2 Fugitives & A Baby
Mom and Boyfriend Allegedly Abduct 2 Year Old Daughter

LSFTF LogoSan Antonio, TX Anna Marie Rezendes, 27, and Donald Willis, 56, were arrested this afternoon by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio without incident. An arrest warrant was sought by the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office in Oshkosh, WI, where it is alleged that Rezendes abducted her 2 year old daughter, Oceana Northup, and committed interference with child custody. Willis had an arrest warrant for allegedly violating the conditions of his probation. Rezendes and her ex-boyfriend, Dylan Northup, had joint parental custody of Oceana, which was ordered by the court.

This afternoon, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was contacted by the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office from Oshkosh, WI, for assistance in locating and apprehending Rezendes and Willis. Task force officers determined that Rezendes and Willis were hiding out at a residence in the 4700 block of Hidden Creek. Task force officers initiated surveillance and later observed Rezendes and Willis going for a walk with Oceana. Rezendes and Willis were approached by task force officers and immediately taken into custody. Oceana was later released to the custody of Child Protective Services.

Rezendes and Willis are currently being held in the Bexar County Jail without bond.

On August 17, 2012, Rezendes allegedly abducted her 2 year old daughter Oceana. It is also alleged that Willis was present during the abduction. The abduction was immediately reported to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Rezendes and Willis, along with Oceana traveled from Oshkosh, WI, to San Antonio, TX with hopes of eluding law enforcement.

Child Protective Services will later reunite Oceana with her father.

Robert R. Almonte United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “I want to sincerely thank the members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force for quickly apprehending 2 known fugitives and making it possible for an endangered child to return home.”
