Reward Offered For Missing Arizona Girls

January 30, 2013 – TUSCON, AZ —

Investigators believe one man is the common link in two missing-girl cases.

11-month-old Estella Lovemore went missing this past Sunday, and 2-year-old Caroline Oddo has been missing since November, 2012.

Luis Palacio is officially considered a suspect in one of the cases and a person of interest in the other. Palacio is the biological father of Oddo. He’s also the boyfriend of Lovemore’s mother, Danielle Lovemore.

The Tucson Police Department issued a felony arrest warrant in Palacio’s name accusing him of custodial interference in Oddo’s case. Meanwhile, Marana police consider Palacio a person of interest in the Lovemore disappearance.

Estella went missing Sunday when her mother reportedly took her from a birthday party at Gymnastics World in Marana. Richter Lewis, Estella’s father, said Child Protective Services told him that Estella had been abducted.

They said my daughter had been abducted by Danielle, and that’s pretty much all I heard about it from them,” Lewis said.

“I didn’t even have a Facebook account until last night, and I’m doing this just to find Ella. My main concern is trying to find my daughter and get her back home.”

Oddo’s mother, Anna Oddo, described Palacio as a violent man who hurt her and embarrassed her on several occasions.

She said she never witnessed Palacio hurting their daughter, but feels he is capable of doing so based on what he’s done to her.

Police say Estella Lovemore has already suffered a broken elbow and multiple bumps and bruises. Police did not determine how she was injured, but CPS removed her from her home.

Police say her mother’s reported abduction of her Sunday only placed her in harm’s way.

Marana Police Sgt. Jose Alvarez says, “Right now we don’t know where she’s at and we’re concerned for her safety. So until we find out further and know that she’s safe, we’re going to call her a missing and endangered person to give her heightened awareness.”

It is not entirely clear that Palacio and Lovemore are together, but police saw the couple together in November when Estella suffered her broken elbow, and Marana police say Lovemore is five months pregnant with Palacio’s child.

A reward up to $1,000 will go to the person whose tip leads to an arrest in each unsolved case.

DC Baby Kidnapped 30 Years Ago Still Missing Today

Above is a photo of April Nicole Williams as a newborn – below is a age-progressed photo of what April may look like at 27 years of age.

NCMC708557e1

April Williams was born August 17, 1983 in Washington D.C., Baby April was 3 months old when she was kidnapped on December 3, 1983 by an unknown female. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since, nor has her abductor been identified and brought to justice.

NCMC708557a1

An artist drew a composite sketch based on the description of the unknown abductor. Keep in mind that the description is based on what the kidnapper looked like in 1983, and she may look entirely different now that she’s 30 years older so it’s important to try an focus on certain facial features including the eyes, shape of face, nose, etc. A very good identifying factor is the mole (or birthmark) witnesses said they seen on the woman’s right cheek. She is described as a black female who had reddish hair (at the time), about 5’3” – 5’4”, weight unknown (although she is described as thinner rather than heavy.)

According to police she may have gone by the name “Latoya”, although it may have been a street name or an alias.

Strangers, esp females, who abduct babies are typically rare. When it does happen many speculate that the unknown woman could have fertility issues and may have kidnapped the child to raise as her own. This gives more hope to one day finding April Williams alive. April would be turning 30 this year and could be a mother herself, not realizing the ‘mother’ who raised her was actually a criminal who kidnapped her.

Baby April was last seen wearing a blue sleeper with a red number one along with a pink and white snowsuit. She has a birthmark on her right wrist.

Case Type: Non Family Abduction

A Facebook page called Are you the kidnapped April Williams? was created and has only gained 98 ‘likes’ despite millions of Facebook users on the internet daily. The abductor could have kidnapped April to raise her as her own child. She would be 30 years old this year and may be a mother herself, not realizing she is a kidnapped victim.
