‘Manhunt Monday’ Features Woman Wanted For Kidnapping Her Own Son

This week’s “Manhunt Monday” most wanted person is a woman wanted for allegedly kidnapping her 6-year-old son and failing to return the boy to the father who is the rightful custodial parent.

The most wanted person is Demetra Nitardy, 37, of El Paso.

On March 11, 2010, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office detectives received a complaint about a child custody dispute involving an temporary emergency order issued from the 388th Judicial District Court. Sheriff’s officials met with the Reporter / Complainant (biological father) of a 6-year-old child listed in the court order.

The reporter told authorities that in mid-December 2009, he dropped off his son, Jonathan Nitardy II, at his ex-wife’s (Demetra Nitardy) residence in west part of El Paso. Per agreement of the court order, the reporter was to pick up his son from her residence at 10 a.m. on Christmas Day 2009.

The reporter advised authorities Demetra knew of the court order which was signed on 11-20-2009 and she was fully aware that retaining or failing to turn over the minor child at scheduled time was a violation of the order. Demetra is wanted on other criminal offenses she allegedly committed while living in El Paso, according to sheriff’s officials.

Demetra has since then disappeared as she never returned her son to his school and has failed to contact the reporter since Christmas Day 2009. The current whereabouts of Demetra and Jonathan remain unknown at this time. On 3-22-10 the 388th district court has awarded full custody of the boy to his father, Jon Nitardy Sr.

Demetra has a history of abuse and neglect and is believed to have taken Jonathan out of El Paso. They may have traveled to San Antonio or Houston, Texas, Lafayette, Louisiana, or Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jonathan is biracial, he is black and white. Jonathan has a birthmark on the back of his neck and he may go by the nickname “Jonny.”

Sheriff’s officials are asking the public – if anyone has seen or has any information on the whereabouts of Demetra and Jonathan Nitardy II to please contact the Sheriff’s Office (915) 546-2280 or Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 566-TIPS (8477). Callers will remain anonymous & may be eligible for a reward if the information provided leads to the apprehension of the individuals featured.
