They lived in a foster home for minors in the Community of Madrid, and had a visiting regime. His father warns that the oldest requires medication and the minor has just had an operation
Nine days ago the three Cebrián brothers did not return to the reception center where they lived. That Sunday, like so many others, the mother picked them up for one of her visits. Few hours together. From noon to the beginning of the night. But he didn’t come with them the next day either. The municipal services of the Community of Madrid had withdrawn custody of both parents, in 2016, when evaluating that they did not receive the minimum care. Miguel Cebrián and Nieves Bartu are no longer a couple. They had their children when she was barely coming of age. He has a little more leave with the children, who can stay to sleep in the father’s house some weekends. The father lives in San Agustín de Guadalix, the mother in Ciempozuelos. The children, in Aranjuez, in the Mother Teresa residence for minors.
The alert was launched by the National Police and SOS Disappeared echoed the search, when Nieves, 27, did not take the children to his temporary home.
The oldest, Jonathan, is 9 years old, 1.40 meters tall and weighs 36 kilos. The one in the middle, Izán, is 10 centimeters shorter, and weighs 30 kilos. The little one, Adam, is five years old, reaches the meter and weighs 18 kilos. They were not “re-entered” into their facility, the search sign says. All three have brown hair and brown eyes. the authorities ask for citizen help. “The children will be fine because she is their mother.” Miguel Cebrián said in an interview on 7NNTV. “But the oldest has a medication for hyperactivity and the youngest has just undergone surgery for vegetations and tonsils and has check-ups. Thus, she cannot take them to a doctor, to school or to a park to play.
Although there is no fear for the physical integrity of the children, the mother has not been able to be located by the authorities since that November 15, when the alarm was raised, leaving her children as missing. Neither at her home nor at her contact telephone number did they find the woman. Her car is damaged and they are looking for her in the security cameras of public transport, especially those that serve the capital Madrid and Córdoba, cities where it is suspected that she could have sought refuge.
“It was the same desperation,” explains the father. «Because it’s been many years (that the children are in a foster home) and the world falls on you, and you try and you try. I hope that the Community of Madrid realizes that they have a father and do not have to be in a center ».
The National Police, in charge of the case with the Unit for Attention to the Family and Women (UFAM), put the photo of the children on their social networks, to request citizen help. The controversy has not taken long to ignite, comparing this case with that of Juana Rivas and speaking of parental kidnapping, an extreme that not even the father has wanted to accuse.
