NMSP initially reported Nicolai hasn’t been seen since November 5, 2021, was believed to be in danger. Authorities state that he was believed to be with his mother, Jaqueline Haymon.
According to NMSP, on Nov. 18, 2021, a district court judge in Albuquerque issued an emergency custody order that granted Nicolai’s biological father custody due to “grave concern of the well-being and safety of the child.” There was also a bench warrant issued for Jaqueline Haymon’s arrest.
According to court documents, a judge ordered Haymon three times to say where Nicolai was located but she refused. Documents say leading up to the custody hearing, she sent up to 70 letters which they describe as gibberish to the court and didn’t show up when asked.
NMSP says the pair were believed to be driving in a grey Honda Civic with a New Mexico black chile license plate that reads AMAP53. As of Thursday night, Nicolai has been located and is safe.
