Stories run daily of people gone missing. Some end in tragedy, while others end in a
heartrending limbo of uncertainty. Still others, like the Tuesday evening abduction case of 4-year-old Lesley Estefania Perez
in Hidalgo, Texas, end well, the child returned safely home.
But in the cases of abduction, such as the tragic Sandra Cantu case in California and the uncertainty of the Haleigh Cummings
case in Florida, not knowing where the abducted child is
becomes only the first aspect of the unfolding horror of the missing child. And until the child is recovered -- and sometimes

But in this case it was Lesley Perez' older sister, 12-year-old Brianda, who made all the

her sister. She had fought with him but the man had proven too strong for her.
According to the Brownsville Herald, Hidalgo Police and the FBI praised Brianda's information
and description, acknowledging that the details given by the young girl had led them to the profile of Christian Elijalee
McMillan, a 23-year-old California carnival worker who lived on a rented farm near Mercedes. Police arrested McMillan late
Wednesday night, a little over 24 hours after the child went missing, and discovered Lesley Perez relatively unhurt. She was
rushed to Knapp Medical Center in Westlaco, but was found to have not been sexually accosted (according to her family), her
only wounds red marks around her wrists where Christian McMillan had bound her during the abduction.
Christian McMillan has a history of sexual predation and authorities believe that it was
his intent to sexually abuse Lesley Perez when he abducted her. McMillan had cased out the neighborhood where the 4-year-old
lived in his white Ford F-150 for three days prior to the kidnapping.
