FBI Seeks Missing Girl From Dallas 14 Years After DisappearanceSalem-News.com
FBI and Father of Ashlyn Wilson Mark Her 14th Birthday.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Thursday, November 20th 2008, marks Ashlyn Wilson’s 14th birthday. She has been missing since she was an infant. The FBI holds a federal fugitive warrant for her mother, Tara Suzanne Wilson, and agents are still, despite the years, actively pursuing this case.
The FBI's Beth Anne Steele in Portland, says Ashlyn was born in Dallas, Oregon. After her birth, her father, Dan Wilson fought for legal custody. (Although Dan and Tara Wilson share the same last name, they were never married.) Tara Wilson failed to appear at a series of legal hearings in 1994, and she fled with Ashlyn 1995. Although the courts later awarded full custody to Dan Wilson, he has never seen his daughter.
On July 25th 1995, Polk County authorities issued an arrest warrant for Tara Wilson, charging her with violating the custody court order. In January 2003, at the request of the Polk County District Attorney’s Office, the FBI obtained a federal fugitive arrest warrant charging Tara Wilson with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Steele says agents believe that Tara and Ashlyn Wilson may be living somewhere in California, Montana or Canada, likely under assumed names. Members of Tara Wilson’s family continue to live in the Polk County and Marion County area.
Date of birth used: 10/2/71
Weight: 145 pounds
There is no current description of Ashlyn, however, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has provided the age-progressed photo shown above, that offers some idea of what she may look like now.
