An Endangered Missing Alert has been issued for Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez. Noel is af 6-year-old boy from Everman, Texas, situated approximately 12 miles south of Fort Worth.
The child was initially reported missing on Saturday, March 25, after last being seen in the 3700 block of Wisteria Drive in Everman around midnight on Friday. Noel and his mother reportedly live in the area.
Family members informed the authorities that they had not seen the boy since November. On Saturday night, it was discovered that Noel’s immediate family had taken a flight to Istanbul, but the child’s name did not appear on the passenger manifest.
In a subsequent update, police stated that a vehicle related to the missing report was found unoccupied in a parking garage at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Noel is described as having black hair, brown eyes, standing 4 feet tall, and weighing 90 pounds.
Everman Police Chief Craig Spencer mentioned that Noel has severe health problems, as he was born at 25 weeks and suffers from multiple physical disabilities and developmental disorders. The child has a social disorder and chronic lung disease, which has necessitated the use of oxygen at certain times.
The alert for Noel was updated to an Endangered Missing Alert early on Sunday morning. Later that day, the Everman Police Department held a press conference to provide a full timeline of the case.
Chief Spencer explained that there is currently no physical evidence pointing to Noel’s status as a missing person. However, because the child has not been located, the authorities will continue investigating the case as a Missing Person situation. Spencer also confirmed that there is no evidence suggesting any danger to the boy’s siblings.
Anyone with information regarding Noel’s whereabouts is urged to contact police immediately.
