    UT - Juab Co., Child's skull found at lake, Nov'96 - Rene Romero

    I have not heard of any serious attempts to recover this poor boy's body and I think there should be some. He deserves to have a proper grave. As they have the suspects in custody, why not just get them to tell where they put Rene's remains?

    Rene Alberto Romero (4) - Reno NV, 28 Nov 1994


    Missing Since: November 28, 1994 from Reno, Nevada
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: November 29, 1989
    Age: 4 years old
    Height and Weight: 3'0, 45 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Hispanic male. Brown hair, brown eyes.

    Details of Disappearance

    Rene was last seen at his family's residence in Reno, Nevada on November 28, 1994. He has never been heard from again.


    Rene's mother, Ana Isabel Romero, and her boyfriend, Alvaro Mejia Ortiz (sometimes spelled "Mejia-Ortiz"), were charged with child abuse and Rene's murder in 1998. They blamed each other for Rene's death. Each said the other killed Rene and they worked together to dispose of the child's remains. Ana pleaded guilty to her son's murder. Ortiz pleaded not guilty but was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole. He could have gotten the death penalty.


    Investigators say Ortiz and Ana abused Rene and his two younger brothers and Rene died from it. The couple moved to Los Angeles, California immediately after Rene's presumed death and it wasn't until they were investigated for the reported abuse of Ana's other children that police realized Rene was missing. Rene's brother, who was three years old in 1994, testified that Ortiz gave Rene some juice and the child collapsed and died shortly afterward.


    Police believe Rene's body was dumped in a remote area, possibly outside the state of Nevada. His remains have never been found.

    UT - HispMale Child (UP 8515), 4-5, Nov'96 - Rene Alberto Romero

    Anthony Steven Moya missing from Denver, CO

    Jaub, County Utah. A straight shot 500 miles on interstate/highway from Denver. The NAMUS information is vague and contradictory. Maybe a match?

    If he was found in 1996, how can they estimate death as being 1987-88? What I mean is, how would they narrow it to that small time frame vs 1985...or 1990 or example?

    Rene Alberto Romero
    Rene, 4, disappeared from Reno, Nevada on November 28, 1994. He wasn't reported missing for some time, however, because his mother and her boyfriend, Ana Isabel Romero and Alvaro Mejia Ortiz, moved immediately afterward and tried to conceal his disappearance. In 1998, his mother and her boyfriend were both charged with the child's murder. Ana pleaded guilty and testified against Ortiz, who was convicted. They are both in prison. Rene's body was recovered in Utah in 1996, but it wasn't identified until February 2014.
    I suggested this match in January 2013, but I have no idea whether it had anything to do with the identification. RIP poor child.
