Everman police need public’s help in search for missing 6-year-old

On March 20, Everman Police Department received word from Child Protective services regarding the welfare concern of Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez, a 6-year-old child who lived in Everman with his mother and four biological siblings and two half-siblings. An anonymous tipster reported they had not seen Noel since November of last year.

Everman officers responded to the family home in the 3700 block of Wisteria to conduct a welfare check on the boy. They spoke with Noel’s mother who told them he had been living with his biological father in Mexico since November. There were no immediate concerns to warrant a further investigation.

The information was shared with Child Protective services.

On March 23, Child Protective services reached back out to Everman PD and advised they had spoken with multiple other family members who had not heard from Noel since November of last year. They expressed significant concern for the child’s welfare. CPI was able to track down the biological father in Mexico who did not have custody, and informed authorities he was unable to even meet him due to a prior deportation out of the United States. Records from the Homeland Security supported his statements.

Additionally, CPI investigators attempted to make contact with Noel’s siblings at the school, but they were absent. Authorities confirm there have been previous issues with the mother.

On March 24, an arrest warrant was issued for Noel’s mother for false reporting of a missing child.

Based upon the totality of the circumstances, an Amber Alert was issued for Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez.

At around 9:00pm Saturday evening, Everman police learned Noel’s mother, her husband, and the other siblings had fled the country on a Turkish flight to Istanbul, just prior to the issuance of the Amber Alert. Noel was not listed as a passenger on that flight.

Based on this information, the Amber Alert was discontinued and an Endangered Missing Persons Alert was issued through Texas DPS.

His mother is not cooperating with authorities.

Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez is significantly disabled. He suffers from developmental disorders, physical disabilities, and chronic lung disease.

Police have taken possession of a vehicle at DFW Airport where a travel visa was located.

Everman PD requests anyone with information to contact them at 817-293-2923. Any information is appreciated.
