WEST CHESTER, Ohio -- West Chester police issued an amber alert Thursday for a 12-year-old girl who may have been abducted by a family friend.

Police said witnesses saw Moniz get into a car belonging to, Rob Rethamel, 39. Police said Rethamel is the brother of the boyfriend of Moniz's mother.

Moniz is described as 5 feet 2 inches tall and 110 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a white jacket and jeans.


Rob Rethamel

Rethamel is described as 6 feet tall and 198 pounds. He has dirty blond hair and blue eyes. Rethamel may be driving a white 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck with Ohio license plate No. EWU4540.

Police said they are investigating as a kidnapping because Rethamel does not have custody of the girl nor permission to pick her up from school.

An initial search of state and local databases showed that Rethamel is not a registered sex offender.

WEST CHESTER TWP. — West Chester Police have found a 12-year-old girl suspected of being kidnapped around 9 a.m. today, Oct. 14 from Lakota Ridge Junior School.

Brianna Moniz was returned back to her school just after 11 a.m. when the Amber Alert to find her was canceled. Around 8:25 a.m. her uncle, Rob Rethamel, was suspected of picking her up from school without her parents’ permission, according to police.

School spokeswoman Laura Kursman said prior to entering the building, the girl was seen by school officials leaving with a man and questioned the situation. They contacted the parents, who also were concerned.

Administrators contacted parents through the auto call system and met with students to discuss the situation.

Police have not yet issued a statement on what happened and if there will be charges filed.

The school officials were alert and LE were on the ball. I'm glad she's okay. It wasn't her uncle, it was her mom's boyfriend's brother. They are still looking for him and considering it a kidnapping. Hopefully it was some kind of misunderstanding, but she got off the bus at school and got in the car with him. They haven't released where her took her or what happened.

Yeah, it's pretty freaky. They still haven't released what happened to Brianna in the hours she was missing, now this charge on the rape of another child. It took them a couple of days to locate him. Here's his arrest picture:
