    UPDATED: FOUND SAFE! How You Can Help Get This Child Home


    Houston, TX~ UPDATE: FOUND SAFE ON 12-25-13!  Elena “EJ” Fernandez, a 14 year old child, has been missing from her family since September 17th and the public's assistance in locating her is being requested. The Center for Search and Investigations (a pending non-profit organization), along with Law Enforcement and Elena's family are making strong efforts to find her but CFSI Representatives say more is needed.


    Getting Elena's pictures and information to as many as possible is a crucial factor in gaining the information that will lead to her return to her family. Members of the public, no matter where they are located, play a huge role in making this happen. CFSI members are asking that you please share Elena's flyer via social media, email and as printed copies hung around your community as much as possible. Every share has the potential to be the one that returns this beloved child home to her family.


    Fernandez is described as 5’3” tall, 130 lbs, with sandy brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing khaki pants, a yellow shirt with black writing on it, black tennis shoes and a beige purse. Her hair may be dyed auburn.


    If anyone has information concerning her whereabouts, contact Officer Hall at the Houston Police Department - (713) 731-5000 or CFSI CEO/Founder Chuck Foreman - (512) 644-9856.


    Due to the extended amount of time Elena has been missing her case is under the care of the NOMAD "not found yet" Division of Team CFSI. The NOMAD division of CFSI provides support to all State divisions when a child is missing and works to expand the reach of an investigation, providing additional resources as needed, when an investigation has gone on in excess of 9 weeks. NOMAD works with K9 Teams, Equine Search Teams, Truck Drivers and more to achieve those two words...Found Safe! To learn more about the Center for Search & Investigations please visit
