Amner Figueroa, an illegal Guatemala national, is wanted in Franklin County for Enticing a Child for Immoral Purposes, Custodial Interference, Public Intoxication, and Second Degree Escape. In mid-September 2010, Figueroa was living in Red Bay. While attending a football game, he attempted to lure a seven year old girl into the men’s room. When she tried to flee, Figueroa grabbed the child, but was restrained by adults who saw the attempted kidnapping.
Figueroa was incarcerated in the Franklin County jail without bail awaiting trial and almost certain deportation when he escaped approximately three weeks later. The illegal immigrant may have returned to Guatemala, but still has relatives living in Franklin County. He is currently 26 years old, a Hispanic Indian, with black hair and brown eyes. He stands 5′ 7″ tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds.
If you have information concerning Amner Figueroa, call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department at 256-332-8820 or Crimestoppers at 256-386-8685. There is a reward offered.
We also understand the mother of the young girl, who identifies herself with the pseudonym “Kim,” is also very interested in finding Amner Figueroa. We here at Pen-N-Sword have absolutely no objection to anyone turning over any information or Amner himself to the child’s family. We know, see, and hear nothing. Good luck!
