ICE places illegal immigration hold on Minneapolis kidnapping suspect

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed an immigration hold on Isabel Diaz-Castillo following her arrest in the abduction of an 8-month-old Minneapolis boy Wednesday.

An AMBER Alert was triggered Wednesday afternoon when Minneapolis police identified Castillo as the suspect in the kidnapping of Carlos Orozco from his mother's apartment on the 2100 block of Portland Ave. S.

It wasn't long before an anonymous tip led police to a home where Castillo's relatives live. Officers found the red Kia Sportage listed in the AMBER Alert parked out front.

"The suspect bailed from the vehicle, ran inside the home, and the officers found the child in the basement of the home," said Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau.

Investigators said Castillo she had recently met Carlos's mother, Vicky, and had been paying an inordinate amount of attention to the boy before the abduction.

The boy was reunited with his mother Wednesday evening and is believed to be in good health.
