Jacqueline Hernandez was abducted by her father, Pablo Hernandez, on December 22, 2007, from her home in Clermont, Florida. At the time, an arrest warrant was issued because authorities believed he and his daughter may have fled to Mexico. It is not yet clear where Hernandez is.
On Sept. 2, Angelica Wenceslas-Salcado reported to Clermont Police that she had been contacted online by a woman claiming to be her daughter. As a result, Florida and Texas police and homeland security investigators confirmed the identity of the young woman “intercepted” at an agreed meeting.
When the two women met in Laredo, Texas, investigators confirmed the 19-year-old was the long-missing daughter of Wenceslas-Salcado.
Michael McMaster of the Clermont Police Department told NBC News on Tuesday that he did not know why Jacqueline Hernandez was approaching her mother now. Their life details have not been released since the abduction and both women are currently refusing to come for an interview.
