Press Release:  (Bishop Police Department)

Date of Event: August 21, 2014 at 12:35pm.


Angel Jacoba Schat

Angel Jacoba Schat

Type of Event:278.5 PC- Child Abduction/Violation of a custody order.

Location:US Highway 95 near the Walker Lake area.

Suspect:SCHAT, Angel Jacoba. 43 year old female, Bishop Resident. 

On Thursday, August 21 at 12:35pm, the Bishop Police Department received a request from Sean Singleton for a welfare check on

his 4 year old son living in Bishop. Singleton also told police the mother might be in the Reno Nevada area, and he believed

she might be trying to leave the state.

The residence in Bishop where the mother and child were believed to be at was checked; it was determined no one was at

the residence, and it appeared to be vacant. Bishop Police immediately distributed a “Be on the lookout” with local agencies;

all counties within California, as well as neighboring states. Further information was gathered regarding SCHAT, and it was

determined the child may be in danger while in the care of his mother and she was not allowed to take the child out of

Inyo County.

With assistance from the California Highway Patrol, the Bishop Police Department issued an AMBER Alert for the blue 2001

Chevy Silverado driven by SCHAT, Angel Jacoba. Information was sent nationwide regarding the child abduction.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was also notified.

At 5:21pm, we received information that SCHAT might be at the Reno/Tahoe International Airport in Reno Nevada.

Video surveillance showed SCHAT, and the 4 year old child leaving the airport in the blue Chevy Silverado in an unknown

direction of travel. At 7:34pm; the Chevy Silverado was possibly seen in Lee Vining, California; but the vehicle was never located.

At 8:40pm, the Bishop Police Department received notification that SCHAT had been located on US Highway 95 around the Walker

Lake area. Mineral County Nevada Deputies received a 911 call from a subject who was behind the Chevy Silverado and deputies

were able to stop the vehicle. SCHAT; reportedly resisted arrest and deputies had to use force to subdue her. A plastic toy handgun

was also located inside the vehicle.  SCHAT, Angel Jacoba was arrested on child abduction charges as well as possible new charges

with Mineral County Nevada. The 4 year old was unharmed and was taken into protective custody.

SCHAT will be extradited back to Bishop as soon as possible and will be charged with 278.5 PC- Child Abduction/Violation of a

custody order and 273(a) PC-Child Endangerment.

    What does a plastic toy handgun have to do with this story? I found that a very odd.

      A plastic toy handgun; just anti gun liberal bs, probably just the kids toy. No big deal.

    I love Sierra Wave because it teaches me how not to live.
    Admittedly, I am dumb as a rock, yet, thanks to Sierra Wave, I can avoid the following living problems.

    Drunk or stoned driving
    Domestic violence
    Picking up artifacts or Native stone work
    Not taking my insulin hiking
    Running toward Trouble
    Running for public office
    Drinking from bishop creek

    Child Abduction? It’s the kids mother, how can you really charge a mother with kidnapping her own kid? Sounds like the X husband won this round.

    • Desert Tortoise August 22, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

      She was under a court order, that’s what a child custody order is, not to take her child out of Inyo County. When she did it became a kidnapping. Is that hard to understand? Seeing as how the place she lived was vacated it didn’t exactly look like they went on a trip to the grocery store. They were packed and gone. That’s kidnapping.

      It looks like the court had good reason to issue that order and she knew she was breaking the law taking the child to Nevada. Resisting arrest wasn’t very smart either. I can understand perfectly why the dad was afraid she would take off with the child and maybe he would never see his boy again. People do this faily consistently and those child custody orders are written specifically prevent this, or else. Now she gets the or-else.

        Let’s hear from her lawyer, who did leave a message that there is another side to the story. Benett Kessler

        Another amazing work of witch hunt conjecture. Your psychic ability to know people’s intention and future makes our justice system obsolete.

      • LCE August 23, 2014 at 11:06 am #

        Really? She was under a court order not to leave the county? Do you work for the court and have access to that information or are you just psychic? So the attorney says the boys father has been in prison for most of the boys life. Then he randomly calls the Bishop PD from Florida to request a welfare check and they what? Look through a window and feel like the house looks abandoned. Give me a break. Keystone cop work at best. She was free to travel out of the county and the state. Get your stories straight before spouting off.

          LCE- in my opinion child abduction and kidnapping charges ought to be saved for strangers and nut-balls, not their mother and fathers. Every family has their problems. Whoever issued this amber alter jumped the gun and needs to stop crying wolf!

      If one parent has custody of a child and the other parent takes the child in violation of a court order they can be charged with a crime….. It doesn’t matter if its your own child….

      • Benett Kessler August 22, 2014 at 4:13 pm #

        Read the story just posted. Angel Schat’s attorney says she followed the legal custody agreement and was allowed to travel with her child. BK

    I have one simple question,,,, who the heck is she….With the name I will assume she has something to do with the bakery..

    • Mr. NRA August 22, 2014 at 2:39 pm #

      She is the Daughter of Erik and Shea Schat.

          Good job throwing rocks. Cheers to you and your amazingly perfect family.

    I may have this wrong, but considering the different locations they tracked her & ultimately caught up with her, it sounds like she was heading back in the direction of Bishop.

    I’m also curious as to why the toy gun is a part of this. I can see it being noteworthy if it were being used to suggest it was a real gun but otherwise, having a little boy & a toy gun is not shocking to me.

    Did Angel’s attorney say when he would make a statement about the incident? Considering the fact that Angel is a part of very prominent family in the area I hope it be soon. I’m sure there is a lot of gossip going around to what happened. Also, what is up with the toy gun?

    • Benett Kessler August 22, 2014 at 4:12 pm #

      We have no information of the relevancy of the toy gun. The story quoting Angel Schat’s attorney, Rick Wood is now posted. BK

    I met this lady in mammoth and the boy too. She is apart of the schat family that owns and runs the chain of bakeries. There is a second side to this story, she is a very nice lady. No one knows what goes on with her x husband, maybe he threatened to kill her and felt she needed to protect herself and the child.

    • Wayne Deja August 22, 2014 at 4:46 pm #

      John….With a toy gun ????

    A mother travels with her child. And is arrested for child abduction.

    This is not your father’s America. However, it may be your father’s Soviet Union. Or your father’s Kafkaesque disjointed reality.

      Yes Yes Yes, that’s what I’m talking about!…
      There’s no more culture in the “land of the free” anymore, besides this culture of consumerism, which is hand and hand with this culture of fear we subconsciously live in..

      Culture = Values of the People
      Values of the People = Culture

    This a fine example of what we call news these daze, getting into peoples personal business is popular.

    • Benett Kessler August 23, 2014 at 9:16 am #

      When incidents involve taxpayer supported law enforcement, fire or SAR, it does become news. BK

    • Lorijellybean August 23, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

      Earl, When my smartphone blares so loud and randomly from an Amber Alert, I nearly jump out of my skin.. it’s becomes a story.
