    Intense search underway for missing toddler (Kytana Ancog, 18m) last seen 2 weeks ago

    https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2021/0...th-her-father/

    HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - An intense police search is underway for a missing 18-month-old who was last seen two weeks ago, when she was dropped off to her father.

    Police identified the child as Kytana Ancog.

    'Help me look for my baby. She means the world to me. I love her so much,' said Kytana's mother Ashley Ancog.

    Kytana was dropped off Jan. 31 to her father, Travis Rodrigues, at his Kaulainahee Place address in Aiea.

    'She dropped the baby off with him and never got her back,' said Lisa Mora, Kytana's grandmother. 'I just want the public treat it as if it were their child or their grandchild.'

    'Maybe you don't necessarily know where they are today, but let's say you saw them a couple days ago, maybe even a week ago, where was the last time you saw them and what time' Give us any kind of information. That would be very beneficial to the investigation,' said Sgt. Chris Kim, Honolulu CrimeStoppers Coordinator.

    Rodrigues is a convicted felon with a long criminal history.

    He served time in both federal prison and the Oahu Community Correctional Center.

    In 2004, he was arrested for drug and firearms violations. Law enforcement said he was known to bring machine guns to drug deals.

    Ahead of his sentencing in 2006, he sent a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Susan Mollway.

    'I have been addicted to ice for about six years,' he wrote. 'I do admit that I have a problem and I am asking for help.' The letter was signed Travis Heffelinger, which police say is one of his aliases.

    Rodrigues spent about a decade in prison. In 2016, Hawaii News Now cameras were there when he was arrested by deputy U.S. Marshals and Honolulu police for violating probation.

    Two years later, he was one of CrimeStoppers most wanted men for a robbery in which police said he held up two people during a drug deal.

    That case was dismissed by Circuit Court Judge Rowena Somerville, despite objections from prosecutors who asked that the case be delayed because a witness had moved to Las Vegas.

    Rodrigues is known to frequent the Aiea, Pearl City, Kalihi and Waipahu areas.

    Kytana is described as weighing about 40 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

    Anyone who sees Kytana is asked to call 911 or CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.

    Family friend says missing toddler was ‘all bruised up’ before disappearance

    https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2021/0...disappearance/

    HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are still searching for the body of 18-month-old Kytana Ancog.

    Kytana was last seen alive on January 31st. That’s when Elena Ganotise said her friend Ashley Ancog brought her daughter Kytana to her home.

    “The last time I seen Kytana was when Ashley came out of the hospital. My son picked them up. They both came to my house,” Ganotise said.

    Ganotise said Kytana appeared to be injured.

    “She was all bruised up,” said Ganotise. “It was really bad. It was swollen. Her face was swollen … her head was swollen. She had unusual bruising on top her cheek.”

    Ganotise said Kytana stayed with other friends while Ashley was in the hospital and she advised Ashley to take Kytana to see a doctor.

    “I just told her go take her to the hospital. Check her out,” Ganotise said.

    According to Honolulu police, the toddler was dropped off to her father Travis Rodrigues, 40, that day.

    Rodrigues is now charged with murder.

    Rodrigues friend Scott Carter, 48, is charged with first-degree hindering prosecution. Authorities say Carter helped hide key evidence in the case.

    The two suspects have extensive criminal records.

    Defense attorney Myles Breiner says it still may be a tough case to prove.

    “The old general principal is no corpus, no crime. But the fact remains that they could prove the case circumstantially, certainly if someone has made any incriminating statements,” said Breiner.

    If you have more information that can help police, call Crime Stoppers at 955-8300.

    Father of missing toddler charged for second-degree murder; bail set at $2M

    https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2021/0...-child-so-far/

    HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The father of a toddler who has been missing for two weeks was charged Monday with second-degree murder in connection with her disappearance.

    Bail for 40-year-old Travis Rodrigues has been set at $2 million.

    There still has been no sign of the child and authorities have not divulged any circumstances of the crime.

