Missing Endangered Juvenile:
Yesmary Arista Burgos
(8 months old)
at 5:35 p.m.
Last Known Location: 3606 Compson Circle,Ruskin
HCSO Detectives are attempting to locate Yesmary Arista Burgos, (DOB 1/30/18
) who is listed as missing/endangered and was last seen with her father Antonio Arista Leguisamo (DOB 4/20/1964
, Hispanic/Male) on October 5th
around 5:30. Leguisamo is legally entitled to custody of the baby but indicated that he would travel to reunite Yesmary with her mother in Pennsylvania which is against a court order. There is no concern that Leguisamo will harm the child. Additionally, there is no evidence that the pair have left the area at this
time other than Leguisamo's statement.
The baby was removed from her mother due to a mental health episode which created a concern for the baby's safety. The potential for the reunification elevated this matter to an endangered status due to the mother's history with the child and the inability to locate her. Anyone with any information in reference to Burgos' whereabouts is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200.
