Fairfax County detectives are still searching for 16-year-old Lizzy Lizbeth Rivera Colindres.  Lizzy and her 5-month old baby boy haven’t been seen since January 14th.  Initially, detectives believed that the girl left her home on Rhoden Court in Springfield voluntarily, possibly with the boy’s father Jose Ivan Castillo Rivas. and her baby boy, Aiden. Now they think that Lizzy may have left out of fear of the father and they’re asking the public to help find him.

Jose Castillo Rivas is Hispanic, with a medium complexion, 18 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He is from the Springfield area.

Detectives are out canvassing the area of Rhoden Court today looking for information. They have been working with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to reach as many people as possible.
