Everman police chief Craig Spencer says investigators are still thoroughly and meticulously working on the investigation.
Everman police will not give an update on the search for missing 6-year-old Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez
on Thursday, as previously expected.
Police chief Craig Spencer says at this time there are no substantial updates on the case at this time.
Spencer said that investigators thoroughly and meticulously working on the investigation.
If police determined that the mother or stepfather of Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez committed a criminal offense against Noel, they could issue a warrant and begin the extradition process.
In order for a crime to be considered extraditable under the treaty between the United States and India, the charges have to be severe enough to warrant punishment for at least one year, no matter if the law or one similar exists in India or if that law is considered as severe there.
If that is met, Everman police, or any agency wanting to extradite a suspect from India, would have to work with federal authorities to submit an extradition request through diplomatic channels, by the terms of the treaty.
India would require the U.S. to provide evidence, statements, documents, a copy of the warrant, “and such information as would justify the committal for trial of the person in the requested state,” according to the website for the Indian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
Indian authorities would review those documents and decide whether to approve or decline the extradition request. In “cases of urgency,” American authorities can request a provisional arrest while the extradition is being processed.
