September 16, 2004 [ 7:45 a.m. ]


On September 11, 2004 , at about 9:15 a.m. , The El Paso County Sheriff's Office (EPSO) was notified by the Colorado Springs Police Department that a female had come into the Falcon Station to report her two children missing possibly by kidnapping. There was a language with barrier with the victim only speaking Spanish. Once it was determined that the incident occurred in Eastern El Paso County the case was turned over to EPSO.

EPSO investigators interviewed the mother of the children, and learned that she had a dispute with her ex-boyfriend, Rene Casas-Pacheco, DOB 10-21-71 , while they were both at a nightclub during the evening of September 10 th or early morning hours of September 11 th . After the dispute Casas-Pacheco left the club.

The mother of the children arrived back at her residence, in the 41000 block of Truckton Rd. , in eastern El Paso County , at about 4:30 a.m. She noticed her children missing. Andrianna Elizabeth Campos-Valverde, a 2 year old female, and Kevin Campos-Valverde, a 1 year old male, were put to bed by the babysitter along with the sitter's two children. The babysitter's two children were safely sleeping in their beds when the other two children were noticed missing.

The mother believed the children could have been abducted by Rene Casas-Pacheco. Mr. Pacheco is not the father of the children and has no legal right to the children. An Amber Alert was issued at about 11:00 a.m.

At about 8:00 p.m. , September 11, 2004 , our communications center was advised that the suspect, Rene Casas-Pacheco had been contacted with the two children in Mexico shortly after they crossed the US/Mexican Border. After about two hours this information was confirmed and the Amber Alert was cancelled. The children were apparently unharmed. US authorities will be working with Mexican authorities to have Mr. Casas-Pacheco returned to the US . A warrant has been issued for his arrest, charging him with 2 counts of 1 st Degree Kidnapping, with a $1 million dollar bond.
