 Stephanie was abducted by her non-custodial father, Farid Farhoumand.

Stephanie’s parents separated in 2007 and were fighting for custody of her.  Her mother was petitioning for full custody and Farid had visitation rights.  On the day of Stephanie’s abduction, her mother dropped her off for a scheduled visitation with Farid.  Stephanie’s parents got into an altercation.  Her father physically pushed her mother out of his apartment, and fled in his car with Stephanie.  Her mother then contacted police, stating she was afraid that Farid would take Stephanie out of the country.  Because Stephanie’s mother did not have exclusive custody of her at the time, months passed before authorities could issue any charges or warrants against Farid.

Authorities found Farid’s car in Otay Mesa, California, at the Mexican border crossing.  They determined that Farid had in fact taken Stephanie into Mexico and from there they flew to Frankfurt, Germany.  Once there, Farid spoke to airline employees saying he was going to fly to Iran via Turkey, but he didn’t have enough money to get there.  The staff members offered to contact the United States Embassy on his behalf, but Farid insisted they should not call.  This made the airline employees suspicious.  Thinking he might have abducted Stephanie, they called the American embassy without Farid’s knowledge.  Stephanie was not listed as an abducted child at the time, however, and so the embassy was unaware of the situation.  The airline workers convinced Farid not to try to take Stephanie to Iran, and they flew back to Mexico instead.  Stephanie’s mother was eventually granted sole custody of her and in July 2007, police issued a felony warrant for Farid. By then, however, Stephanie and Farid had vanished again.  It is unknown whether or not they are still in Mexico.

Farid was raised as a Christian and attended church regularly.  He has a history of physically abusive behaviour and Stephanie is considered to be at risk as a result.
