Hidoko's fate was left up in the air on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 9 Episode 24 when she opted to go to Mexico on her own to find the child before it was too late. 

If you watch NCIS: Los Angeles online, you know that Hidoko immediately struck a chord with the team and viewers when she first showed up in 2017.

Thank you all for the love and support. It means the world to me. I'm gonna miss her so much.💔
