Everman Police are continuing their search for a missing six-year-old boy, Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez, who has severe developmental and physical disabilities. The Amber Alert for Noel Rodriguez-Alvarez was issued on Saturday night, but it has since turned into an Endangered Missing Persons Alert as the police have yet to find him.
Police officials have confirmed that they do not have any physical evidence related to Noel’s status as a missing person. Everman Police Chief Craig Spencer said, “I need to be very clear that we currently do not have any physical evidence related to Noel’s status as a missing person. What I do know is that we have a six-year-old disabled boy [who] cannot be accounted for.”
Recently, the police discovered that Noel’s mother, Cindy Rodriguez-Singh, and her other children, including Noel’s stepfather, boarded an international flight two days before the Amber Alert was issued. The family’s car was discovered at the DFW Airport, abandoned, but Noel was nowhere to be found.
Everman police learned that the mother, stepfather, and siblings all left the country on a Turkish Airways flight to Istanbul that flew out on March 23, where Noel was not listed as a passenger. Child Protective Investigations, or CPI, asked Everman police to conduct a welfare check on Noel at their home on Wisteria Drive in Everman after which they found Cindy Rodriguez-Singh, Noel’s mother, told police that Noel was with his biological father in Mexico.
However, CPI found out that wasn’t true as family members informed them they have not seen Noel since November of 2022. “It appeared to the CPI investigator that the mother was intentionally avoiding authorities,” said Chief Spencer.
In a recent press conference, Chief Spencer shared that CPS had previously taken action against Cindy Rodriguez-Singh for her behavior. The officials have also obtained an arrest warrant for Cindy Rodriguez-Singh for giving a false report about a missing person.
According to Chief Spencer, “He has a requirement to be on oxygen at certain points in time, and we don’t know if he’s getting that,” and the police are “desperately looking” for the public’s help in finding Noel. A homeowner near them told CBS News Texas that Cindy Rodriguez-Singh, her husband, and kids lived in a property behind his house, and Noel’s mother was a regular customer at a gas station down the road from the family’s home. Jeremiah Childers, the gas station owner and neighbor, said, “I have seen the child that they’re looking for […] you wouldn’t think anything was really wrong with the situation.”
Police officials are urging anyone with any information regarding Noel’s whereabouts to come forward and assist in the search for the six-year-old.
