The FBI's Newark Field Office is assisting the Paterson Police Department and the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office in New Jersey with their search for Diego Alfonso De Leon Mejia and an unknown male suspect with the aliases of "Pineapple" or "Pina".

Thoughts? As of today, June 21, 2019, Diego De Leon Mejia and the unidentified accomplice are still listed as "at large/wanted" on the FBI's Law Enforcement Assistance Page. It appears they were added to the site yesterday. The Law Enforcement Assistance section appears to be a resource for the FBI to publicize manhunts where there is no federal UFAP warrant, just a state arrest warrant.
Adding these two to the site was important because I didn't see any news articles on this case. Even better if we can get some more additions from the Newark FBI office, like the huge amount of Los Angeles bureau cases from earlier this year.
