No new leads in missing girl case

Staff report

Federal agents and Mexican authorities are continuing to search for a Fernley girl allegedly kidnapped and taken to Mexico by her mother’s roommate a week ago.

Lyon County Detective Rob Hall said no new witnesses have come forward to report anymore sightings of Fernando Aguero, 47, and Lydia Bethany-Rose Rupp, 8, in the area surrounding Tijuana, Mexico near the San Diego border.

Aguero, a convicted sex-offender, is suspected of abducting the girl while her mother was at work July 22.

Aguero shared a home with Lydia, her mother Carmen Bauer and Bauer’s 10-year-old son, Daniel.

FBI Special Agent Dave Shrom said Mexican officials are cooperating in the investigation.

“Whatever (resources) the Mexican government has at its disposal, they are using,” he said.
