Earlier Pedro Castillo denounced a "media show" against him and his family.
"At this moment, within his age, his courage and bravery is at the Prosecutor's Office to appear and turn himself in to the prosecutor," said José Dionisio, Paredes' lawyer to Radio Programas del Perú.
However, his lawyer did not give details as to why she was not found by the country's authorities, who entered the Government Palace on Wednesday.
Yenifer is known in Peru as "Pedro Castillo's adopted daughter" since she was raised by the presidential couple just like their other children and she made her appearance in the presidential campaign.
She studied Administration at the National University of Cajamarca and now seems to be one of the crucial points to talk about the scandals surrounding President Castillo. He is accused of being the front man of a corruption network headed by the president himself.
The investigation of a public report by "America Television" Paredes informed members of a community in the district of Chota, Cajamarca, in the northwest of Peru, that she had to census them in order to build a sanitation project. But, she did not have a government position, so she is accused of influence peddling.
"It is very gratifying for me and for my colleagues to be with you today (...) The profile of your project has already been approved. So I have come today to get the necessary data to carry and approve the project I need," Paredes said in the recording. He was wearing a vest of the company JJM Espino Ingeniería y Construcción SA, a company that in October 2021 won a contract with the State for more than three million soles (about seven thousand dollars).
