    I am so mad and upset that they haven't issued an amber alert for Sofia. Her mother has been murdered, they have a car description and tag # but yet they said it doesn't meet the criteria for an amber alert.

    I am going back on forth on twitter with this.

    Someone sent me this on the Kansas Amber Alert criteria. I believe Sofia is in danger, that's reason enough imo.

    This is why so many children are murdered because they procrasinate on issuing an Amber Alert. Kansas said it has to fit ALL the criteria stated in the Amber Alert guideline. Being just in danger doesn't count. All states have the same guideline but some issue them without all the criteria.

    I just hope they are not too late for this little baby.

    Important information regarding the missing six day old;

    It is important to understand what the criteria is for an Amber alert to be issued.

    One of the criteria includes knowing suspect information to be able to put out to the public

    At this time the Wichita Police department does not have any suspect information to put out, therefore no Amber alert can be issued at this time.

    The Wichita Police Department is working closely with the KBI and if any facts change, and a suspect is determined, an Amber alert will be issued immediately.

    Again, what's important to focus on at this time is that there is a six day old missing and we need to share this information in order to help find her.

    Thank you,
    Sgt. Woodrow

    I asked LE this question- I am seeing this on twitter: Last seen in a Cadillac with Kansas tag 716-GET Is this car no longer being looked for?

    LE's response:

    Wichita Police Department The baby was not last seen in that vehicle. We are looking to talk to someone who drives that car. Thanks!

    Wichita Police Department The car or the driver is not suspect. We are just trying to find anyone who knows the mother who would possibly have info on the missing girl.

    Thank you Kitty for all the updates/information on Sofia.

    IMO, I believe an Amber Alert should have been issued immediately.

    The perp could be someone who followed this mother/victim home from a shopping trip/doctor visit, there have been a couple of cases where this has happened. Thinking out loud...

    LE said they cannot issue an Amber Alert as they have no suspect info.

    Yes, I know.

    IMO, perhaps they need to change the criteria, most people pay attention to an Amber Alert, more people would have been made aware of the situation sooner had one been issued.

    Exactly...people on fb are asking where her mother is as some don't know that she was shot and killed. An Amber Alert would tell all that.

    In Sofia's pics she looks so well cared for and loved. I hope she is safe and warm somewhere and that she is reunited with her father soon.

    FBI now involved in case of missing Wichita newborn

    Updated: Fri 10:26 AM, Nov 18, 2016


    WICHITA, Kan. FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: Wichita Police say the FBI is now involved in the search for missing newborn, Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca.


    [IMG]http://media.graytvinc.com/images/690*388/Missing+Sofia.png[/IMG]


    Police said Friday morning that the FBI sent a special child abduction investigation team to assist. Anyone with ANY information about the newborn girl is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI or 911.

    Wichita police say they spent the night interviewing friends and family members about the case, but there have been no leads.

    Officers were called to the home in the 200 block of N. Brunswick at around 3:30 Thursday afternoon. The infant's mother was found dead with gunshot wounds.

    Police say the victim's boyfriend found her when he got home from work. The last contact with her was at 1:00 in the afternoon, so police believe she was shot some time between 1:00 and 3:30 in the afternoon.


    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    So whoever has Sofia had a 2-2 1/2 hours to get her out of the area.

    FBI called in to help in finding missing newborn

    November 18, 2016 10:38 AM - Video included Lt. Todd Ojile

    UPDATED 10:20 A.M.: Wichita police gave no new details on the killing of a 27-year-old Wichita mother on Friday morning but said that the FBI has been called in to assist in finding her missing newborn.

    The baby, Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca, was abducted, Lt. Todd Ojile said, and is considered endangered. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call 911 or 1-800-CALL FBI.

    An Amber Alert has not been issued, Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said, because police have no suspects in her abduction at this time. Suspect information is required for an Amber Alert to become active.

    Ojile said the live-in boyfriend of Sofia's mother found her shot to death after he arrived at their apartment at 215 N. Brunswick shortly before 3:30 p.m. The mother, who has not been identified yet by police, was pronounced dead at the scene about 10 minutes later.

    Police say the last time the mother was known to be alive was shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday.

