It was in 2002 when Greg Allen’s life changed forever. On the tail of what had been a messy divorce and even messier custody battle for his four-year-old daughter, Sabrina, things had started to look up.

Greg, an engineering scientist, had been granted primary custody, and after months of fighting with his ex-wife, Dara, things had started to get easier. They were falling into a good routine, and the parents were beginning the road to cooperatively co-parenting.

Greg brought Sabrina to her mom on April 19, 2002, for the weekend. It had been agreed that Dara would return Sabrina on Sunday evening, but she never showed up. Greg recalled the last goodbye before the drop-off. Sabrina had looked at him and said, “Daddy, don’t ever forget me.” At the time, he thought it had been a silly little exchange but had turned into an almost sinister warning.

In the early stages of the divorce, Dara had often threatened to take Sabrina away. Dara was from Mexico and had wanted to return there with Sabrina since the beginning. When Greg was granted primary custody, the courts had agreed that Sabrina should stay in Texas.
