Brownsville Police Call for Toddler's Mother's Arrest in Abduction Case
BROWNSVILLE – An alert was sent out by Brownsville police Tuesday afternoon for a missing child.
One-year-old Paris Gomez is believed to be with her mother, 21-year-old Francia Villegas- Amaro, in Mexico.
"The investigators do contacts and the information has been relayed over to them in regard to this particular child and this lady," said Detective JJ Trevino with the Brownsville Police Department.
He told CHANNEL 5 NEWS the child was removed from the mother after she was arrested on narcotics charges upstate.
She was able to travel out of the country after removing a court-ordered ankle monitor.
The detail of where the mother and daughter were last seen is why an Amber Alert mobile notification wasn’t sent out to the public.
"There was no Amber Alert issued because it doesn't meet the criteria and one of them being the fact that we know obviously where she's at," explained the detective.
Trevino said once this happens, an Amber Alert cannot be issued.
"We would like this child to come back to the actual custodial parent," he said.
At this time, Brownsville police don’t believe the one-year-old is in any danger.
There is a warrant out for Amaro’s arrest.
