UNION COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-They are one of FBI’s most wanted couples.
Janet and Ramon Barreto fled Union County, after being charged with the manslaughter of their two year old adopted daughter.
With multiple counts of child abuse and neglect for their other adopted children, Janet and Ramon Baretto have captured national and local attention since running in 2008.
The duo was recently spotted near Bakersfield, California.
Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards says it renews hope that the Barettos will be brought to justice.
“About three weeks ago or maybe two weeks ago the Marshal got another tip and some more information around Bakersfield, California area. The locals were called and before they could get out there, they had already left. I know The Marshal service is going to try to get them bumped up to the top 15 on the Marshal’s Service Most Wanted List and that will give more man power and bring more attention to the case,” says Jimmy Edwards.
