Update March 18, 2015 5:00 PM

Dallas Police have been actively investigating a Critical Missing case regarding Ms. Adriana “Heidi” Martinez-Trejo L/F/08-01-1986 and her son Carlos Gomez L/M/04-06-2013.  

Ms. Martinez-Trejo’s husband reported that Heidi and Carlos were last seen Saturday, March 14th around 4pm.  The couple has been separated for some time. 

A search of police reports indicated that Ms. Martinez-Trejo reported a burglary at her apartment on Friday March 13 at 10:45pm.  The narrative of the report states that two unknown Latin males had knocked on her apartment door and told her to “get out”.  That case is still open. 

Detectives found that Ms. Martinez-Trejo cell phone had been deactivated at around 8pm on Saturday, March 14, 2015. 

On Tuesday March 17, 2015, the husband provided Detectives with a note that appears to have been written by Ms. Martinez-Trejo to him that stated that by the time he was reading the note, she and Carlos would no longer be alive. This note had been hand delivered to the grandmother of Carlos by an unknown Latin male.   Detectives immediately upgraded the missing persons report to a Critical Missing offense. 

Detectives searched Ms. Martinez locked apartment after being allowed entry by apartment management.  The TV was on and there was property in the apartment but Officers found no signs of any damage inside the apartment.  Ms. Martinez-Trejo’s car was still in the parking lot but the child car seat was missing.   

On Wednesday March 18, 2015, a witness came forward who states that he had driven Ms. Martinez-Trejo and her son to Nuevo Laredo Mexico on March 14, 2015. The witness states that Ms. Martinez-Trejo stated that her mother was very ill and she needed to get to Nuevo Laredo quickly. 

The witness has been cooperative with the investigation. Detectives contacted US Homeland Security and they have provided photos and vehicle records that indicate that the witness and a woman believed to be Ms. Martinez-Trejo and a child crossed into Mexico at 5:43am on Sunday March 15, 2015. 

The witness stated he returned home and records from the border patrol indicated he crossed back into Texas from Mexico at around 11 am on the same day. The witness consented to a search of his vehicle and no evidence of foul play was found in his vehicle. 

Detectives searched financial records of Ms. Martinez-Trejo and found that she had made purchases at a Wal-mart near her apartment at about the time she and witness began their journey to Mexico. Wal-mart provided detectives with the following photos showing Ms. Martinez-Trejo entering the store with her son.

Detectives have continued to attempt to contact relatives and acquaintances of Ms. Martinez-Trejo by phone but have been unsuccessful. 

Dallas Police have contacted the Mexican Consulate for assistance. The Consulate has agreed to help and is offering us assistance. 

Based on the evidence of this investigation, it appears that Ms. Martinez-Trejo intentionally took her son to Mexico on March 15 and she does not appear to be in danger.   We will continue to attempt to contact Ms. Martinez-Trejo to assure that she and the child are safe. The case will be carried forward as a missing person’s case.
