Her mother, Deana Hebert has been working with every level of authority, including Harris County officials, the US State Department, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the FBI and Crime Stoppers in Houston in an attempt to find her daughter. Hebert contacted Rep. Olson's office shortly after he was elected for additional assistance.
"Five minutes is too long for a mother to go without knowing the whereabouts of her child. Fifteen years is unbearable," Rep. Pete Olson said. "The communities both in the US and Mexico can help law enforcement with this case. I implore the good people of Texas and Mexico to come forward with any information. I'm pleased that the FBI is increasing their reward for information and appreciate the time and effort they are giving to this tragedy. Crime Stoppers has also committed resources and time to help this family and it will take all of these efforts and more to ensure this girl knows she is a US citizen with a mother who loves her."
Timeline of the Bianca Lozano abduction:
Bianca, now 17, has a light-brown, semi-oval-shaped birthmark on her right shoulder blade. At the time of her disappearance she had pierced ears.
"Bianca Lozano deserves to know that she has a mother in Houston who loves her very much. I am counting on the good nature of all Americans to think carefully if you have seen this girl or her father and let authorities or my office know if you have any information about Bianca's whereabouts," Olson concluded.
