NORTHRIDGE (CBSLA.com) —  The family of a Northridge man feared for his safety Wednesday night.

Dustin-Kent-Adrianna

In January, Dustin Kent went looking for his 5-year-old daughter Adrianna who lives in Peru with her mother. Soon after locating the little girl, Kent was arrested by Peruvian police on kidnapping charges.

The case has created a media frenzy in Peru, where the 32-year-old father could spend the next several decades behind bars.

On Wednesday night, CBS2’s Peter Daut spoke to Kent’s family.

“It’s ludicrous! it’s beyond unimaginable,” Dustin’s father, Bill, said. “It should not be kidnapping, it’s a custody thing. What parent wouldn’t want to find their own child?”

Kent’s father is desperate for his son’s release. His son and Adrianna’s mother, Rose, married in 2007, but they divorced several years later.

After a judge granted the parents shared custody of Adrianna, Rose fled to her native home in Peru with their daughter. This prompted a judge to grant Kent complete custody.

A full year has passed. Kent still does not have Adrianna in his custody. His father says the little girl was kept in hiding.

“He was miserable without her, he had a very miserable year. He was tired of the waiting games, he was tired of the political process of waiting,” Bill explained.

Kent is a registered nurse at a hospital in Hollywood. His family has hired an attorney, but they feel frustrated by the lack of support from U.S. authorities in getting him out of prison. They’re also worried for his safety.

“I’m afraid if he stays in Peru very long, he may not have a long life,” Bill said.

Kent has created a GoFundMe page to help with the legal costs.

The family is also trying to raise awareness on social media with the hashtag #freedustinkentperu.

Adrianna Kent, five, was allegedly snatched from her mother, the selfie-loving fitness fanatic Rose Chacón, 29, in the Peruvian capital Lima, last month.

Ms Chacón and Adrianna’s father, Dustin Kent, share custody of the girl but last year Ms Chacón took Adrianna to Peru from America after claiming her husband had ‘inappropriately touched’ their daughter.

Adrianna Kent, five, was allegedly snatched from her mother, the selfie-loving fitness fanatic Rose Chacón (pictured) in the Peruvian capital Lima, last month.

Ms Chacón’s claims were ruled as unfounded last year, and the judge gave Mr Kent full custody.

Now the mother-of-one, who studied International Business Management at University of San Martin de Porres in Lima, is reportedly facing legal proceedings, accused of taking her daughter out of America without permission.

Kevin Critchley, 35, who served with the British Army for more than 13 years before working as a surveillance specialist, was arrested in Peru for the alleged ‘kidnap’ of the five-year-old.

The Peruvian authorities claim he was paid £150,000 by Adrianna’s father Dustin Kent – who has also been arrested.

Kevin Critchley, 35 from Milton Keynes, served with the British Army for more than 13 years before working as a surveillance specialist.

According to local media reports, Mr Critchley had been part of a plot tasked with finding and kidnapping children at the behest of estranged parents.

Adriana, her father and Mr Critchley were found some 12 hours after the ‘kidnap’ at the San Bartolo beach resort in Lima.

Mr Critchley, who lives in Milton Keynes, is a self-employed ‘close protection operative and freelance surveillance operator’ according to his LinkedIn profile.

Having served as a British Army Commando in hostile environments, he moved into the private security industry in 2010.

He claims to have worked on operations to ‘counter large scale fraud, theft or marital disputes’ and as a close protection officer, he says he provided protection for both the England and Brazilian national football teams, as well as members of the Saudi Royal Family. 

A spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: ‘We are providing consular support to a British national arrested in Peru.’

Mr Kent’s lawyer told The Times that Mr Critchley was a friend who had travelled with him to Peru on a sightseeing trip.
