APD: Kids missing after mother took them from CYFD custody

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Detectives are asking the public’s help to find two young girls who were last seen Thursday with their mother during a supervised visit at a Northeast Albuquerque wellness center.

Simon Drobik, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said Destinee Carrillo, 27, took Reylen Carrillo, 7, and Liliana Carrillo, 5, from Engender Inc., near Menaul and Pennsylvania. The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department had full custody of the children at the time.

“Carrillo left the facility with the children without the permission of CYFD,” Drobik said. “(Carrillo) also has fake custodial paperwork that she printed off the internet stating that she has custody of the children which she does not.”

The trio is believed to be on foot or utilizing city buses in the Southeastern part of the city.
