    Amber Alert: Police look for kids abducted by parents after case worker assaulted

    Tucson police are looking for children abducted by their non-custodial birth parents.

    Police say the parents took 5-year-old Luis Ramirez and 7-month-old Kahmila Ramirez after they assaulted a caseworker during a supervised visit at a park near 29th and Kino.

    The parents left in a green Toyota Camry with license plate number BKH8427. Police say the father tied a caseworker up to a tree and, along with his wife, took the two children.

    The car has since been found in Nogales near the border, but the parents and children are still missing. Police say evidence found in the car suggests the father shaved his beard and or mustache, and everyone had changed clothes.

    A felony arrest warrant has been issued for Luis and Andrea for one count of kidnapping and two counts of domestic violence kidnapping.

    According to the TPD, two days prior to this incident, Luis and Andrea were arraigned on 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor (not involving their children).

    With the recent charges and display of violence, the Tucson Police Department is extremely concerned for the safety of these children. Detectives are asking anyone with any information on their possible whereabouts to please call 911 immediately.

    Family keeping faith kidnapped children will be returned

    Luis Jr. has been in the foster care of his uncle and aunt, David and Erika, since Nov. 2016. They took in Kahmila when she was born.


    They've cared for the children, along with the three children of their own, ever since Luis and Andrea Ramirez first faced criminal charges nearly two years ago.

    Two days before the kidnapping, 30-year-old Luis and 28-year-old Andrea were arraigned on 20 new counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Authorities said those charges did not involve their own children, but family said the charges were connected to the previous alleged criminal incidents.

    Erika thinks that the latest incident forced the birth parents to snap.

    "It was that. They added more charges," she said.


    David and Erika believe the suspects may have fled into Mexico, although they believe their resources are limited for hiding out in the country.

    Indictment details charges against Tucson parents sought in abduction of children

    A Tucson couple accused of abducting their two children during a supervised visit were charged last month by prosecutors with numerous counts related to child pornography, molestation and child abuse, according to a Pima County grand jury indictment.

    According to the indictment, the couple is charged with 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Additionally, the couple is charged with two counts of child abuse by giving alcohol to a minor and having a loaded firearm within reach of a child.

    Also, Luis Ramirez faces additional charges of indecent exposure, molestation of a girl and luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

    Police have said the couple's children are not the victims in that case. The charges are related to crimes committed from August 2013 to July 2016, according to the indictment.

    No other details were available in the indictment. The Tucson Police Department didn't immediately respond to a records request for the police report.

    Tucson's Latest Amber Alert Differs From Most Other Missing Kids Cases

    Tucson Police alerted the community last week that a Tucson-area couple who did not have custody of their children took the kids during a supervised visit, and the incident sparked a nationwide Amber Alert.

    It is the second Amber Alert to go unresolved in Arizona of the 97 alerts issued since 2002 by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

    Working with federal agencies like Border Patrol, Tucson Police continue to search for the missing children. Dugan said the department believes the family went to Mexico. Police found their vehicle days later in Nogales.

    It is the second case of almost 100 in Amber Alerts in Arizona in the last 16 years that remains unresolved.

    The other is 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley from Glendale, Arizona.

    Family remains hopeful kidnapped children will return
    Tuesday, September 4th 2018, 5:14 am MST
    Updated: Tuesday, September 4th 2018, 6:35 am MST

    Luis and Andrea Ramirez allegedly fled with the children after they threatened a DCS worker with a taser and tied her to a tree, according to Tucson police. Their car was found in Nogales.

    During the past four month, Luis and Kahmila's foster parents haven't lost hope that the kids will be found and returned.

    "Every month, it is, "This is the month. We're really hoping that this is the month,'" Erika Ramirez said.

    David and Erika Ramirez are not only the children's foster parents, but their aunt and uncle as well.
