Edwin was last seen at his residence in the 100 block of Crystal Lane in Siler City, NC.  He was asleep at the home he shared with his mother, Florentina Gonzalez Coria, his grandfather and a teenage relative.  Florentina had separated from Edwin’s father, Jorges Aguilera, sometime before, and Aguilera was out on bail for breaking a domestic violence protective order.  Florentina had legal custody of their son.

Aguilera broke into the residence between 1:30 and 2:00 a.m.  He was accompanied by three other men.  They cut the phone lines, bound Edwin’s relatives with duct tape and threatened them at gunpoint.  The abductors then left with Edwin.  He has never been heard from again.  Initial reports were that the suspects fled in a burgundy SUV, but when this vehicle was located, authorities decided it had no connection to the abduction.

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with Edwin’s kidnapping.  Elvis Hernandez was arrested on unrelated immigration charges, but is believed to have been somehow involved in the abduction.  Francisco Rodriguez was arrested after a search of his residence revealed a stolen hand gun, which authorities believe was used in the kidnapping.  Marcelino Tomes and Lorenzo Coria were arrested and charged with burglary and first degree kidnapping, investigators believe they directly participated in Edwin’s kidnapping.  Lorenzo is Florentina’s brother.

Jorge Aguilera was located and arrested in the summer of 2010, but Edwin wasn’t with him at the time.  Authorities believed he may have taken Edwin to Mexico and left him with relatives.

In November of 2012, Edwin was located in Texas and brought home to his mother.  Shortly after, the little boy’s father, Aguilera, was sentenced to 60 – 80 months in prison after being convicted of 3 counts of first degree kidnapping, first degree burglary and second degree kidnapping.
