LAS VEGAS – A Filipino woman is currently booked at the Clark County Detention Center in Nevada for allegedly kidnapping her own four-year old daughter.

Eva Villamor, 38, lost a custody case battle for her daughter, Teresa Gobeaux, against ex-husband Troy Gobeaux.

Gobeaux now lives in Ohio.

Authorities said the four-year-old girl had been missing since November, and the father feared that Villamor brought their daughter to the Philippines.

It turned out that Villamor was working as a caregiver in Las Vegas. She was arrested by US marshalls last Feb. 27.

The four-year-old has since been returned to her father in Ohio.

Villamor is being held in jail, pending an extradition hearing Thursday at the Las Vegas justice court.
