Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Light brown hair, black eyes. Chloe has a small dog bite scar on the left side of her nose.
Details of Disappearance Chloe was last seen in Kansas City, Missouri on March 15, 2006. She was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Aline Rivas-Vera. A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for her on May 18, 2006.
Aline and Didier shared custody of Chloe during their divorce proceedings. Aline fled with Chloe during a court-ordered visit. Didier was granted full custody of his daughter afterwards. Aline and Chloe are known to have flown to Mexico via Houston, Texas.
Didier filed a lawsuit against Continental Airlines in connection with Chloe's abduction. Mexican law requires a single-parent passenger traveling alone with a minor child to present a notarized letter from the absent parent authorizing travel for that child out of the United States into Mexico. According to Didier, Continental Airlines never asked to see Aline's letter, in violation of the law and its own policies, and thus failed to prevent Chloe's abduction.
Didier has made at least six trips to Mexico to try and get Chloe returned to him. He has filed for her return under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Aline filed for full custody of her daughter in Mexican courts, but this was denied.
Aline's mother and twin brother, who both live in the Kansas City area, both traveled to Mexico City to testify against Aline and request Chloe's return to the United States.
In April 2008, a Mexican family court judge ruled that, as Chloe had been living in Mexico since 2006, she should remain there. Didier appealed, however, and in November 2009 a Mexican high court ordered Chloe's return to the United States and the care of her father.
Aline and Chloe went into hiding after the ruling, however, and their current whereabouts are unknown. They are presumed to still be in Mexico, probably in the Mexico City area, where Aline has relatives. Chloe's case remains unsolved.
