National Center for Missing & Exploited Children: Amber Alert

Circumstances: Ryan was abducted by his father, Lonnie Ramos, on July 2, 2008. A felony warrant for Kidnapping was issued for the abductor on July 2, 2008. They may be traveling in a red Porsche with license plates 4BWU827 or a white Chevrolet Suburban with license plates 5LTC712 or a 2005 Fleetwood Providence RV with California license plates 5EGW556 similar to the one pictured above. CAUTION IS ADVISED.

Description of father Lonnie Ramos:

  • 46 year old white manLonnie_Ramos
  • about 6 feet 3 inches
  • 180 pounds.
  • He is believed to have rented a 39-foot 2005 Fleetwood Providence purple and gold motor home Wednesday with California license plate No. 5EGW556, Brotheim said.

A man who allegedly shot his estranged wife in the face and fled with his 9-year-old son may have switched his car for a motor home, authorities said Thursday.

An Amber Alert was in effect throughout California for Lonnie Ramos, 46. He was believed to be driving a rented 39-foot purple-and-gold Fleetwood Providence motor home with the license plate number 5EGW556, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said.

Ramos was possibly in the San Diego area and Border Patrol agents were notified in case he tried to head for Mexico, sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.

Amormino said Ramos was considered “armed and extremely dangerous.”

Ramos apparently jumped out from behind a car or bushes and shot his estranged wife in the face with a semiautomatic weapon about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when she drove to his home in the Portola Hills area to pick up their son, Ryan, for a custody exchange, Amormino said. (Fox News)

Police ask that anyone who has information on the shooting and abduction of Ryan Ramos please contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at 714-628-7170 or dial 911

UPDATE I: Lake Forest man accused of kidnapping son and shooting estranged wife had financial and personal problems

UPDATE II: Amber Alert issued for child who could be in Utah

Ramos was seen with his son trying to buy plane tickets out of John Wayne Airport after the incident occurred. Ramos has family in Texas and Washington, D.C. Police say he may also have ties to Utah, although they haven’t specified what those ties may be.

UPDATE III: Orange County authorities expected to make the announcement at a press conference later Saturday morning.

They think Ramos may have rented a purple and gold Fleetwood Providence motor home with license plate 5EGW556.

UPDATE IV: Utah Amber Alert no longer in effect for Ryan Ramos

UPDATE V: Father (Lonnie Ramos) who took boy (Ryan Ramos) likely in Mexico, say police

The Amber Alert went out to Utah late Friday because Ramos has a girlfriend in Draper, police said. It was canceled at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. A Wednesday sighting of the motor home in Utah was likely mistaken, Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino said. 

Police are planning to search the motor home, a 2005 Fleetwood Providence, for possible clues and then work with Mexican authorities to pursue Ramos, Amormino said. 

Mexican law prevents its citizens from being extradited to the United States for death penalty charges, but Ramos is neither a Mexican citizen nor a death

UPDATE VI: Ryan Ramos Found Safe in Mexico

Ryan Romas has been found safe in a church in Juarez Mexico. His father is still a fugative.

Authorities on Sunday announced that Ryan Ramos, allegedly kidnapped by his father last week, has been found safe in Mexico.

Lonnie Ramos, the boy’s father, allegedly shot his estranged wife and then kidnapped Ryan, according to Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Officials said that the boy will be reunited with his family shortly. His mother, Gynnae Ramos is recovering from the shooting.

Lonnie Ramos has not been found, according to authorities.

Ryan Ramos was found alone but safe in Juarez Sunday afternoon and is now with U.S. officials there. He’s said to be in “excellent condition”.

UPDATE VII: Fugitive Dad Killed By Bus

A desperate five-day search for a 9-year-old boy abducted by his father in Southern California ended in Mexico, where the man died after being hit by a bus and the boy was found safe in a Mormon church building, authorities said Monday.

Ryan Ramos was found alone Sunday in a Mormon church building in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and arrived in Orange County early Monday, where he was reunited with his family, sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.
