Mother finally reunited with daughter who was abducted in 2007
The pair saw each other for the first time in fourteen years over the weekend.
A cold case in the US involving a young girl who was abducted has finally been closed as she has been reunited with her mother, police say.
Jacqueline Hernandez was abducted from her home city of Clermont, Florida in 2007 at just six years old.
Fourteen years later, she has finally been reunited with her mother.
The girl’s mother, Angelica Vences-Salgado, told police she received a message on social media from a young woman in Mexico claiming to be her abducted daughter, now 19.
Jacqueline told her she was in Mexico and wanted to meet her at the Texas border, according to police.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange, Homeland Security Investigations, and ICE worked together to help the mother and daughter reunite.
Sure enough, the pair got to see each other for the first time in 14 years on Friday.
Documentation proved the now 19-year-old was indeed Angelica's daughter, according to investigators.
HS Orlando Assistant Special Agent in Charge Davide Pezzutti said in a press statement: "A kidnapped daughter was reunited with her mother as a result of enforcement working together."
Police said they have an active warrant for the teen's father, who they believe to be in Mexico.
