Caldwell Police, FBI confirm missing mom and three children have crossed into Mexico

Detectives with the Caldwell Police Department and special agents of the FBI Salt Lake City Division have developed new information today in the disappearance of three Idaho children, who were taken last week by their non custodial mother. Investigative leads confirm all four crossed into Mexico as early as Sunday evening. A witness says the three children appeared to be unharmed and with their mother. They drove across the border in a grey, 4-door, Pontiac 6000 (Nevada license plate number 389XPR). This is the same vehicle they left Idaho in. Law enforcement continues to search for all four, however due to this new information the police department will request the Amber Alerts in Idaho and Nevada be cancelled.

The three children, who were living in foster care in Caldwell, Idaho, were taken by their non custodial mother, 35-year old Bertha Sabala Guerrero, over the weekend. Media and the public in several states were alerted to the disappearance of the children, 5-year-old Esmerelda Guerrero-Lopez (female), 7-year-old Mirella Guerrero-Lopez (female), and 9-year-old Ubaldo Guerrero-Lopez Jr. (male). The investigation shows Guerrero drove through Nevada and Arizona to cross into Mexico.

It is important to note, detectives with the Caldwell Police Department and FBI special agents continue to investigate this case. A state arrest warrant was issued in Idaho for Guerrero that allows for nationwide extradition. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Caldwell Police Department in Idaho at (208) 454-7531.
