STEPHANIE AND MARIFER GARCIA – CASE RESTRICTED

STEPHANIE AND MARIFER GARCIA

~

Stephanie and Marifer’s case has been restricted and since removed from the NCMEC Database.  Thank you to all of those who followed their case.  We will follow up with any updates received.

**** What a restricted case means. ****
A restricted case can mean any one of several things.  It can mean 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.  A restricted case can also mean that the case is being updated.  When this is the case, a new poster will be issued for the children and the case will be reclassified.  This generally happens within a day or two.  LTWH’s policy is to wait 7 days before reclassifying a case, therefore we avoid changing the status of a case if an update is all that is happening.  Lastly, a restricted case may mean that the publicity of the case has been ceased.  When this happens, the public is given very little information.
**** Please note that when a case is classified as restricted, we move the case to our recovered archives.****
