NCIC number: M-308393653
Circumstances: She was abducted by her non-custodial father, Aaron Flint Cox. A photo and vital statistics are posted below. Originally he shared custody of Cara with her mother; however when he began to return her from visitation late his visits were sharply curtailed and it is believed the abduction occured in response to that. Aaron had removed all his belongings and sold his home before the abduction, so it is believed it was premeditated. A felony warrant is on file for him. Aaron dislikes cold weather and thus they are believed to be somewhere with a warm climate.