    “On behalf of the Mora and Ancog family we are very grateful to hear that charges were filed today against Mr. Rodrigues and Mr. Carter and that we feel that their bail amounts (are) adequate,” family spokesperson Shawna Delos Santos said in a written statement Monday night.

    “Since Kytana has not yet been located the family is still asking for the public’s help in bringing her home. If anyone has any information at all please call HPD.”

    Legal experts said the case is likely based on statements that Rodrigues made to his relatives about 18-month-old Kytana Ancog’s whereabouts.

    “Given what’s happened already in the case, if there were some admissions of responsibility or some type of explanation to a family member justifying what happened, that’s certainly more than enough to charge the case,” said defense attorney Myles Breiner.

    “He was responsible for the child’s wellbeing and the child has disappeared.”

    Authorities nabbed Rodrigues on Saturday in Honokai Hale and took him in for questioning in connection to the disappearance of his daughter, baby Kytana. By Saturday afternoon, HPD announced he was arrested, suspected of murdering the girl.

    Police have also arrested and charged a second suspect — 48-year-old Scott M. Carter — for first-degree hindering prosecution. His bail has been set at $1 million.

    Kytana was last seen Jan. 31 when her mother, Ashley Ancog, dropped her off at Rodrigues’ Aiea home.

    On Friday night, police and K9 units searched that home along Kaulainahe’e Place.

    Loved ones have been frantic in searching for the missing toddler, asking for any sign that may lead to her location. Some have said they feared the worst.

    HNN reached out to Ancog’s relatives, but they had no immediate comment. Leroy Rodrigues Sr., Rodrigues’ grandfather and head of Island-Wide Mortuary Services, also declined comment.

    Rodrigues is a convicted felon with a long criminal history involving offenses for drugs and firearms.

    CrimeStoppers Honolulu said the reason a Maile Amber Alert was not issued for this case is because early on, there was no indication the toddler was abducted and facing immediate danger.

    Anyone with information on the case should call 955-8300. You may remain anonymous.

    I've been following this the last few days. I read earlier that he said he hit her and she was unconscious and unresponsive. This makes me sad, she was loved and happy and I don't know why the father had anything to do with her if he couldn't deal with her.

    Father told police he violently shook missing toddler, arranged to dispose of her body

    The father of a toddler who has been missing for weeks told police he beat and shook the child until she “appeared lifeless” — just days after she had been dropped off to him — and arranged with a friend to dispose of her body after placing it in a duffel bag.

    The troubling statements were contained in new court documents in which a witness also alleges that 40-year-old Travis Rodrigues, now charged with second-degree murder, was high on methamphetamine at the time of his daughter’s death on or around Feb. 4 and may have given the drug to his child.

    According to the court documents released Tuesday, the witness reported seeing Rodrigues slapping, kicking and swearing at the toddler, 18-month-old Kytana Ancog.

    The attack left the child bruised and bleeding, but Rodrigues allegedly told the witness that the blood was chocolate and that she had fallen in the shower. The witness also told police the father tried to give the child a meth pipe and said, “That’s what she like!”

    The witness left the home and returned the next day to see the child was “dangling as if lifeless” and that the father “was smoking methamphetamine and looked high.”

    In his statements to police, Rodrigues admitted to hitting and squeezing the girl until she was lifeless. He believed she was dead but did not call police, the documents say.

    Instead, he confessed to wrapping the child’s body in a bed sheet and placing it in a duffel.

    The father then allegedly met with another acquaintance, 48-year-old Scott M. Carter, who agreed to give Rodrigues a ride to an acquaintance’s house with the girl’s body still in the car, police said.

    Rodrigues told police he remained at the house while Carter drove off.

    Before leaving Carter allegedly told Rodrigues about the body, “don’t worry about it, I’ll take care of it.”

    Who would breed with this degenerate? And leave a child alone with him?

    I will never understand people that give illegal drugs to kids.

    I'm confused by the Elena Ganotise story.
    A bunch of ppl knew the poor baby was injured but did nothing? Including the mother?
    Why isn't the mother charged?

    Did she drop him off because of a court order? I highly doubt a judge would have approved of that (though I have seen some crazy shit).
