Sean Ogawa Hillman

Last seen in Seattle, Washington on July 5, 2008

Vital statistics: Biracial (asian/white) male. Born on March 7, 2003. Light brown hair, brown eyes. He was born in Washington state. He may use the last name "Ogawa." He speaks English and Japanese. Was five at the time.

Circumstances: He was abducted by his non-custodial mother, Mayumi Ogawa Hillman. Photos and vital statistics for her are not available. She took him to Japan on what was supposed to be a two week visit but did not return him to his father, Carl Hillman on the agreed-upon date. At the time they shared joint custody of him but Carl has since been awarded full custody and those rights have been acknowledged by the Japanese courts. A warrant for custodial interference has been issued for her. They are thought to still be in Japan, possibly with relatives.
