Man arrested for kidnapping 6-year-old was in country illegally

Missing 6-year-old reunited with family

FORT WORTH - Police have arrested a man for kidnapping a 6-year-old Fort Worth girl who went missing over the weekend.

The girl was apparently taken from her family’s home on the 3500 block of Avenue K early Saturday morning. She was found hours later at a nearby park after a citizen reported hearing a child screaming.

Police found a “person of interest” in the wooded area of the park Saturday. After an investigation into the incident, Moya Alas was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping.

An interview with Immigration Customs Enforcement revealed that Alas is an illegal immigrant. An immigration detainer was placed on Alas, and he has been booked into jail “without further incident,” police said.
