Details of Disappearance Marcus was abducted by his non-custodial father, Sergio Farina, from his Los Angeles, California home on December 6, 1991. Photographs and vital statistics for Sergio are posted below this case summary. He picked up Marcus up from the home of the baby's mother, his estranged wife, ostensibly to take the child to the pediatrician.
When Sergio did not return with Marcus, the baby's mother went to Sergio's apartment. She found all the rooms empty and the message, "Ha! Ha! Ha! Youll never find us. Merry Christmas!" written on a note which was stuck to a mirror.
A photo and age-progressed image of Sergio are posted with this case summary. His Date of Birth Used is December 14, 1957, making him 33 years old at the time of Marcus's abduction. He's described as Hispanic, 5'10 to 5'11, 165 to 185 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.
Sergio is a Uruguayan national and speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. He may use the alias last names Salerno and/or Silva, or the alias Pedro Bispo. Sergio is balding. He has a college degree in astronomy, but has pursued various occupations, including acting and trading in precious gems. He also enjoys exotic plants.
The state of California issued a warrant for Sergio's arrest for kidnapping charges on December 12, 1991, six days after he and Marcus disappeared. An FBI warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued for Sergio on October 27, 1993, almost two years after he abducted his son.
Marcus and Sergio may be in South America, possibly Uruguay or Brazil, or they may be in Aquila, a city in the province of Abruzzo in west central Italy. The child's case is unsolved.
