    IN - Alejandra Gutierrez, 10, Fort Wayne, 8 Dec 2005

    When 16-year-old Martin Gutierrez left his house Thursday morning, his little sister was still sleeping.

    Alejandra Gutierrez, a fifth-grader at Maplewood Elementary School, could catch a few extra winks because Fort Wayne Community Schools had one of its regularly scheduled two-hour “delay days.” But when the school day did begin, Gutierrez wasn’t there.

    Gutierrez, 10, was last seen at 9:50 a.m. leaving her home in the 4000 block of Clinton Street for a bus stop at Calhoun Street and Branning Avenue. She was reported missing at 9 p.m. Thursday after her mother returned home from work and could not find the girl, a Fort Wayne Police Department report said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    School investigates why family wasn't notified of absence

    December 11, 2005 (FORT WAYNE, Ind.) - The disappearance of a ten-year-old Fort Wayne girl has led school officials to look into why her school did not alert the family when she did arrive for classes.

    The school notifying the family is completely peripheral. Alejandra wasn't on the bus.

    By the time her absence from class could have been reported, and checked against those with excused absenses, and the bilingual employee contacted the mother, Alejandra was long gone.

    Sad. But by the time the system would have worked, it was too late anyway.

    Roll is taken first thing in the morning. The info is then taken to the office where a certain person notifies parents if their children aren't in their class.
    I always received a call by 9:00 a.m. I'm sure that the school had the work number for the mother. Schools always have numbers of where to reach the parents and emergency numbers.

    If LE could have been notified in the morning instead of the evening it would have put them hours ahead instead of behind.

    Roll isn't taken here until school has been in session for an hour and 15 minutes. Here, elementary school starts at 7:45, and you aren't considered "absent" until 9, when roll is taken. A call from school is really effective if the child is playing hooky, or some weird thing happened and the child's bus stop was skipped, etc.

    I just think you're already too late to catch a kidnapper in this system, no matter how timely the school is in notifying the parent. It's a good way to keep tabs on a child who's playing hooky, but it's way too slow to catch a child who's been kidnapped by a stranger.

    The family didn't even report her missing until 9:00 p.m. I doubt that a phone call from the school would have done much.

    No amber alert on this?

    12-12-05 Fortwayne.com:
    Police have found no evidence that Alejandra was abducted, but are not ruling out any possible explanations for her disappearance, police spokesman Mike Joyner said`. “We don’t know, we really don’t know,” he said.

    This is a 10 year old girl for gosh sakes.....

    Regardless of there being no evedence of foul play we have a 10 year old girl missing. There needs to be an Amber Alert, major media coverage, searches, and so on....
    Yes, the school needs to work on their absentee parent call- but the main focus needs to be where is this little girl.
    Has anyone heard anything new on this? Something more than we already know.

    FOUND DAILY COVERAGE FROM FORT WAYNE NEWSPAPER LINKED ABOVE....SOMEHOW I CAN NOT GET BACK THERE TO POST LINK FOR STORY FROM YESTERDAY..

    Seems family is upset and blames such since mom was home and not at work yet,so if she was reported absent then mom would have known something was wrong and would have looked right away.

    Seems family is doing their best to post fliers, talk with neighbors, friends.....blessthem. I think they need some massive assistance to get word out...like I would if she was mine. Just not knowing where to turn, what to do.
    Hope LE is helping out big time, checking offenders in neighborhood,etc.

    Prayers she is found soon.

    Possible lead in this case. The information comes from a tv station in Indianapolis. The Fort Wayne stations have yet to report this possible lead.

    24-Hour News 8

    The Fort Wayne man who admitted to killing his family this week could be linked to another crime involving a child. A source close to the investigation says Simon Rios is now a suspect in the disappearance of a little girl.

    Alejandra Gutierrez, 10, is the subject of a multi-agency search after she went missing on Thursday.

    “When a child this young is missing for this long it's a very, very serious and grave situation,” said Chief Rusty York, Fort Wayne PD.

    On Tuesday morning, a family in Gutierrez’s neighborhood on the Fort Wayne south side was strangled. The man of the house, 33-year-old Simon Rios, admitted to strangling his wife and three daughters. Rios is being charged with their murders.

    “I'm not saying there's definitely a connection but I'm not ruling it out because there is still an investigation,” said Chief York.

    That's about all the police chief would say about a connection between the girl's disappearance and the Rios killings. However, a source close to the investigation tells 24-Hour News 8 that the two are linked.

    A court document says Rios argued with his wife after she came home from work at 1:30 a.m. It says the subject of the argument was Rios doing things around the house.

    Meanwhile authorities are getting calls about Gutierrez and questions about why no Amber Alert was issued when she went missing.

    As 24-Hour News 8 learned in the disappearance of Katie Collman a year ago, state police need a reason to believe a child has been abducted and is in danger, along with a description of a suspect or car before an Amber Alert can be issued.

    “You're asking me if parents should be terrified. I don't know that they should be terrified, but they should be extremely careful until it's resolved. They should be careful anyway,” said Bob Scigalski, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. He is in Indiana to help on the case. “Certainly the parents of Alejandra were careful and sometimes, sometimes the devil wins and hopefully this isn't going to be the case, but that does happen.”

    In Marion County, the sheriff’s department has come up with a missing or endangered person alert procedure to follow when the criteria for an Amber Alert is not present and police officers still need the public's help in finding a child or even an adult who might be in danger. Authorities call on the media to get the information out.

    Police say while Rios has confessed to the four killings of his wife and daughters, he has not confessed to abducting Alejandra Gutierrez.

    Search for missing girl now involves FBI, Hispanic television network

    Information about missing 10-year-old Alejandra Gutierrez has now reached a national audience, and the FBI has been brought in to help aid Fort Wayne Police.
    Fernando Zapari, publisher of El Mexicano newspaper, contacted Marco Dominguez, a newscaster with the Univision television affiliate in Indianapolis, and told Dominguez about the continuing search for Alejandra. On Monday night, Zapari said the story aired in Los Angeles, the headquarters of Univision.

    Nancy Grace covered this little girl's story last night. Her older brother was on the show. Nancy asked the brother if he thought his sister might have been involved in the murder of the wife and three children that were murdered as they lived near the school. The brother said that he didn't think so. Who knows though. If the man did have something to do with this little girl's disappearance you would think he would just say so as he has already been charged with the murders of his whole family. He wouldn't really have anything to lose by confessing.
