Martinez’ 18 Wheel Angel campaign began on June 1st.and will run through the 15th.

In addition to the 18 Wheel Angels campaign, Project Jason, working together with JB Scott Publishing of Anniston, AL, has featured Ashley in the monthly publication, Through the Gears, which has a circulation nationwide of approximately 150,000. She is also on their website at www.truckjobseekers.com.

Project Jason has also added Ashley to their Adopt a Missing Person program. Ashley’s family sent buttons to the organization to have available for people across the country to mail in and request. The compassionate person who adopts Ashley will also be mailed an info card, which contains a bio and personal information about her. Whoever adopts Ashley will wear her button and share her story with others. As awareness is key in missing person’s cases, it is important for Ashley’s face to be seen so that she can be found and reunited with her family. Additional information about how to adopt Ashley can be found at www.projectjason.org.

Project Jason was founded by Kelly Jolkowski, mother of missing Omaha, NE youth Jason Jolkowski. The all volunteer group’s mission is to create and increase public awareness of missing people through a variety of outreach and educational activities. Project Jason seeks to bring hope and assistance to families of the missing by providing resources and support.

Ashley is a white female, 5’ 3” tall and 110 lbs with long sandy hair and blue eyes. Ashley suffers from bi-polar disorder, and does not have her medication with her. There is now a $5000 reward for information leading to the location and safe return of Ashley.

Kansas City disappearance case is 1 year old

BY KEVIN MURPHY
Knight Ridder Newspapers
Posted on Tue, Jul. 05, 2005

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - (KRT) - Every morning is the same for Tammy Navinskey - a couple of hours on the computer and phone in search of her teenage daughter, who disappeared one year ago Wednesday.

Ashley Renee Martinez was last seen at a St. Joseph public swimming pool. Ashley, 15 at the time, is believed to have left with a convicted felon, Christopher M. Hart, 33, police said.

Hart, arrested last September in Olympia, Wash., on a parole violation, is not talking about Ashley, said St. Joseph Police Sgt. Jill Voltmer.

Navinskey said she has given up on him cooperating.

"My best hope now is that someone will see her and come forward so we can bring her home," Navinskey said Tuesday.

To that end, Navinskey spends each morning contacting various organizations and their Web sites to get Ashley's picture and description circulated. She also is in frequent touch with police and the media.

"I try to have as much hope as I can because if I don't, it's hard to get through the day," Navinskey said. "I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a feeling in the back of my mind that she is (not) even alive. It's a fear I face every day. When it comes, I try to think hopeful thoughts."

Family and friends will hold a candlelight vigil for Ashley at 8 p.m. Wednesday in a parking lot of Krug Pool, 3541 St. Joseph Ave., where she was last seen a year ago. State and local officials and relatives of other missing persons will be among the guests.

A $5,000 reward for information was posted recently by the Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation, a fund created by relatives of Carole and Juli Sund, who along with Silvina Pelosso disappeared in Yosemite National Park in 1999 and were found murdered.

Police have received numerous tips on Ashley's whereabouts, largely from the Kansas City and Olympia areas, Voltmer said.

"I don't know if that's because they are valid or because it's where the mass mailings are and the mass posting of the different posters," Voltmer said.

Police have no solid leads at the moment, she said. Voltmer tried to interview Hart at the Jackson County Jail about six weeks ago, but she said he would not talk about Ashley. Hart is currently confined to a state mental hospital, a jail spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Hart was arrested in Olympia last July 17 for a purse-snatching. He used an alias, was released, failed to appear in court and was then arrested again Sept. 7 for violating parole on a Missouri charge of second-degree assault, Voltmer said. He also has been convicted of unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest and property damage, she said.

While nobody reported seeing Hart leave the pool with Ashley, she borrowed a friend's cell phone to call him that day, Voltmer said. Hart is also known to have stopped by a house, where he told someone his car was packed and he was going to pick up Ashley, Voltmer said.

Police have never found the car, a gray 1995 Pontiac Bonneville, Missouri plates 377MPY, Voltmer said. They also have not heard from anyone who saw Ashley after she left the pool that day, she said.

"I would have thought she would have called someone, a friend or someone," Navinskey said. "Even if she thought this was some sort of adventure, I find it hard to believe she wouldn't have contacted someone."

A Web site devoted to Ashley's disappearance, ashley.4ourangel.com , refers to her as a "fun-loving young girl" who loved to swim. She is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall, and 110 pounds with sandy blonde hair.

