Karla Alicia Campbell is wanted for parental kidnapping in Texas. On March 21, 2011, Campbell was awarded joint custody of her son after her divorce proceedings. An order within the decree of divorce stated that Campbell, her family members, agents, servants, employees and attorneys were prohibited from taking her son to Mexico for any reason. On August 2, 2011, Campbell's ex-husband had visitation rights for their son while Campbell was at work. He attempted to pick up their son at school, and at Campbell's residence, but they were not at either location. A neighbor told Campbell's ex-husband that he saw Campbell moving out, and the house appeared to be vacant.
Campbell was charged with family offense/interference with child custody and a state arrest warrant was issued by the 65th Judicial Court in El Paso, Texas, on September 19, 2011. A federal warrant was issued for Campbell's arrest by the United States District Court, Western District of Texas, on August 9, 2012, after Campbell was charged federally with removing a child from the United States with intent to obstruct the lawful exercise of parental rights and international parental kidnapping.
Campbell has Multiple Sclerosis and uses a four-wheeled walker for mobility. She does not drive, and is believed to rely upon others for transport. Campbell is believed to be living in Juarez, Mexico.
