ALICE -There's some new information on the brief kidnapping of a young Alice girl by a car thief earlier this week. Alice police released a picture of the suspected kidnapper Friday and they are asking for your help in identifying him.
"I just can't get it out of my mind. I could be okay for a while and then it just comes back," says Alina's mother.
Alina's mother says it's been difficult week for her, the kidnapping nightmare continuously playing over and over in her head.
"The little one has been okay. She says 'mom don't cry no more I'm sorry'. And I say 'it's not you'r fault it's my fault. Mama's fault.'," says Alina's mother.
But now with the release of this sketch, Alina's mother and police hope someone will be able to identify the suspected kidnapper and car thief.
"We are hoping with the help of the people out there and being able to see this sketch somebody out there might recognize this individual if he's local," say Alice Police Lieutenant Tony Aguilar.
Alina's mother says she got a good look a the man Tuesday morning and says she would be able to pick him out in a line up.
"The light was on in the car, see so when he got in and he turned around and looked at me so I got a glimpse of him you know real good," she says.
On that Tuesday morning, she regrets not listening to her gut when a car drove slowly by her car, with 3 year old Alina inside.
"With my little one in there I never thought anything like that would happen here. I hear it all the time happening somewhere else but never here. I just couldn't believe it. I should have gone with my gut. I saw him coming and something was up," says the girl's mother.
But after walking just halfway down her daughter's sidewalk it was too late to listen to her mothers intuition.
"I said no my baby is in there my baby's in there and he just turned around looked at me and took off," says Alina's mother.
Alina's mother has now changed her morning routine when she drops off her children and keeps them just a little bit closer at all times.
If you recognize the man in the sketch call the Alice Police Department or Crimestoppers at 664-7867.
