Couple Murdered Over 35 Years Ago In S.C. Still Unidentified

 Jane Doe

Above photos are two sketches showing what both victims looked like.

The female victim a.k.a “Jane Doe”  is described as having medium length brunette hair and blue-green/gray eyes. She was about 5’5” (165 cm) weighing roughly 105 pounds (47 Kg), thin frame and was estimated to be between the ages of 18-20 years.  Jane didn’t have any surgical scar. She is described as being an attractive young woman. She had pierced ears. Her eyelashes were very long. She had two small beauty marks on her left cheek and one on the right side of her face. She also had a mole on her right calf. Her legs were unshaven. She didn’t have elaborate dental work. Her upper and lower right wisdom teeth were missing and she had fillings in all back teeth. Her front teeth probably gave an even appearance when she smiled.

The male victim a.k.a “John Doe”  is described as having brown hair and brown eyes. He was about 6 feet tall (185 cm) and 150 pounds (70 Kg). He was estimated to be in his 20’s. He has a 4” (10 cm) appendectomy scar and two 2” (5 cm) scars on his right shoulder. John Doe had very elaborate and expensive dental work with bridges and crowns. He had an acrylic or porcelain crown on the left front tooth and fillings in most upper teeth. He also had some missing teeth in top and bottom but noticeable in top back left. He was missing his lower wisdom teeth.

The couple was discovered murdered at 6.20 AM on August 9, 1976 on Locklair Road, a rural dirt road between Interstate 95 and S.C. 341 in Sumpter County, South Carolina, USA. The couple had been shot at close range several times: in the back, chest and throat and had been dead for less than 24 hours. They weren’t carrying any identification and their identities remain unidentified more than three decades later.

They had no money on them when their bodies were discovered but they seemed well to do. Their skin was smooth and had olive undertone making them look as possibly from another country than USA which would explain the reason why no-one local has come forward. The pair may have been hitchhiking through the country. It has been speculated that they might be brother and sister. Any money could have been stolen from the unknown killer.

The couple were buried laying besides each other  in August 1977 in Bethel (SC) United Methodist Church cemetery under two bronze plaques reading: “Male Unknown, Aug. 9, 1976” and “Female unknown, Aug. 9, 1976”.

John Doe was wearing a red T-shirt with “Coors America’s Fine Light Beer” written on the front and “Camel Challenger GT Sebring 75” on the back, faded Levi’s blue jeans and didn’t have any underwear on. He wore a Bulova Accutron yellow gold watch, serial number H918803 on his left wrist and a 14 karat gold ring with a gray linde star stone and the initials JPF engraved inside. He also had a box of Grants Truck stop matches in one of his pocket.

When found, Jane Doe was wearing an unbleached muslin blouse, a pink knit halter top that tied in the front, cut-off Levi blue jean shorts and a pair of wedge-heeled sandals with lavender, pink and purple straps. She had no underwear on. She was wearing three silver rings resembling American Indian or Mexican costume jewelry. One had red, white and blue stones, another a feather scroll with rust and green stone an and the third was oblong black stone with three green flecks.

University of Missouri Student Missing For Almost One Year

Photo of Phoenix Coldon taken the same year of her disappearance

Short description: Missing since 12/18/11 in unincorporated St. Louis, Missouri North County (Spanish Lake area). Her car was found running near the intersection of 9th Street & St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois, keys in the ignition, motor running. She has not been seen or heard from since.

Full story: Phoenix Coldon, then 23, a college student who attended the University of Missouri when she went missing on December 18, 2011 in St. Louis. She was last seen in her vehicle, pulling out of the driveway at her family home around noon. A few hours later, around 3p.m. her 1998 four-door Chevrolet Blazer was found abandoned at the intersection of 9th Street and St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois (Spanish Lake Area) with the engine still running, it was impounded and it took authorities two weeks to connect the car to the young woman’s disappearance. 

Phoenix’s parents, Goldia and Lawrence Coldon are devastated and have for the past eleven months they have been desperately seeking any information about their daughter whereabouts. They said the last time they saw their daughter, she was talking on her cell phone, then she backed out of the driveway and drove away, but none of Phoenix’s friends claim they were on the phone with her at that time and the caller on the other end remains unknown.

