At the time the nine-year-old girl, identified as Diana Alvarez, disappeared, Guerrero-Torres was living at the same house where the girl lived. He lived at the family’s mobile home from September 2015 to May 2016 but kicked him out after they suspected he had an inappropriate relationship with the girl.

Accordingly, Guerrero-Torres made inappropriate comments like Alvarez was growing into a beautiful woman. He already fled when police were called to check on him. They tracked Guerrero-Torres’ phone and located it in the Daytona each area. They saw a man who was not the then-suspect and the man claimed he found the phone in Orlando. Police seized the phone and found eight pornographic images of the nine-year-old.

Eventually, Guerrero-Torres was located by authorities and when he was questioned, he admitted to having a sexual relationship with the girl and he took photos of her. The convict claimed he had intercourse with the girl at least once a week and it happened the entire time he lived with the girl and her family.

The family of Alvarez now believes she is either dead or was trafficked to be part of an international sex ring.
