Father reunited with his abducted daughter

Father reunited with daughter after mother leaves country with her

SAN ANTONIO — A Christmas miracle for a father who has been searching for his daughter for nearly two years. Nine-year-old Camille Kaufman, taken by her mother in 2008 in Boerne, has been found. She is finally back home with her father in their new home in Houston.

The search for her was a very long, grueling and emotional one. It took Galen and investigators all the way down to the jungles of Costa Rica. After months of investigating, Galen and detectives found Camille and her mother, Lynanne Foster, hiding out with her boyfriend, Lance Brauer, and his family.

This link was provided in a previous post about Camille. Both this and some articles written before Camille was found indicate that her mother was behaving strangely before her abduction and was worried about such things as “chips implanted in children.” That is a typical psychotic delusion, and while psychosis is not always present in abductors, some could very well have that affliction. I suspected from the first write-up I did of the case there was more to it than I knew; most parents who have a joint custody agreement that allows for essentially equal time and has gone on for several years, as Camille’s mother and father had, do not suddenly abduct their children. (And of course a lot of the comments seem to imply Mom did it for a good reason, despite the fact that her mother’s complaints were about the United States and not her ex-husband.) Apparently her mother remains in Costa Rica; she will be arrested if she leaves the country. I do hope that she does that, and not merely out of a desire for punishment; children need both parents in their lives if they are fit.

    I’ve just discovered this story on the web – searching Google for the “Brauer” name…
    Based on the details I’ve read, this story does not surprise me in the least… Knowing the Brauers as I once did, it was kinda very predictable to me that something like this would happen.