Phoenix’s case is very similar to the disappearance of Stacey English, 36, who went missing in Atlanta. on December 26, 2011, one week after Phoenix disappeared. Both woman’s vehicles were found abandoned and running less than 20 miles from their home. One of the last people to see Stacey was Robert Kirk, a friend from St. Louis, and although the two were not together, Robert was currently living with Stacey at her condo at the time she went missing, the two had gotten into  a verbal altercation and Stacey kicked him out. He has returned to St. Louis and Police say he has been cooperative and they have not named him or anyone else a suspect in Stacey’s disappearance.

Disappearance of Jennifer Marcum last seen at the Denver International Airport

Jennifer Lynn Marcum – Missing since: February 17, 2003 Location: Denver, Colorado

→ On the Morning of February 17, 2003, Jennifer Marcum, 25, drove her brown four-door 1999 Saturn to the federal detention center in Denver to visit her boyfriend, Steve Ennis, who was suspected of being involved with running a large distribution ring for the drug Ecstasy. Shortly after the visit at approximately 11:00am, she was seen near the Denver International Airport. That would be the last time her family and friends would hear from their loved one.

Shortly after she went missing her vehicle was spotted in the airport parking-lot, abandoned. Authorities first initial guess was that she boarded a plane. They searched the area, asking airport employee’s if they’ve seen the young woman, they also checked all flights that departed on 02/17/03 but Jennifer wasn’t on any of them. They looked at her cell-phone records but the phone calls stop abruptly around the same time she disappeared.

Having trouble with the mysteries disappearance, Denver police asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for assistance but despite dozens of tips, searches, interviews and media publicity, Jennifer Marcum’s remains missing.

FBI investigating Jennifer’s case heard that she may have had plans to travel to the Spokane area of Washington and possibly New York but it is unknown if she arrived at either destination and foul-play is suspected. Many people believe Jennifer’s disappearance is connected to her boyfriend’s illegal activity, but no evidence proves this theory. According to Steve, Jennifer would frequently visit him at the prison and its possible that someone may have known her routine and followed her after the visit. Police do have a suspect in the case but without a body to prove a crime there is little they can do.

Suspect: Scott Kimball, a convicted serial killer who is currently serving 70 years in prison is also a suspect in several other unsolved cases including the disappearance of Jennifer. In November, 2010, Kimball wrote a nine page later to a news outlet proclaiming his innocence in several cases involving murdered/missing woman, saying he wasn’t in the areas at the time the crimes were committed.

Photo of Jennifer with longer, brunette hair, which is her natural color. She changed her style dramatically prior to her disappearance.

Description: Caucasian female standing 5’6” tall and weighing approximately 120 (slim body frame.) She has naturally brown hair (although she frequently dyed it light) hair blue eyes. Both her ears were pierced at the time of her disappearance and she also had breast implants with unique serial-numbers on them. She was wearing a intrauterine device which is used for birth-control.

Aliases: May use the last names Hoyle or Wiggin

Date of birth: June 15, 1977, Jennifer was 25-years-old in 2003 and would be 34-years-old this year.

North Carolina’s Oldest Missing Person Case

11/09/12, NORTH CAROLINA — A native of Bladenboro, Leila Bryan and her husband, E.C. “Eddie” Bryan, lived at Carolina Beach. The couple worked for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Leila had been enrolled in nursing school when the couple became engaged and were married. Bryan got her an office job at the railroad. Leila’s mother disapproved of the marriage, as Eddie was divorced.

The weekend of the disappearance, Mary Rachel, 4, and Leila, 36, were headed for Bladenboro to visit her family. Because of tension between her husband and mother, Eddie decided not to accompanying his wife and daughter. (Some reports claim the two were suppose to stop at a local food market as well.)

She planned to leave either Friday or Saturday, possibly riding with her brother, Berry Lewis. Mary Rachel’s Sunday shoes were polished, and several rings Leila always wore were found at the Raleigh Street home. The rings were Leila’s favorites, and she rarely left home without them, according to friends.

On May 10, 1941, Eddie Bryan told investigators that Leila said she was driving to a store a few blocks from their home. Bryan later told investigators that Mary Rachel asked to ride along.

