A Texas girl who was abducted and missing for 12 years was rescued Tuesday morning near Mexico City.
Sabrina Allen was four-years-old when she was abducted in 2002. Now 14-years-old, Allen was rescued in an operation conducted by the Mexican Federal Authority, FBI and U.S. Marshals. Sabrina and her alleged abductor, Dara Llorens, were flown back into Houston, TX on Tuesday night. Sabrina now is undergoing medical evaluation at an undisclosed facility in Austin, TX.
LLorens is Sabrina’s non-custodial mother, and was sought under a federal warrant for allegedly kidnapping her daughter after divorcing from her husband, Greg Allen. Allen made the following statement in a press release after hearing of Sabrina’s rescue.
“I am overjoyed that Sabrina has been found alive and is safe. Our entire family would like to thank the investigators that made this happen. Our prayers go out to the Mexican Federal Police Officer who was injured. We also would like to thank the Mexican Government for their cooperation in this case. Last, a heartfelt thank you to the USFBI, US Marshals, and all of the investigators that have worked this case for the last 12 years. They never gave up. We look forward to being reunited very soon.”
According to reports, Llorens and her daughter were able to avoid capture by changing their hair color. Llorens was booked into Travis County Jail in Austin, TX and is set on a $300,000 bond.
Authorities are scheduling a news conference later this afternoon to discuss the rescue and arrest.
