Pueblo, Co. - Luis Novelo-Rojas, 35, father of missing/endangered 2-month-old Elsy Ardolino, was arrested overnight in Denver. Elsy and her mother, Ashley Ardolino, 39, have not been located. Multiple law enforcement agencies continue to search for the infant who is considered endangered. Elsy was living with a family member in Pueblo West for the past month after her mother made statements to hurt the baby and told the family member to care for the infant. Ashley Ardolino and Novelo-Rojas both were wanted on multiple warrants unrelated to this incident.
On Tuesday night, Elsy’s parents, Ashley Ardolino and Novelo-Rojas visited the child in Pueblo West when they got into an argument and took the child. The vehicle they were traveling in, a forest green GMC Yukon, was found abandoned Wednesday afternoon in Aurora. Authorities believe Ashley Ardolino is still in the Denver metro area.