Leila Bryan (36)

Mary Rachel Bryan (4)

At Carolina Beach at the time, according to town records, there was a small grocery store catering to fishermen and vacationers, a store similar to a general store, and a combination grocery/ department store. All three of the stores were in the same general area, near the modern intersection of U.S. 421 and Channel Drive. Where Leila went shopping that evening, if she did, has never been discovered. Neither mother nor child was ever seen again.

Pictured: Aerial Shot of Carolina Beach

Berry Lewis went to Carolina Beach to visit his sister around 9 p.m. on May 10, 1941. Lewis awakened Bryan, who told his brother-in-law that Leila had gone to the store. Lewis apparently drove around the beach for an hour or so, looking for Leila and Mary Rachel. Figuring he must have somehow missed them, he returned to the Bryan home, located in the 200 block of North Raleigh Avenue. Leila Bryan’s 1935 Ford coupe was still missing. Husband, brother, or both called police.

Bryan told police he was making concrete forms in the couple’s garage when Leila had come home around 6:30 p.m. and made supper. Leila and Mary Rachel had spent the afternoon on the beach.

Local attention was intense as well-Leila’s family was well-liked and widely known in the Bladenboro area. Searchers were combing the island and the surrounding areas for any clue of Leila, Mary Rachel, or the Ford coupe. Professional divers searched areas where a car could be driven into the Cape Fear River, Snow’s Cut, and the Intracoastal Waterway. Officers visited gas stations from 50 to 100 miles away, since Eddie Bryan told investigators he didn’t think the Ford had more than half tank of gasoline when Leila left.

At the request of a newspaper, officers in Pinellas , Florida, began searching for the woman when the pair was reported spotted nearby. Officers questioned some of Eddie Bryan’s family who lived in the area, but no clues were located. Stories and advertisements were placed in newspapers across the country as leads and suspected sightings were checked and rechecked.

Officers thought they had a break later that summer when someone found a piece of automobile windshield in Snow’s Cut (a large canal connecting the Cape Fear River and the Intracoastal Waterway north of Carolina Beach). It was just a few feet offshore, out from a little beach. It was in maybe 18 inches of water at the outside, and had been there for a while. Investigators determined the glass could have come from a 1935 Ford, but couldn’t be sure. The windshield fragment was sent to the SBI lab in Raleigh, but as the case grew cold over the years, the glass disappeared.

Investigators examined three possible fates of Leila and Mary Rachel: Leila could have committed suicide, taking her daughter with her, by driving into the Waterway, the Cape Fear River or off Snow’s Cut;
Leila could have run away, hiding her own and Mary Rachel’s identities to escape what some reported was an unhappy marriage;
or, the woman and child were murdered, and their bodies hidden, and the car dismantled or destroyed.

Investigators never found sufficient evidence to suggest anyone killed Leila and Mary Rachel. No one was ever charged. Nor was there an indication by friends or family that she had ever considered suicide.

 

According to the State Bureau of Investigation, the case is now closed.

Baby Kidnapped Over A Decade Ago Still Missing

This segment of unsolved mysteries was aired on August 28, 2001, several months after the kidnapping. Jacqueline’s case was also aired on America’s Most Wanted (web exclusive.)

[image]

Photo of Jacqueline Castaneda taken shortly before she was kidnapped

Birth name: Jacqueline Castaneda-Vasquez
Location of incident: 
Avondale, Phoenix, Arizona
Date of birth: 
January 14, 2001
Date of abduction: 
May 6, 2001
Other: 
She is described as a Caucasian/Hispanic female with brown hair and brown eyes and a heart-shaped birthmark on her upper arm. On the day the baby was kidnapped, she was wearing a white outfit and was strapped into a green and white car seat. She would be 12-years-old (and turning thirteen in a couple of months.)

Short description of abduction: Jacqueline Vasquez was just a baby when she was last seen at a swap meet located on 12300 West Buckeye Road located in Avondale, AZ.  At the time of her disappearance, Jacqueline was wearing a white outfit and was strapped into a white and green car-seat carrier. She has a heart-shaped birthmark on her upper right arm.
According to police, the baby’s father dropped off Vasquez and her family at the event Sunday morning. An older family member ran a booth at the meet. Despite leads from the local community, Jacqueline has not been seen since she disappeared. Police have no suspect’s, but they would like to speak to the woman in this sketch

Full story: In May of 2001, Olivia Castaneda arrived at a swap meet outside Phoenix, Arizona, with two of her three  children, Niely Castaneda who was just a toddler, and Jacqueline Castaneda who was 4-months-old going on 5-months, and the children’s grandmother (a.k.a Olivia’s mother)

“My husband dropped me off there with my two babies, my two year-old Niely, and Jacqueline, my four month-old baby. I took Jacqueline out of the car with her car seat, and Niely, I took her walking.”

