Jade Flores: Take from Santa Clara County

Copied from the Jade Flores Facebook page:  

“IN 2006, 2-YEAR-OLD JADE ARELL FLORES AND HER SISTER WERE REMOVED FROM THEIR PARENTS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES AND PLACED INTO STATE CUSTODY. THEY WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE PLACED WITH A LOVING FOSTER FAMILY.

ON JULY 6, 2008, JADE WAS NOT RETURNED TO A STATE OWNED CHILD SHELTER FACILITY BY HER FATHER, HEIBY PENA FLORES, FOLLOWING A SCHEDULED VISIT. THE POLICE WERE CONTACTED AND A REPORT FOR ‘CHILD STEALING’ WAS TAKEN.

JADE, A UNITED STATES CITIZEN WAS TAKEN TO A SMALL TOWN IN MEXICO. THE ABDUCTOR HAS A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, PHYSICAL ABUSE AND HAS A FELONY WARRANT FOR HIS ARREST FOR JADE’S KIDNAPPING.

OUR PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR HAS MADE SURVEILLANCE WITH JADE A FEW TIMES SINCE WE DISCOVERED HER WHEREABOUTS. A FEW WEEKS AGO ANOTHER SURVEILLANCE UNIT, INCLUDING AN INVESTIGATOR AND A REPRESENTATIVE OF A LOCAL MEXICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. THEY FOUND JADE STILL THERE. JADE, IS NOW KNOWN AS “THE ONE SECUESTRADO” (THE KIDNAPPED ONE) IN THE TOWN WHERE HEIBY IS KEEPING HER.

THE RELEVANT AMERICAN CONSULAR AGENT HAS STATED HE IS WILLING TO HELP, BUT THE PROCESS NEEDS TO BE INITIATED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE.

ALSO CONTACTED WERE THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE AND THE US EMBASSY IN MEXICO CITY. BOTH ADVISED THAT EITHER THE SANTA CLARA DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE OR SANTA CLARA CHILD SERVICES NEED TO INITIATE THE PROCESS.

A DEMAND WAS MADE BY THE SANTA CLARA COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND CHILDREN’S SERVICES TO STOP THE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION ON THE CASE. THE REASON – PRIVACY CONCERNS. (WE HAVE A COPY OF THAT SIGNED LETTER.)

A POLICE CHIEF IN MEXICO HAS OFFERED TO RECOVER THE CHILD AND TAKE HER TO THE NEAREST EMBASSY SO SHE CAN RETURN HOME.

AT THIS TIME, NO EFFORTS HAVE BEEN OR ARE BEING MADE TO RECOVER JADE AND TAKE HER HOME TO HER SISTER (NOW ADOPTED) AND FOSTER-ADOPT FAMILY. IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, WITH VERY CAPABLE AGENCIES AT THEIR DISPOSAL, HAVE NOT ONLY FAILED TO DO ANYTHING, BUT ALSO HINDERED THE INVESTIGATION BY DEMANDING RESCUE EFFORTS TO STOP.

MAYBE AN INTERNAL AFFAIRS INVESTIGATION WOULD BE APPROPRIATE UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES? WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE OR DSS AGENCIES TO TAKE THE APPROPRIATE STEPS TO RECOVER THIS ABDUCTED AMERICAN CITIZEN?”
