Circumstances of Disappearance

Giannina and her brother, John , left home to go to the beach with a friend of the family and his three children. The children's mother met the friend but was told that her two children were not with him.

Law enforcement believe that the children were abducted for a ransom of $72,000 after a man, Thomas Rodriguez, left a suicide note. He explained the plot and his role in the kidnapping. No arrests were ever made and John and Giannina are still missing.
