The FBI and Fullerton police are investigating the disappearance of a 12-year-old Fullerton girl who has been missing since Wednesday, when she did not come home from school, authorities said Saturday.
FBI officials believe that Diana Karen Gama may have been kidnapped by Hermillo Ocampo Morales, 34, the estranged boyfriend of Diana's mother. The FBI has obtained a federal warrant for Morales' arrest, said Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman in Los Angeles.
"At this point it would be unfair to be speculative about the girl's motivation, but we feel that he's obviously taken her away from her family," Eimiller said Saturday.
Diana, who was dropped off at Nicholas Junior High on Wednesday but did not attend classes, was last seen that morning talking on a cellphone.
