Girl Sabrina Allen missing for 12 years located in Mexico

A Texas girl who has been missing for 12 years is back in the United States today after authorities located her in Mexico, authorities said.

Sabrina was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Dara Llorens, in 2002. The FBI, U.S. Marshals and the Mexican Federal Authority conducted the operation Tuesday in a town outside Mexico City, according to a statement Wednesday from Klein Investigations and Consulting.

The father said he had not seen his daughter yet; she was talking with a clinical psychologist to help with the transition.

“We don’t have a timetable,” he said. “It really just depends on how it goes. We’re very eager to have her home as soon as possible, and we are going to slowly introduce family members and do what we can.”

Greg Allen said his Sabrina had not been “living a normal life.” She had not been attending school and rarely left the apartment she lived in with her mother.
“Dara has done a lot of bad things, but let me tell you Sabrina is alive,” he said. “(Sabrina) has got a lot of work to do, but she is physically OK, and that’s a good starting point.”

A Mexican Federal Police Officer suffered a minor injury during the rescue.

“Our entire family would like to thank the investigators that made this happen,” Allen said in an earlier statement. “Our prayers go out to the Mexican Federal Police Officer who was injured. We also would like to thank the Mexican Government for their cooperation in this case.

“Last, a heartfelt thank you to the U.S. FBI, U.S. Marshals, and all of the investigators that have worked this case for the last 12 years. They never gave up. We look forward to being reunited very soon.”

Law enforcement officials placed Llorens in Travis County, TX, Jail on $300,000 bond. Austin, TX, police are expected to hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Philip Klein of Klein Investigations told USA Today that Sabrina had returned to the U.S. and was being looked at by medical staff. He said Llorens was wanted on warrant for interference with child custody and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Sabrina’s kidnapping, which was featured on America’s Most Wanted, took place during an unsupervised visit following the couple’s divorce.
