Vital statistics: Andres is a biracial (hispanic/white) male. He was born on April 19, 2009. Brown hair, green eyes. Was seven at the time. Diego is a biracial (hispanic/white) male.

Circumstances: They were abducted by their non-custodial father, Andrzej Szczudlo. Photos of him are not available. He is a white (Polish) male who was sixty-six at the time. He told the childrens' mother, Yacquelin Tamayo, that he wanted to take them on a vacation to the Dominican Republic. He initially took them to his hometown of Zielona Gora, Poland. They were located there and Tamayo initiated Hague proceedings for the children. The court ultimately ruled that they had to return to Canada, but they vanished again on June 2, 2017. They may be still in Poland. Andrzej has claimed that the courts were biased against him because of his age.
