Amber Alert in Utah~ Alicia, Pablo Hernandez, and Xiomara Hernandez Torres




Three young children are missing from West Valley, Utah. Their disappearance triggered an Amber Alert. Their non-custodial father and his girlfriend, Xiomara's mother, took the kids for a visit and never returned them. Their aunt has had custody of the children since 2006. Their father lost custody of them because he was physically abusing them. Their aunt made the mistake of letting their father take them unsupervised. For a while it worked up until that day.
Alicia Hernandez is 6 years old, 3'6, 40 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes. She is the only one of the kids that speaks both spanish and english. She was wearing a red and pink shirt, white shorts, and pink shoes. Pablo Hernandez is 4 years old, 3'0, 30 pounds, and he, also, has black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a blue shirt with white stripes, blue jeans, and white shoes. Xiomara Hernandez-Torres is 3 years old, 3'0, weight is unknown, and she has black hair and brown eyes. She was wearing rose colored shirt, black pants, and pink shoes. All of the children are hispanic.
The Amber has been active for 2 weeks and the children are believe to be in danger. They may be headed to Mexico.
The suspect is Israel Hernandez. He's hispanic, 35 years old, 5'5, 150 pounds.
Please be on the look out for these children and their father.

West Valley case remains state's only active Amber Alert 5 years later


RIVERTON —A young woman has made it her mission to find three children who were illegally taken by their father in 2008. The case prompted an Amber Alert, which is the only one in Utah that remains active.

"They're not safe right now, and nobody really knows where they are," Hannah Endemanno said Tuesday.

Endemanno was 10 years old in 2005, when her parents fostered Alicia and Pablo Hernandez.

"They were just like part of the family," she said. "They were just another brother and sister, you know?"

Endemanno, who has seven brothers, welcomed a new sister. She and Alicia shared a room together in the Riverton home where Endemanno and her family still live.

"(I had) lots of late night talks with a 3-year-old, the best kind," Endemanno said, laughing.

She said the kids adjusted easily, despite their troubled background.


"We knew that they'd been taken from their dad and his girlfriend and that had been a very physically abusive relationship," Endemanno said.

Her parents were planning to adopt Alicia and Pablo, but at the end of the year they were placed with a relative.

"They found their aunt, and so that was great for them; but it was definitely tough," Endemanno said.

She received occasional phone calls from the children and didn't think they could be in any danger.

Then on Aug. 26, 2008 the children's father took Alicia, Pablo and their 3-year-old stepsister, Xiomara, during a supervised visit at their aunt's home in West Valley City.

"It's the last thing you would ever expect," Endemanno said.

Police issued an Amber Alert for Israel Hernandez and his girlfriend, Martha Torres, who is Xiomara's mother.


At the time, West Valley City Police believed they could be headed for California or Mexico.

They've never been found, and the Amber Alert remains active.

"We're still very concerned about the welfare of these children, and we're hoping the public still keeps an eye out and can bring these kids home safely," said Paul Murphy, Utah's Amber Alert coordinator.

Murphy said the Amber Alert program has close ties with the Mexican government.

"If there was a citing in Mexico, there's a good chance those kids come come home," Murphy said.


That's Endemanno's hope. She now attends college in Idaho and has been making phone calls to authorities in Utah. She also plans to go to Mexico someday to look for the kids.


Endemanno said Alicia would be 11 now, and Pablo would be 9 or 10.


"It's not really something you can forget," Endemanno said. "They're still part of the people you've loved. We pray for them every day."


West Valley City Deputy Police Chief Mike Powell said the Hernandez kidnapping is still an active case. He said investigators are hopeful new information they've recently received will shed some new light on the case and help bring the children back.


There have been 34 Amber Alerts issued in Utah since the program began in 2002. Elizabeth Smart's kidnapping triggered the first one, and Murphy said that case shows how effective the alert can still be effective after some time has passed: Smart was found after nine months.
