MARIEL AND LUIS ENCARNACION – RESTRICTED – UPDATED 04.10.2013

Mariel and Luis Encarnacion

UPDATE 02.02.2013

Although Mariel and Luis` case has been classified as restricted, I can find no information regarding the children or the father, or the death of their mother.  I would normally close the case out with a restriction status, but I can`t just let these two beautiful children drift to the side without some sort of arrest or resolution regarding their whereabouts and their father`s role in their mother`s murder.  If anyone has any information regarding the children, or the murder investigation, please do comment.  Thank you.

**** After many inquiries as to what ‘restricted’ means, here is the information I have. ****

The children have been recovered, or the case has been solved, however it is not press ready at the time.  Classifying it as restricted gives the authorities and professionals time to evaluate the children, without any influence, to determine exactly how they were living and their current needs – do they need any medical treatment, counseling, drug rehab, etc. Also, during the evaluation time the professionals and authorities should be able to determine if any additional charges should be filed against the abductor(s) or anyone else.  A final determination of custody will be made (vast majority enforces orders made after the abduction), and the children will then be returned to their rightful home.

**** Please note that when a case is classified as restricted, we move the case to our recovered archives.****

Mariel and Luis may be in the company of their father, Maico Lopez.  A felony warrant for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution was issued for Maico on September 27, 2011.

UPDATE

The day after Luis and Mariel were last seen, their mother, Mariela Mendizabal, was found murdered at their home, where she had been stabbed in the neck.  Later that day the children were seen with their father on public transportation in Los Angeles.  Lopez and Mendizabal had ever married but were together for several years. The two had separated one month prior to the children’s abduction and Mendizabal’s murder.  A felony warrant for homicide has been issued for Lopez.  The FBI has joined the case and are hoping to locate Lopez and the children in Mexico.

Their case has since been made restricted and has been removed from the NCMEC database.  I will continue to post on this case and search for details regarding the children’s whereabouts and their safety.  If anyone has any information to add, please do so.
