    Details of Disappearance

    Alexandra disappeared from Phoenix, Arizona on March 30, 2007. Authorities believe she was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Angelica Pina, nicknamed Angela. Pina's date of birth is July 7, 1957, making her 49 at the time. Photographs and additional information for her are unavailable. She and Alexandra may be in the Tijuana, Mexico area. They may be in the company of Alexandra's adult half-sisters, Andrea and Nicole.

    Alexandra's mother and the child's father, Thomas Mason Billman, had been in a custody battle since 2002. Pina made multiple requests to take Alexandra and move away, as far as Barbados in one instance, but these were denied because the court felt she was trying to distance the child from her father. Eventually Pina refused to let Alexandra have any contact with Thomas at all, and he filed for custody. Pina attended a custody hearing on March 22, but missed scheduled hearings on April 3, April 10 and April 26. She also ignored court orders that she put Alexandra in counseling and allow the child access to her father. Temporary custody was given to Thomas, but by then Alexandra was missing. In July 2007, there was another hearing at which Pina again failed to appear and full custody was given to Thomas, with no visitation for Pina; the court ruled that she "would endanger seriously the child's physical, mental, moral or emotional health."

    Thomas hasn't had contact with Alexandra since 2004, but he continues to search for her.