Before meeting her mother inside, Olivia needed to use the rest room. She finally found a portable bathroom. Finding it too cramped and dirty, she made a decision that would lead to tragedy:

“Jacqueline couldn’t fit inside, so I just took my two year-old, Niely, inside the rest room ’cause she could have walked away if I left her outside. I was in the rest room, like, for a minute, when I came out, Jacqueline wasn’t there anymore.”

Hoping that her mother had taken the baby, Olivia rushed into the swap meet:

“I felt more upset and more nervous when I saw my mom was by herself. She didn’t have the baby. And that’s when I felt I was going to die. I mean, I just–I didn’t know what to do.”

After 20 minutes of searching booth to booth, the police were called. According to Sgt. Mark Lucas of the Avondale Police Department, they immediately sealed off the swap meet:

“There was an officer stationed at all the exits and along the fence line. And as cars were leaving, we would check the vehicles as they left. As people were leaving the side exits through the gates, we would go ahead and check them, make sure they weren’t carrying an infant or had a car-carrier.”

Witnesses reported a suspicious woman lurking around the rest-room shortly before the kidnapping and a vehicle speeding away moments after the incident. The vehicle is described as a  red, full-size, (possibly Ford) Pick up truck. According to the website “25missingpersons,” authorities have not yet connected the vehicle to the abduction.

To see a small composite sketch photo of the unknown suspect please click: Charley Project.

Witnesses description of the woman matched and a sketch of the woman was made, but she has yet to be identified.

But despite police standing by exits, the baby was never rescued and her family remains heartbroken.

Many people have had their own theories and assumptions, one being, that the kidnapper was a female who couldn’t have children of her own and desperately wanted a child and jumped at the first opportunity to steal another mother’s baby to raise as her own. Police list her possible locations as “National” however, she could be ANYWHERE and authorities are hoping that somebody is alert and recognizes the child who will be turning thirteen on January 14, 2013. The most identifying characteristic is the heart-shaped birthmark on her arm.

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children came out with an age-progressed photo of what Jacqueline might of looked like at age 6, today, she would be 12-years-old.

Disappearance of a toddler at a bowling alley remains unsolved

Pictured above: Teekah Lewis, photo taken almost one month to the day of Teekah’s disappearance. Her case is a classic case of child abduction and almost fourteen years later, her case remains unsolved.

Age progressed photo of what Teekah Lewis might look like at 16 years of age

11/07/12, TACOMA, WA — Teekah Lewis was just a toddler when she was abducted while on a family outing. The 2-year-old vanished on the night of January 23, 1999 while she was with over a dozen family members at a bowling alley which is now “New Frontier Lanes” located on Center Street in Tacoma, Washington.

At approximately 10:15pm, the tot was in the arcade section pretending to play videos games, and the last time her family saw her she was enjoying herself and was all smiles. It only took a few moments to turn around and realize she was missing and that’s when panic struck.

A frantic search ensued, but the little was nowhere insight.

There was over 300 people at the bowling alley on the night Teekah disappeared yet nobody witnessed anything. According to family members, she was last seen playing the race-car video game which was only a few feet away from family and approximately five or six feet away from the exit door.

“There’s somebody in that bowling alley that knows something. there was over 300 people and not one person seen anything. i can’t believe it.” Teekah’s mother, Theresa Lewis said back in 2010.

Investigators interviewed hundreds of people threw-out the years including many of the people in the bowling alley that night, but no arrests were ever made and Teekah was never located and almost fourteen years later, her whereabouts remain unknown.

Every so many years, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children would distribute a age-progressed photo of what the missing child might look like and each time, callers would call in with possible matches only to find out it was a Miss-identification.

Age-progressed photo of what Teekah might have looked like at age thirteen, she turned sixteen-years-old this past year.

 Tacoma Police have said the case remains active and although they don’t have that one missing piece of the puzzle, they still get tips every so often and one of those tips came up 2010 when Theresa Lewis said she received a new tip from a man in his 40′s at a vigil that was being held on her daughters tenth anniversary since her disappearance. The unidentified man was quote as saying that he had visions of the missing child.

