According to Nicaraguan police, clues are available and they are hot on the trail but cannot say whether or not she is in the country. A local says Miller celebrated her child’s birthday in his home last year.
Yoder, who works the remote village of Waslala, 160 miles (260 kilometers) from Managua, told the AP that she celebrated her daughter’s birthday in his house last year.
“She came here to have a good time, and we allowed her to celebrate her daughter’s birthday in my house because of the love we have for the girl,” Pablo Yoder said.
Miller gave birth to her daughter Isabella (both pictured) in Vermont in 2003 with then-partner Janet Jenkins. Miller moved to Virginia with their daughter once the couple split and refused contact with Jenkins.
After filing a lawsuit in a Vermont court, Jenkins received parental rights from Judge Richard Cohen, despite the fact that the law of Vermont does not grant parenthood rights to spouses or civil union partners automatically. Cohen ordered frequent, unsupervised visitations with Jenkins.
In 2009 the court ordered custody to be turned over to Jenkins with visitation for Miller. In that time, Miller had disappeared with the child.