After her disappearance, investigators learned that she had mentioned to friends she was going to run away. She had been seeing Hart, who lived near her home and had promised he would take her to California one day, according to the Web site. She had a bipolar disorder, the site said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Voltmer at (816) 271-4747 or a TIPS hot line, (816) 238-TIPS.

Ashley Martinez Vigil
( Air Date: 7/6/2005 )
One year ago today, St. Joseph teen Ashley Martinez went missing. Today her family still has hope she`ll some day return home safely. A candlelight vigil was held tonight at Krug Park across from the pool where Ashley was last seen. A family and a community gathered to hope and pray they`ll see her again. The only person in custody who might know where Ashley is -- or if she`s even still alive -- is 33-year old Christopher Hart, but he refuses to talk at all about the case. A $5,000 reward is established for information that leads to Ashley`s safe return.

Family, friends mark anniversary of teen's disappearance

Associated Press


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - A group of 50 family, friends and community members gathered to mark the one-year anniversary since a St. Joseph teen disappeared in the company of a convicted felon.

Ashley Martinez, who would now be 16, was last seen leaving the Krug Pool with Christopher Hart, 33, who police say told her he would take her to California. Hart was arrested in September in Olympia, Wash., for a parole violation and was extradited to Jackson County. He has refused to talk about Ashley or her whereabouts.

The girl's mother, Tammy Navinskey, said Wednesday she was still optimistic her daughter was still alive and felt the gathering, featuring pictures, white roses and other personal items was helpful.

"Hopefully this will be a strong enough prayer to get her home," Navinskey said.

St. Joseph Police Sgt. Jill Voltmer said investigators have checked more than 100 tips on Ashley's disappearance but haven't found anything yet.

Among the people attending the candlelight vigil Wednesday was Kelly Jolkowski, founder of Project Jason, an Omaha, Neb.-based nonprofit organization that helps in missing person searches.

"Oftentimes when leads run out, all we have is awareness and hope," Jolkowski said.

STORY: CANDLELIGHT VIGIL MARKS 1 YEAR FOR MISSING GIRL

Wednesday marked the 365th night Tammy Navinskey went to sleep not knowing where her daughter, Ashley Martinez, was.
No phone calls. No letters. No trace of her.

Family and community members gathered Wednesday night in an effort to shed some light on Ms. Martinez’ disappearance, so that some night Mrs. Navinskey can know where her daughter is sleeping.

“It’s been a year and we’ve had no contact with her,” said John Navinskey, Ms. Martinez’ stepfather.

Ms. Martinez, now 16, left town July 6, 2004, and was last seen at Krug Pool — the location of a candlelight vigil conducted in her memory Wednesday night.
A group of about 50 lit candles and prayed at dusk in the pool’s parking lot. Pictures of Ms. Martinez, white roses and some of her personal items adorned an altar-like table in front of the crowd.

“Hopefully this will be a strong enough prayer to get her home,” Mrs. Navinskey said.

The St. Joseph Police Department has received more than 100 tips on Ms. Martinez’ disappearance, but none have checked out, according to Sgt. Jill Voltmer.
“I can assure you we will not give up until we bring Ashley home,” said Ms. Voltmer, lead missing persons investigator for the Police Department. “… That’s my guarantee to John and Tammy.”

Kelly Jolkowski, of Omaha, Neb., said she has spent more than 1,000 nights waiting to find out what had happened to her son, Jason.

Ms. Jolkowski, founder of Project Jason, a non-profit organization that assists in missing persons searches, traveled to St. Joseph Wednesday to speak at the vigil.

“Oftentimes when leads run out, all we have is awareness and hope,” she said, encouraging family and friends to post Ms. Martinez’ posters in as many places as possible. “This is why what you do is so important.”

Ms. Martinez left St. Joseph last year with Chris Hart, 33, a convicted felon. Mr. Hart was arrested in Washington on a parole violation warrant in September and since has been extradited to Jackson County. He continues to refuse to divulge Ms. Martinez’ whereabouts, police say.

The Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the safe return of Ms. Martinez.

Citizens are asked to call the Tips Hotline, 238-TIPS, Ms. Voltmer at 271-4747 with any information regarding the endangered teen runaway.

Ashley's story is featured today on the Project Jason-Voice for the Missing blog. It's a little bit unusual, and was inspired by Ashley and her mother's love of the classic love movies.

Be sure to help out the families of the missing by telling others about the blog. This is just another way we can reach out and let the faces of the missing be seen.

Alcanter steps in ring for missing Missouri girl

By JOSHUA SEIDEN

Kansan Contributing Writer

When Franchesca “The Chosen One” Alcanter of Kansas City, Kan. took to the ring Friday night, she was fighting for much more than just her second round technical knockout of Tiffany Young.