 The information was then relayed to police and when asked for details, Theresa said: “There’s just more to the story. I just can’t say. I wish I could, but I can’t,” English said. “All I can say is that it’s a roller coaster.”

 Investigators have spoken to the tipster, whom he only described as an “area man.” The tip prompted Tacoma police to begin digging at the Native Garden at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, but nothing every came from that lead and the case started to go cold.

Authorities have asked for the public’s assistance in helping identify a vehicle seen on the night Teekah disappeared. Witnesses reported seeing a maroon (late-model) 1980′s or early 90′s Pontiac Grand Am with dark windows and a spoiler who was at the bowling alley’s general area on 01/23/99

This case has been featured on TV shows including America’s Most Wanted, the episode is a web exclusive and can be found online. 

Teekah Lewis was last seen wearing a tweedy-bird sweatshirt with white sweatpants and carrying a little clear tot size purse. Some other facts below.

  • Has eczema with a skin coloration on her face and left side of buttocks
  • Has asthma which may require medical attention
  • Has dimples when she smiles
  • Has curly dark hair with natural red and grey highlights
  • Has brown eyes
  • Was 3′feet, weighing 35 pounds when she was last seen
  • Both ears were pierced in 1999
  • She is Biracial – Caucasian/Native-American/African-American
  • Her birthday also falls on Independence Day (07/04/96)

Her loved ones are still praying for a miracle, they’ve said they will never give up on her safe return, with Theresa saying: “I hope nothing bad’s happening to her. I believe she’s still alive. I’ve never had that gut feeling that she wasn’t”

In July, 2012 Tacoma police searched a local home for any evidence regarding the missing toddler. The search of the house in the 800 block of South Hawthorne Street came after authorities contacted a man who pleaded guilty to a child-luring at a different bowling alley in Tacoma, WA. According to Detectives,  they are still evaluating this part of the investigation, but have not discovered anything significant at this point. But despite another dead-end, police and loved ones of the missing girl remain hopeful that one day this case will get solved.

January 27, 2013 will mark the fourteen years since Teekah Lewis was last seen alive and her family continues to celebrate her life, with her birthday falling on the 4th of July,  every year her mother bakes her a cake, buys her balloons and writes a message to the toddler on it. In her mind, her daughter is still a toddler who hasn’t aged, despite the fact that she’d be in her teens today.

New Reconstruction of Pasco County John Doe Found Murdered Over 23 Years Ago

experts

Reconstruction of murdered man found in Dade City, Florida in the Winter of ’89

11/06/12, DADE CITY, FLORIDA  — Forensics experts from University of South Florida have teamed up with the Pasco County Sheriff’s office to recreate the face of an unidentified “John Doe” who was located deceased near an orange grove in the Winter of 1989. The reconstruction of this individual is fairly new despite the fact that his identity has remained unknown for over twenty-three years.

The remains of ‘John Doe’ were found on January 24, 1989 by an artifact hunter in Dade City, FL and authorities believe he may have been dead for up to two years prior to his discovery. According to Pasco County Police, he had been shot twice in the head and when his skeletal remains were discovered he was nothing more than bones and clothes, weathered by years in the open field.

Shoes: Together, they have been able to ascertain that John Doe was a white male between 30 and 50 Years old. He was 5'7

John Doe was wearing cowboy boots (pictured above) when he was discovered in an open field near an orange grove.

He is described as a Caucasian adult male between the ages of 30 and 50 Years old, 5’7” inches tall with long    auburn hair. He also had several tattoos which included a Confederate flag, a Nazi symbol and the initials HFD and had a pair of brown Givenchy glasses on him. 

He was wearing a ‘Black Hills of South Dakota’ sleeveless shirt with a Native American picture on the back Indian on back and wore weathered light brown cowboy boots with mismatched socks, one of the socks were white with red stripes and the other was grey with blue strips.

He was found wearing blue mechanic-type pants with the name RANDY labelled on it, which could be a big clue in identifying him.

‘We’re really looking for the public’s involvement in this case because that’s what’s going to solve it,’ Detective David Boyer from the Pasco County Police Department.

‘There’s somebody out there that once they see this photo, it’s going to bring back some memories,’ Pasco Sheriff Nocco said. ‘Somebody knows something out there.’

