RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas — A Texas father will soon be reunited with his daughter 12 years after the girl’s mother allegedly kidnapped her and took her to Mexico from where U.S. federal agents working alongside their Mexican counterparts were able to rescue her.
Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas show that 44 year-old Dora Marie Llorens was formally charged on Wednesday of one count of aggravated kidnapping for the April 2002 abduction of her daughter Sabrina Allen who was only 4-years-old at the time. The child was allegedly taken by Llorens during a weekend visit.
In 2002, the 353rd State District Court issued an arrest warrant for Dora who had fled with the child and it was not until September 30, 2012 when authorities were able to rescue Sabrina near Mexico City and return her to the U.S. on Tuesday.
On Wednesday Allen’s father Greg spoke with various media outlets during a press conference with the FBI. During the conference the father said Sabrina had not lived a regular life, had not gone to school and once she had recuperated he would ask her for a hug, various news outlets at the conference said.
The child was rescued after the father had hired a private investigator and had set up a website for tips in an effort to keep the search on despite the passage of time.