Alcanter, a professional boxer, has pledged to focus on a locating a missing child each bout. For her latest fight, that child was Ashley Renee Martinez, 17, of St. Joseph, Mo. who has been missing since July 6, 2004.

Last seen at Krug Pool wearing blue jean shorts, a black top with red cherries, and white Reebok tennis shoes, Martinez’s case is still considered open by authorities. She is classified as missing and endangered.

Authentic Boxing Club of Kansas City, Mo. hosted Down for the Count 2 at the Beaumont Club at 4050 Pennsylvania in Kansas City, Mo. Alcanter’s bout helped draw the crowds.

“I’ve got a large following,” Alcanter said. “To see them all packed into such a small place tonight is very encouraging.”

When Alcanter’s name was announced, the capacity crowd’s intensity level reached a fever pitch. The turnout and support of the event offered a ray of hope for Martinez’s parents, who were on hand.

Martinez’s father described the experience as “Awesome. Completely awesome,” he said. “This is unbelievable.”

The evening was especially touching for Martinez’s mother, who was grateful for the participants and those in attendance.

“I’m very, very impressed,” she said. “They say there are angels in life. I think we met them.”

Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the St. Joseph Police Department at (816) 271-4777.

Miles For The Missing

Bike ride keeps memories of missing children alive


An annual bike ride called "Miles For The Missing" is making sure missing children will never be forgotten.

Grief brought on by the mysterious disappearance of three teens is why family members, and supporters gathered in Council Bluffs Sunday.

November of 2005 is the last time anyone saw 12-year-old Amber Harris.

"Without these extra resources, we wouldn't have known to do anything but just put out fliers and just look all the time," said Melissa Harris, Amber's mom.

July of 2004 is the last time anyone saw 17-year-old Ashley Martinez of Saint Joseph Missouri.

"We have not heard a word. It's been a nightmare," said Tammy Navinsky. "I don't know how you want to describe it. We spend every day trying to get on the Web sites, trying to find organizations to help."

Jason Jolkowski, 19, of Omaha vanished in June of 2001.

"It's an ongoing trauma. It's also a process of grief that you get stuck in because you don't really know," said Kelly Jolkowski, Jason's mother. "What am I grieving for? Am I grieving because someone's deceased? Am I grieving because they went away from us?"

Project Jason, a support system for families of missing children, sponsors the event in which bikers ride from one to 44 miles.

Kelly Jolkowski, the founder of Project Jason set up Sunday's bike ride.

Midland Empire Mother Still Lives A Nightmare

5/25/2006

"It`s been almost two years in July and days are long," says Tammy Navinskey, the mother of missing teen Ashley Martinez.

The Ashley Martinez case is one of the biggest and most well-known cases that remains unsolved.
Ashley was last seen in 2004 at Krug Pool. Investigators believe she may have ran away with 32-year old convicted felon Christorpher Hart.

"He was apprehended September 5th of 2004 in Olympia, Washington. Ashley wasn`t with him...neither was the stolen car he drove her off in. We still dont know where the car is and he won`t say a word," says Tammy.

Now...almost two years later...Tammy is in a place she never imagined she`d be...no daughter... a lot of questions and...few answers.

"I feel that as time goes on its just getting worse..because like you said there is no closure.
I always pray that she`s alive because its been so long and we havent heard nothing," she says.

As Memorial day weekend approaches...Tammy is saddened by the though of another holiday without her daughter.

"We always did family things together..but you still know that missing element is there," she explains.

But the family tries its best to remember Ashley`s spirit. Still....there`s nothing like having her home.

"You dont realize how bad you miss something till it`s gone.

America`s Most Wanted Helps Midland Empire Family

( Air Date: 11/16/2006 )

America`s Most Wanted wants to shine the national spotlight on a missing teen. Ashley Martinez has been missing for more than two years. Tonight her mother who is praying for answers.

Ashley Martinez`s family hopes the third time`s a charm. Once again they turn to America`s Most Wanted, wanting answers. Ashley`s Mother Tammy Navinskey said, "We`re trying to find a needle in a hay stack. That`s where we`re at at this point." It`s been one year since the last time her story aired on the program and leads have led to dead ends. Slowly the family is coming to grips with the fact that Ashley may never come home. Navinskey said, "In my heart I don`t think my daughter is alive. I hate to say that and I`ll always keep some hope but I fear the worst because I just can`t see her being gone this long with no contact. She wouldn`t just leave 15 years of her life behind with no contact."