    Search for missing Wichita infant expands to KCK

    Nov 18, 2016


    KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

    While they're still not the lead agency, the FBI's role will be large in the search for 7-day-old baby Sofia Gonzalez.

    Police say that her mother, Laura Abarca-Nougeda, was shot and killed in her home in Wichita before Sofia disappeared.

    The shooting and abduction launched a huge search for the child. Investigators came to the metro after a car the child was believed to be in was found to be registered in Kansas City, Kansas.

    They talked to Leron Berry in Olathe, a former boyfriend of Laura's. After his interview, he was cleared as a suspect.

    Berry's mother, Veronica Holmes, said on Friday that her son and Laura broke up years ago, which made the investigators’ trip to her KCK home a surprise. She did say she’s maintained a friendly relationship with Laura, however.

    "Met up with the FBI, and the police officers,” said Holmes, “and my whole thing is, my son didn't do this. And they asked me all the little questions about has he been there, has he been up there... No.”

    Former FBI Agent in Charge, Michael Tabman, talked about how the FBI will aid in the search for Sofia.

    "The FBI has a special response unit called ‘CARD’ -- Child Abduction/Rapid Deployment,” said Tabman. “It's a group of agents dedicated to this type of work. So, they bring in some expertise. Understanding how to set up a command post, how to track logical leads, profiling the sex offenders who'll be the first target of interviews, understanding who might be the most likely. They're also going to help in how to frame interviews of friends, neighbors, and relatives."

    Police: Missing Sophia may be in hands of someone claiming infant as their own

    November 18, 2016 8:59 PM

    More than a day after a Wichita mother was killed in her home and her newborn child abducted, police still have no leads on who carried out the crimes.

    But late Friday afternoon, authorities for the first time suggested the infant may have been taken by someone who is now passing the baby off as a new addition to their family.

    "We’re looking for anyone that all of a sudden has a child" or says a family member has come to visit and has a newborn, said police Lt. Todd Ojile, head of the homicide unit.

    "They’re showing them off, they’re buying different items," he said.

    But in terms of finding Sophia Gonzales, "We have no idea" where she is, Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said Friday. The baby was born Nov. 11.

    While authorities have received some tips in the case, Ramsay said they have not yielded suspects or leads.

    Curious if the mother/baby went anywhere within the days prior, did she go to the store or had doctor visit? Maybe someone saw her buying baby items, followed her home...Praying whoever has Sofia is taking care of her.

    Police, family plead for help in finding missing infant as search heads into weekend

    WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - FRIDAY NIGHT UPDATE

    Police and family members are still looking for a newborn who appears to have been taken from her home after a shooting on Thursday afternoon.

    Police gave an update on the search this afternoon but they say they still don't have any information on Baby Sophia's whereabouts.

    "We're pleading with community members, and asking everybody to help us find baby Sophia." said Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsey.

    Investigators are telling media outlets to start spreading the word about Baby Sophia's disappearance. They say they're looking for anyone who unexpectedly came up with a baby.

    "We're looking for anyone who all the sudden has a child. Or says a family member came to visit them and a new child is there all the sudden. said Lt. Todd Ojile of the Wichita Police Department. "They're showing them off. They're buying new items. They could say it's their niece or nephew, or they didn't know they were pregnant." said Lt. Todd Ojile of the Wichita Police Department.

    When I was on the WPD FB's page the first night of Sofia's disappearance I posted something just like that, here is my post.


    I have seen several cases where a woman has lied to her husband/bf and told them she is pregnant. She then goes out to kidnap a newborn passing it off as her own, saying she just gave birth. I wonder if this could be one of those cases? I just pray this baby is safe somewhere.

    Ramsay: suspect abducted Sophia and fled to Dallas. 2 adults in custody. Sophia is "alive and healthy" after being found in a house there


    Investigators en route to Dallas.


    R. Sophia is in protective custody and doing well, Ramsay said. "This is the best possible outcome to a very sad case."


    "Still very much an active investigation," Ramsay said.


    "It's unfathomable," Ramsay said of the abduction. Sophia will be reunited with family "as soon as possible."


    Police received information at about 4:30 a.m. that Sophia was in Dallas. Search warrant executed. Sophia found, 2 arrested.
