Mother, children reunited after two years

Story here

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Three children from Indiana are reunited with their mother after missing for more than 2-1/2 years.

“It is the most wonderful thing that I could ever imagine,” said Leeanna Dinkens, the children’s mother.

Dinkens talked to 24 Hour News 8 over the phone Saturday morning after reuniting with her children Sierra, Jasmine and Jaden.

I was sent this article about Jaden and Jasmine Cummins and Sierra Emberton. They were located in Mexico, apparently, which is where they were expected to be. Jaden and Jasmine apparently no longer speak English. Their mother has also re-married. The conditions they were living in were typical of family abductions – they slept on cots or on cement floors and they didn’t know what a bathtub was. I wish them and their mother the best in reuniting.

Stephen Palacios found safe

I have just been sent an article that indicates Stephen Palacios has been found safe and that he in fact told his abducting father to turn himself in. He apparently saw a story about his abduction. That sort of behavior from a parentally kidnapped child is unusual in the extreme, but it is still welcome news. (Some people in the comments of the article are defending the father, another unusual occurance: I’m stunned.) I have resolved his case and modified the anniversary post so there are no dead links. The new case on the site is that of Lynze Anderson.
