MP of the week: Rylan Untalasco

This week’s featured missing person is Rylan Alakai Untalasco, who disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada on July 2, 2009. He was nine years old at the time and was abducted by his non-custodial mother, Rina Siojo Lee, and Carlos Fabian Lee, who was presumably Rina’s husband or boyfriend. Felony kidnapping warrants have been issued for both of the abductors. They are believed to be living in Bulacan, a province on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, not far from the national capital of Manila.

I didn’t find too much about Rylan on the internet, beyond this YouTube video that has some more pictures of him. I did find a Facebook page for someone of that name, but no telling whether it’s him or not. He will be fourteen years old in two weeks and, since he was of relatively mature age at the time of his abduction, may know that he’s listed as a missing child and that his father in America, Allen Untalasco, is looking for him. In fact, there’s a decent chance that Rylan will come across this blog entry.

Rylan, family abduction is a crime and child abuse. I hope someday you come home.
