UPDATE: AMBER ALERT: Missing Georgetown 2-year-old found in California
GEORGETOWN, Del. — A 2-year-old Georgetown boy has been found safe after an Amber Alert was issued for his abduction last month.
Georgetown Detectives, with assistance from local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, say they’ve found 2-year-old Cristobal Lopez. Cristobal was last seen on July 25, on South Front Street in Georgetown, while in the custody of a family member.
Cristobal Lopez was placed in the care of a family member after his mother, Angelina Lopez was charged with child abuse back in June. Angelina was limited to supervised visitation with Cristobal and had arranged to stay at her cousin’s house overnight on the day of his abduction.
Georgetown Detectives, in collaboration with multiple law enforcement agencies, discovered that Cristobal had been moved from Delaware to California. On August 7, at the request of Georgetown Police, Pasadena Police Department Detectives executed a search warrant at a residence on the 600 block of Los Robles Avenue in Pasadena, California. Pasadena Detectives located Cristobal safely inside the residence.
The Georgetown Police Department would like to thank the following law enforcement agencies for their support in locating and recovering Cristobal Lopez: Delaware State Police, Delaware Capitol Police, Delaware Department of Justice, Homeland Security Investigations (Delaware Office), National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Police, West Palm Beach Police, F.B.I. Baltimore-Wilmington Field Office, and the Pasadena Police Department.
Angelina Lopez has not been located, and this investigation remains active. Angelina Lopez currently has an active warrant for felony breach of release by the Georgetown Police Department.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Angelina Lopez should call 911 immediately. Information and inquiries should be referred to the Georgetown Public Information Officer, Detective Joseph Melvin at 302-856-6613.
