Tuesday, April 29, 2014: One aspect of spending your birthday as an abducted child is not spending it with both sides of your family. Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) has tried to have me completely erased out of her life and replaced with an equally winning participants in Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global) and Danny Howitt (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan).

It goes with the territory for child abductors like Adriana, to not include the other 1/2 of the family. We have seen video of left behind parents trying to spend what little time with their abducted children on or around their birthdays under the hawk-like watch of the child’s actual abductors. You see video like that and it sends chills up your spine. Then it becomes your reality and it makes your heart sink into your stomach.

We have actual video of Samantha’s birthday from a few years back when I was forced to spend Samantha’s birthday in a secluded area under the hawk-like watch of Adriana’s father and Palomeque. Adriana did not want anything to do with her own daughter’s birthday, not with me around. She was a complete no-show.

In the interest of full disclosure, I had a good relationship with Adriana’s father. He’s a good guy caught in between a bad situation when he came to visit Adriana. Deep down he knows how bat shit crazy Adriana is. It’s no coincidence he has never been back to visit her since this encounter.

Be that as it may, in the video it’s just me and Samantha, a big birthday cake, and a suitcase full of birthday gifts. Samantha was all excited. She wanted to share her excitement with everyone. That’s just how she is. She offered her grandfather and Palomeque pieces of her birthday cake. They ignored her as they sat at the next table over, continuing to watch over things. Samantha tried to share her excitement with her grandfather and Palomeque with the gifts she received for her birthday. They were not having any of that either.

On the video you can hear Adriana’s father and Palomeque talking among themselves as I sang “Happy Birthday” to Samantha. Again Samantha wanted to include them and again they were not having it. It took everything I had to keep a brave face for Samantha that day. Inside I wanted to breakdown and cry. Samantha looked confused. After all it was HER big day.

The video is very telling for many reasons. The video shows who these people really are and their true colors. If they felt like Adriana has done nothing wrong, why not join in and try to make this look completely normal for Sam’s sake? They have no idea, until now, that I even have video of this. It’s not like they were shying away from the camera’s eye. They had no idea it was there in the first place. This is who these people are.
