TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. and Mexican law enforcement agencies have recovered two young children taken by non-custodial parents.
The Marshals Service says the U.S. State Department is caring for 1-year-old Estella Lovemore and 2-year-old Carolina Oddo in Mexico pending their return to the United States.
According to the Marshals Service, the girls were located Thursday in Hermosillo, Sonora, where authorities took into custody 22-year-old Danielle Nicole Lovemore, the mother of the 1-year-old.
Lovemore has been returned to the United Sates to face a charge of custodial interference.
Her daughter was in Arizona Child Protective Services custody in January.
The other girl's biological father is 26-year-old Luis Fernando Palacio.
He's wanted on a custodial interference warrant accusing him of taking the girl in November. He was supposed to return the girl to her mother.
