Leslie Delbecq and her mother, Jeanine De Riddere (66), are wanted for their involvement in the kidnapping of Leslie Delbecq's daughter, Gabrielle Dahm, from Broward County, Florida, in 2010. 

On 08/02/2010, Leslie Delbecq and Jeanine De Riddere arranged for Gabrielle to be taken from Florida. Gabrielle was reported to have arrived in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on 08/04/2010. All of their tickets to Abu Dhabi were reported in open source information as being purchased through an airline employee  (Philippe Delbecq, who was working as a pilot for the United Arab Emirates at the time). 

On 08/04/2010, Leslie Delbecq failed to return Gabrielle to her father, Christopher Dahm per a court order. Gabrielle is believed to have been moved to Abu Dhabi in violation of the court's order. The courts order had denied Leslie Delbecq's request to
relocate to Abu Dhabi with Gabrielle. Gabrielle was ordered to remain in the United States.

On 06/21/2011, Leslie Delbecq and Jeanine De Riddere were indicted for international parental kidnapping by a Federal Grand Jury for the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida. Federal warrants were issued for their arrests.

Leslie Delbecq fled to Dubai with the help of her mother, Jeanine De Riddere, and her father, Philippe Delbecq, who was working as a pilot for the United Arab Emirates. All three are wanted by the FBI for international parental kidnapping. (FBI)
