Missing Benjamin Everett
Details of Disappearance Benjamin was abducted by his father, Manuel Benitez (a former actor also known by his stage name, Mark Everett), from Hawthorne, California on June 21, 2004, after Benitez allegedly killed the child's mother. In December 2008, Benitez took his son hostage and barricaded himself inside a Chinese restaurant in El Monte, California.
After a two-hour standoff, Benitez was shot and killed by police. Benjamin, who is now 7 years old, was shot in the leg and was hospitalized, but authorities stated his injuries were not life-threatening. He said he and his father had been living in hotels and he hadn't been attending school at all.
Investigators are still searching for Benjamin's paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Velasco, who is believed to have aided her son in his flight from the law.
