Lilly Baumann, Emma and Erandi Espinoza and Maria and Tania Juarez, and Christian Garcia found safe

I have just received word from NCMEC that Emma and Erandi Espinoza and Maria and Tania Juarez and Christian Garcia have been found safe and seen numerous articles that say Lilly Baumann has been found safe in Florida after tips from a John Walsh program, and that her mother’s boyfriend has also been arrested. I wish her and her father the best in reuniting. I have resolved their cases, modified the anniversary posts so there are no dead links, and if I find any articles will post them here. The new cases on the site are those of Jacob and Sarah Hoggle, Jaime Macias, Kiran Nair, Ryan Pena, and Pele Watkins. Also, Glenda Tedball has been added to the California Kids pages. this!

    What exactly does “found safe” or “resolved/recovered” mean from your perspective? Most of the cases involve children taken out of the United States by a parent to another country listed also on the poster and 99% of the time that’s where the child is also remains there until at least legal maturity,so if it confirmed the child is there in that country legally due to dual nationality,when do the Americans decide the child is no longer missing? Is it when a final and irrevocable court decision is rendered against the parent who wants the child back in the United States? When the parent who made the claims decides to no longer pursue a public campaign? And when it is confirmed the sought after child is out of the United States jurisdiction out of the country altogether and the American parent is informed by legitimate authorities (not just public heresy) where their child is,why do the minor child’s name and photo along with other sensitive information remain on the internet for anyone to see? After the parent knows where their child is residing then it is solely a legal matter and any disputes MUST be settled in courts there and International Tribunal! Continuously sharing the sensitive personal information of anyone let alone children is extremely dangerous unless the situation is dire and of the utmost urgency. North American sites like this and others make it seem as if a child with ties to but residing outside the United States or Canada or Mexico is lost forever and until they come back by choice or otherwise deserve constant 24/7/356 public scrutiny!

    That’s actually a good question, and it’s got multiple answers. In these three cases specifically, I know that in one the child was not taken out of the country and was recovered in the same state. For the other two I got a notice from NCMEC that said they had been recovered. I don’t know the family in any of those cases, so I just resolved them without further notice. If you mean more generally, if a notice from NCMEC comes and says a child or children have been recovered, I remove their case and list them as found safe if I don’t know the family. If I do, I ask them about it. In about half of all resolved/recovered listed cases on my site, I don’t know the details and probably never will. In others I get confirmation that the child/children have been found and returned to the left-behind parent from law enforcement, family, or articles in the news. In still other cases, the child who is 18 asks for the case to be removed. Those aren’t listed as resolved/recovered, but do happen sometimes.

    If a child is listed as recovered or found safe, I know they are alive and well. I don’t always get to find out more than that.

    Oh, and yes, there are cases where the situation wasn’t an abduction at all or was otherwise misrepresented, and the other parent proves it to me legally. Those are rare, though – I can think of maybe half a dozen.

    Children who are known to be in another country and are known to that country’s authorities and are legally living there are actually a small fraction of cases.

    Don’t ever expect the Americans to respect a child’s privacy or tell the truth!I had to sternly command the various agencies to remove the information and photos IMMEDIATELY and threaten law suit upon discovering the data online several years ago. Because my children were in no way lost or missing. My wife and myself were fully aware of our children’s whereabouts under the primary care of my mother in the country I grew up in as they had indeed been there for many years. A 100% valid but unfavorable to us court order had already been issued by my country of citizenship, our case of wrongful retention having been previously heard twicebut the clause granting us liberal access was not being enforced.Neither were born in the United States,had any American documets,and had never lived here,but upon moving here with my American wife,we had simply asked US courts for assistance to reaffirm our rights and force my relatives to comply with the existing custody order. At no point did we ever expect for our children to be sent to the United States, because Russian courts had said it wasn’t to be so and had granted my mother sole possession of all of the children’s Russian issued identifying documents, both external and internal passports. We just wanted the Russian court order properly enforced to allow us to speak to and see our children on the webcam, give gifts,and visit. My relatives flat out REFUSED to negotiate about the visitation, because of sites like this and NCMEC and Charleyproject reporting that my mother had warrants out for her arrest and the children had been abducted out of the United States, making my wife and I seem like shameless liars and attention seekers.We pleaded for the American “do folders” NOT to do this,because my mother being a long time refugee from a Communist nation was VERY LIKELY to flee the known whereabouts with our children if she felt threatened. They didn’t respect our privacy or wishes though and she did just that vanishing with our children, both my younger brothers (who were very involved with my children daily by living on the same city block) and stepfather as well as Russian authorities refusing to cooperate further due to negative American meddling. Do gooders blame ethnicity (wife is Black,I’m Eurasian, my mother and relatives are Asian) for the uncooperativeness of Russian authorities, but in truth the Russian authorities felt they are protecting the children’s privacy and rights by allowing my mother to be with them wherever she wants to be in secrecy. My children were NEVER lost or missing untl Americans began interfering in the situation and were kept from my wife and myself until 2013(11 yrs after FBI illegally issued arest warrants+ nearly 17 years since children began to be under my mother’s primary care) when both walked into the Russian Embassy in ******Stan with their Russian Identifying Documents and at ages 19 and almost 22 demanded to be reclassified as normal not stolen or kidnapped or abducted persons, because in truth they had lived in Central Asia for 17 years. Only in August 2014 were all posters removed.