Five Month’s Later And Still No Answers For The Family Of Brittney Nicole Wood Missing From Mobile, Alabama

10/31/12 MOBILE, ALABAMA → Nineteen-year-old Brittney Wood went missing in late Spring. She was last seen on the afternoon of May 30, 2012 leaving her home on Tillman’s corner in Mobile, AL to go visit her friend Courtney. Somewhere along the road she ended up in Fairhope in the Styx River area to visit her uncle Donald “Donnie” Holland. She was suppose to be home that evening and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Unfortunately Hallond was the last known person to have seen Brittney but committed suicide by a self-inflicted gun-shot wound less than 48 hours after her disappearance and according to Baldwin County Police Department, Holland was being investigated for a sex crime at the time of his death. Other family members have since been arrested in an undercover investigation on sexual abuse which was said to be unrelated to Brittney’s case.

Initially Brittney’s mother, Chessie Wood, said that the distance from Courtney’s home to her uncle’s home was too far for Brittney to walk, so she believes that Brittney must have gotten a ride from someone. It was later learned that her uncle (Holland) picked her at approximately 7:30pm that night. The reason why she decided to go with Holland isn’t totally clear but what is clear is that Holland was the last known person to have seen Brittney Wood alive.

Her case was listed on The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children two months after her disappearance and many people including her mother have tried very hard to keep her face and story out there.

Brittney’s case is being investigated by Mobile Police Department who at first didn’t take her disappearance seriously and assumed she was just a runaway and believed she was still alive hiding out somewhere. An officer for the Mobile Police Department made a statement back in July, two months after Brittney was last seen, saying: “There have been a number of arrests with other family members. It is interesting; but we don’t have anything right now that says that she’s in any sort of trouble.”

But Brittney’s mother always suspected someone was wrong and that she doesn’t believe her daughter is alive.

“I don’t think my baby’s alive; I just don’t. I wish I could, but I don’t,” said Wood.

She also went on to say that she left home in good spirits and had no reason to willingly runaway, nor would she leave her daughter. She also said that Brittney didn’t have a car, money and didn’t bring any extra possessions including extra clothing and none of her friends have spoken to her since May.

There is a $15,000 reward being offered for information leading to the recovery of Brittney Nicole Wood.

 → In November 2001, Annette Carla Clark was abducted from New Paltz, New York to Cuernavaca, Mexico by her non-custodial mother, Gloria Torres Velez Clark. Her father, Steve Clark, has full custody of Annette and has been searching for her. There is a U.S. federal warrant for the arrest of Gloria Torres Velez Clark.
 
Annette’s maternal grandmother, Victoria Velez Aranda, lives in Cuernavaca, Mexico and Annette has been seen at her home numerous times. Gloria’s siblings also live in or near the area and the family continues to hide Annette and Gloria.
 
Gloria Torres Velez and Annette Carla Clark were last seen in the town of Colima, state of Colima, Mexico in October of 2007. Annette was placed in a DIF (Mexican family services) facility and returned to her mother in an extrajudicial (illegal) action before her father could complete pending legal action to have her returned to the United States.
 
Throughout this ordeal, Mexican agencies and officials have acted with deceit, criminality and malfeasance, violating international law and international agreements such as the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and the UN Convention on the Rig hts of the Child. These agencies and officials have also violated Mexican criminal statutes against the abduction and hiding of a minor. The actions of DIF (Mexican family services) in Cuernavaca and Colima have been particularly reprehensible. Mexican conduct in this case is one small example of a larger problem of a failed state.
 
If you spot Annette or her mother in Mexico, do not contact Mexican agencies. Please contact the FBI or Citizen Services at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, or contact us at this site. The abducting family will react with hostility if you approach them about this matter. Annette will likely exhibit traits of extreme parental alienation and Stockholm Syndrome.
 
International parental kidnapping is a serious form of child abuse. Help reunite Annette with her father, Steve Clark, and other family members who continue to look for her, with the hope she will have a chance to come home to the life that was stolen from her.
 
Annette’s ears are pierced. She uses the name Carla. She also uses her mother’s maiden name Torres Velez. Annette is light-skinned.
 
Annette has a fraudulent birth certificate issued by the municipality of Jiutepec in the state of Morelos.
