He gives colour to our life – mother of missing Angelos desperation as police now say he has been abducted

Were continuing to make enquiries to locate a missing eight-year-old boy from Bristol who is believed to be with his father.

The mother of eight-year-old Angelo Jurado-Marmolejo reported him as missing on Saturday 2 March after his father 43-year-old Rafael Jurado-Cabello failed to return him home following a pre-arranged visit.

“We believe Rafael Jurado-Cabello may have taken Angelo abroad and we’re making further inquiries with the Spanish authorities to locate him as soon as possible.”

Angelo lives full-time with his mother in the Whitehall area of Bristol and attends a local primary school.

“Angelo is comfortable showing his emotions, happiness, sadness and can shed a tear after watching a film. He will also try to explain if he is not happy though.”

Mr Jurado-Cabello, a Spanish national, is now in breach of a court order and is wanted on suspicion of child abduction.

Share PA Mar 26th 2019 5:10AM A father is wanted on suspicion of child abduction after failing to return an eight-year-old boy to his mother following a visit, police said.

Investigating officer DI Matt Lloyd said: Our immediate priority is to locate Angelo and do all we can to ensure he is safely returned to his home in Bristol.

“We miss the morning cuddles he asks for every day. Angelo will be missing his family, his friends and his school, and we are very worried about him,” she said.

This will be an extremely unsettling experience for Angelo as hes been taken away from his family home, his primary school and his friends.

She said the family had “no information” about where Angelo may be and asked anyone with information to contact police “as soon as possible”.

We believe Mr Jurado-Cabello may have taken Angelo abroad and were making further enquiries with the Spanish authorities to locate him as soon as possible.

Angelos mother Karol Marmolejo said: We miss Angelo so much, he is our treasure. His older brother David and I are desperate to have him home – he fills our home with his incredible ideas and energy, and he gives colour to our life.

We miss the morning cuddles he asks for every day. Angelo will be missing his family, his friends and his school, and we are very worried about him.

Angelo often has a smile on his face, as he is a very lively person. He wants all the people who are next to him be having fun too. Angelo enjoys having a lot of family time – at the park, playing board games, at home, and is very sociable too – he is always busy.

“We miss the morning cuddles he asks for every day. Angelo will be missing his family, his friends and his school, and we are very worried about him,” she said.

Angelo is more aware now of his situation, where he lives and his surroundings, despite his young age. Angelo is comfortable showing his emotions, happiness, sadness and can shed a tear after watching a film. He will also try to explain if he is not happy though.

Angelo is a very active person and has endless amounts of energy. His biggest passion is football, and he will talk about it constantly. He supports both Juventus and Real Madrid, and his favourite player is Cristiano Ronaldo.

A YEAR 11 schoolboy stabbed in a violent street brawl pulled a foot-long blade from his own chest before collapsing in the road, according to witne…

He is determined to become a football player one day, he trains every week with his team, and has become a very confident player. He has extra coaching and can be seen playing football at the local park with his brother and mum several times a week.

“Unbeknownst to the mother, the father had enrolled Angelo in a school in Spain and taken him to see a psychologist,” she said.“He also lodged a criminal complaint against the mother in Spain and also began a case in the Spanish Family Court seeking orders that Angelo should live with him there.

Angelo is bi-lingual, belongs to the school football club, trains in Taekwondo and is a bit of a daredevil at heart. He collects SuperZings and trades these with his friends.

During a hearing at Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre, it emerged that Mr Jurado-Cabello had previously abducted the boy.Mr Jurado-Cabello, a Spanish national, failed to return Angelo home after a visit during the school half-term holiday in February 2017.Angelo with his mother (Family handout/PA)

We have no information about where he may be, or how he is, and wed ask anyone with information to call the police as soon as possible.

Angelo’s mother, Karol Marmolejo, applied to Bristol Family Court on February 27 that year – with Mr Jurado-Cabello insisting she had consented to her son moving to Spain.

Angelo is described as white, aged eight, with short wavy dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, 4ft 4ins and last seen wearing a zip-up fleece, dark trousers, red training shoes and carrying a blue rucksack.

Angelo Jurado-Marmolejo has not been seen since he was collected by his father, Rafael Jurado-Cabello, on the morning of March 2.
