America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back' Captures Fugitive Porn Star and Sister

[via press release from FOX]

"AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK" CAPTURES FUGITIVE PORN STAR AND SISTER

Two Children Also Safely Recovered

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK has led to the capture of two fugitives and the recovery of two children � all within 24 hours of a broadcast. The arrest of porn star Marissa Pomarico (capture #815) and her sister, Kimberly Alvarado (capture #816), as well as the recovery of Alvarado's children, Justin Scaglione (recovery #40) and Lexie Fennell (recovery #41), were a direct result of AMW viewer tips.

When AMW aired the kidnapping case of Alvarado and Pomarico Saturday, Nov. 20, the hotline lit up with calls from dozens of tipsters, many of whom work in the porn industry. A quick search of the Internet proved the tips were on target. Meanwhile, another tipster called the FBI in Las Vegas and informed agents where Pomarico, Alvarado and the two children could be found. However, when they arrived at the residence, the two fugitives and two children were already gone.

Once Pomarico learned she had been profiled on AMW, she surrendered to police in Los Angeles at 2:00 AM PT on Sunday, Nov. 21. She had been in California for a week shooting another movie and was encouraged to turn herself in by coworkers and friends.

Yet authorities were still concerned about the whereabouts of Alvarado and her two children. They learned that Alvarado had fled Las Vegas with the children shortly after her profile aired on AMW. Certain she was heading toward California, agents put out a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for Alvarado, her children and the Dodge Durango she was driving. By 11:30 AM PT on Sunday, Nov. 21, police in San Bernardino, CA, spotted the vehicle and were able to arrest Alvarado without incident. The children were quickly placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

Alvarado and Pomarico were wanted by the NYPD for interference with child custody. Alvarado lost custody of Justin and Lexie after Child Welfare Services charged her with neglect when a burn on her infant's arm went untreated. They placed the children in a foster home. However, on May 16, Alvarado and Pomarico allegedly kidnapped the two children and fled.

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK, now in its 18th season, airs Saturdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. AMERICA'S MOST WANTED is produced by STF Productions, Inc. Lance Heflin is executive producer.
