Very concerning!

11-year-old previously seen kissing alleged 42-year-old kidnapper: ECSO​

According to Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons, Banesa and Ortiz were working together at a farm in Escambia County two weeks ago when Banesa’s father caught the two kissing. Banesa’s father allegedly fired Ortiz immediately and took him to Atlanta. This morning, Banesa’s father found that a screen in a window had been cut and a note was left. Banesa was nowhere to be found.

The sheriff said deputies believe the two are traveling and are not in the area. Ortiz’s criminal history is unknown because he is an undocumented worker. Sheriff Simmons said they will release more information as it comes in.

She is 11 and he is 42. Kudos to dad, he took him away BUT didn't do much good. Don't like the headline as if SHE was seen kissing him. She is ELEVEN. Undocumented but I wonder does he have a driver's license. I mean he made it back from Atlanta...

Evil creep.

Praying she is found safe.

If dad could fire him, dad clearly employed an illegal. Just an observation.

What matters is that she is found safe.

Manriquez-Ortis — a 42-year-old undocumented worker with an unknown date of birth — was located Thursday afternoon in Laredo, Texas where he was continuing to be detained as of 4 p.m.

Although the sheriff did not go into detail, Simmons confirmed that Banesa was also located Thursday, having been found safely inside a car in Foley, Alabama.

So he was found in Laredo, TX and she was found in Foley, AL :thinking:

Glad she is safe. So she is found in Alabama but he in Texas. Headed for the border? Certainly was able to travel from AL to Florida, likely back to AL and then to TX.

Thank goodness she is alive and well.

In another update, Sheriff Simmons tells Channel 3 that Fernandez-Santis was located by herself in a stolen car in Foley. Meanwhile, Manriquez-Ortiz was detained in Texas.

Investigators no longer believe a kidnapping incident happened. However, Sheriff Simmons says Manriquez-Ortiz may face charges for events that led up to the girl's disappearance.

Hmm. Guessing then that she says she left on her own even if to be with him and whether true or protecting him who knows...

Watch what your kids are doing damit! This could have ended much worse. Undocumented worker. Imagine that.
Seeing a 42 year old kissing an 11 year old if more than a friendly kiss (even that!) should have had cops called by dad imo. Dad got rid of him or dumped him out of town which is good BUT apparently not rid of the issue/problem... If this young girl is either convinced this is okay by this creep or was uncomfortable with the situation, in either case THIS is serious. Where is mom in this scenario?

Plus, dad gave him a ride away from there! I don't know of any dads that he would have survived, let alone get a ride from.

Yes that was my other thought, how did he RIDE with him instead of pummeling the he77 or worse out of him!!

SMH. Charged in their own county so would guess this was going on right under dad's nose. Again where is her mother or did she just live with dad.

Per this article, dad DID beat him up.

I wonder if not kidnapped what happened. Did she steal a car, seems a bit young for that. How did she get to AL?

I like this sheriff's dept. lack of fear of going out there calling this relationship wildly inappropriate AND calls his actions pathetic.
