    Details of Disappearance

    Brenda was last seen on July 23, 2004 in Logan, Utah. She was abducted by her non-custodial father, Mariano Madrigal Becerril. A photograph and vital statistics for Becerril are posted below this case summary. A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for him on October 21, 2011.

    Brenda's custodial mother let Becerril see Brenda for the weekend and he took her and fled. They may be traveling in a red 1997 Nissan pickup truck. Brenda and Becerril may still be in the local area, or they may be in Mexico, possibly in Becerril's native city of La Huacana in the state of Michoacan. The child's whereabouts are unknown and her case remains unsolved.
