MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami-Dade Schools Police issued an arrest warrant in the case of a Coral Gables High School student missing since last week.
On Tuesday, police issued an arrest warrant for 20-year-old Fabel Escalante who they consider to be armed and dangerous. Escalante is wanted for interference with the custody of a minor.
Sixteen year old Samantha Delgado went missing last week.
She was last seen at Coral Gables High School when her mother dropped her off Friday. Her mom says she didn’t act any differently than on any other day.
Family and friends believe she may be with Escalante who she’s been secretly dating. Samantha’s parents believe she did not leave with him willingly, and her cousin says he had threatened Samantha a week before her disappearance.
Police said Escalante has a criminal record of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery on a law enforcement officer.
Police said he is known to drive a 2003 black Audi Station wagon.
