Florida mother reunited with daughter abducted in 2007 at age 6

According to a press release, the Clermont Police Detective Division said it received a September 2 call from Angelica Vences-Salgado telling authorities she had been contacted by her daughter, Jacqueline Hernandez, on social media. Hernandez told her mother she was in Mexico and asked her to meet her at The Point of Entry in Laredo, Texas, on September 10, police said.

The CPD coordinated with state and federal agencies prior to the reunification “to intercept the victim and to determine if the woman’s identity was the victim in this case.”

On September 10, authorities from Homeland Security Investigations, US Customs and Border Protection and the Laredo Police Department intercepted the couple at the Laredo border.

“Based on the documentation provided to these agencies by Angelica and the Clermont Police Department, they determined that the woman was in fact Jacqueline Hernandez, who was abducted from her mother in 2007,” the statement said.

Hernandez, now 19, was then reunited with his mother.

The CPD said this case was a “good example” of what can happen when multiple agencies work together. Together, the teams were “able to create a power multiplier and help reunite the victim with her mother after 14 years,” CPD chief Charles Broadway said in a statement.
