AMW Tipsters Bust Fugitive Sisters, Recover Kids
When AMW aired the case of Kimberly Alvarado and her sister, Marissa Pomarico, our
hotline lit up with calls from dozens of tipsters, many of whom work in the porn industry.
Several claimed to have worked with Pomarico and told us she was going by the name "Jewel Affair".
A quick search of the internet proved the tips where right on.
Meanwhile, another tipster called the FBI in Las Vegas and informed agents of where Pomarico, Alvarado and the two children could be found. However, when they arrived at the residence the two fugitives and two children were already gone.
By 2:00 am Pacific time Marissa had surrendered to police in Los Angeles. It turns out she had been in California for a week shooting a movie. She had learned she was on America's Most Wanted and was encouraged to turn herself in by members of the porn industry.
Justin And Lexie Are Rescued
Yet authorities were still concerned about the whereabouts of Kimberly Alvarado and her two children. They learned that Kimberly had fled Las Vegas with her two children shortly after her profile on AMW.
By now agents had obtained her cell phone number and NYPD detectives called her. They say she indicated that she would did not want to surrender.
Agents were concerned, but they were certain she was heading toward California, so they put out a BOLO for Kimberly, her children and the Dodge Durango she was driving. They were right on. By 11:30 am Pacific time police in San Bernadino, California spotted the vehicle. They were able to arrest Kimberly without incident and the children were quickly placed in the care of Child Protective services.
