    Details of Disappearance

    Lluvia disappeared from Houston, Texas on December 24, 2008. Authorities believe she was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Shamanique Shamona Bodie, who was employed as an obstetrician at the time. A photograph and vital statistics for Bodie are posted below this case summary. A felony warrant for custodial interference was issued for her on June 14, 2010. Lluvia's father, Toby McCraw, an American citizen, has full custody of her. He last saw his daughter on Christmas Eve, just before he had to take a business trip overseas. He left Lluvia with her mother. When he returned and went to pick up the child, Bodie had put her house up for sale and she and Lluvia had vanished.

    The last known location of Bodie and Lluvia was in the Bahamas, and they may still be in that country. Bodie is a Bahamian citizen. At the time of Lluvia's disappearance, the child was a student at Children First Academy, a charter school. Her father stated she spent the majority of her time with him and they ate lunch together daily. Her whereabouts are unknown and her disappearance remains unsolved.
