    Details of Disappearance

    Bianca was last seen on January 12, 2005. She was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Elfarida Damanik, two weeks after custodial rights were given to Bianca's father, Robert McConnell. A photograph and vital statistics for Elfarida are posted below this case summary. They are believed to be in Jakarta, Indonesia; Indonesia is where Elfarida was born. She has work experience as a nanny.

    Bianca's parents never married and their romantic relationship last only a few months. McConnell stated he had heard from Elfarida since she abducted the child; she has allegedly called and emailed him repeatedly to request money, but she refused to let him contact Bianca or tell him her exact whereabouts.

    There are warrants out for Elfarida's arrest for interference with custody and international parental kidnapping, but Indonesia will not recognize an American custody order. Bianca's case remains unsolved. Macedonia, Ohio police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are handling the case.
