    Details of Disappearance

    Victoria was last seen in Fort Lee, New Jersey on January 12, 2005. She has never been heard from again. Her father, Peter W. Innes, is an American citizen and her mother, Maria Jose Carrascosa, is a citizen of Spain who had lived in the United States since 1993. A photograph of Maria is posted below this case summary. Victoria was born and raised in New Jersey and, after her parents' divorce, the custody agreement prohibited her removal from that state. Maria apparently abducted her and took her to Valencia, Spain, in violation of the court order.

    Peter offered to compromise with Carrascosa and let Victoria have her primary residence in Spain and visitation with her father in New Jersey. Carrascosa refused the offer, however, and accused Peter of abusing her and Victoria. She was charged with custodial interference and kidnapping after the child's abduction. In November 2009, Carrascosa was convicted of eight courts of criminal interference with custody and one count of contempt of court. The judge sentenced her to 14 years in prison in December, but said if Victoria was returned to the United States, Maria would not have to serve any time.

    Victoria is believed to be living with Maria's parents, Jose and Juana Maria Carrascosa, in Spain. Peter has legal custody of his daughter in New Jersey and has petitioned the Spanish government to return her, but without success so far; in fact, the Spanish courts have ordered Victoria to remain in Spain until her eighteenth birthday. She hasn't seen either of her parents since 2005. Victoria remains classified as a missing child and her case is unsolved.
