Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Diego and Tammy may be in the company of their non-custodial father Francisco Flores. They may still be in the local area or they may travel to Oregon or to Mexico. On October 21, 2007, Tammy and Diego Flores were dropped off at their father Francisco Flores' home in Victorville, California by their mother for a regularly scheduled one week visit. Francisco and the children's mother were in the middle of a divorce and shared joint custody. On October 23, 2007, the mother went to Francisco's house, only to find no one home. Tammy and Diego's mother immediately took action and was granted full custody of both children a week later on October 31, 2007. Local investigators learned that Francisco may have been planning the abduction for weeks. Francisco had refinanced his home and withdrew the $100,000 earnings. The house has since been foreclosed. Francisco also walked away from his job at a cable company without any notification that he was quitting. He had been a model employee at the company for ten years.
It was originally believed that Francisco fled to Mexico, as he shared dual citizenship in Mexico and the United States and he is known have relatives in Mexico City. There has been no evidence thus far that confirms that they left the United States and no locations are being eliminated as Tammy and Diego's exact location is still unknown. A felony warrant for Kidnapping was issued for the abductor on January 18, 2008. Francisco was abusive to the children's mother and she fears he could harm Tammy and Diego.
