Leadville woman pleads for help in finding daughter questioned in Ireland
The Denver Post
The Leadville woman questioned in Ireland about a jihad assassination plot was released Saturday, but her mother had heard nothing from her as of Sunday evening.
Christine Mott is pleading for help from government agencies or nonprofit groups to help find her daughter, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 31; and grandson, Christian Carreon, 6.
“We’re not worried about my daughter hurting him,” Mott said Sunday. “We’re worried about the other people they’re with hurting him or hurting my daughter.”
Mott said that the last time she saw Christian he was crying and clinging to her before her daughter loaded him into her car for a trip to Denver, supposedly to visit a friend, on Sept. 11.
Paulin-Ramirez left her car at Denver International Airport and flew to New York City.
The FBI visited the family’s Leadville home after Mott called authorities Sept. 15 to say she was worried about Paulin-Ramirez’s interest in Islam, her extremist views and online activities. Mott has said her daughter’s conversion to Islam last year was quick, and she had never before practiced a particular faith. She spent hours a day visiting Muslim websites and Internet chat rooms.
