Circumstances: They were initially abducted by their non-custodial mother, Ruby Leo. At the time the children were wards of the state; their parents both have extensive criminal histories. Ruby and their father, Anthony Marks would alternate caring for the children when the other one was in prison. Photos of both and vital statistics for Marks are posted below. She was located in 2007 and convicted and jailed for abducting her children, but the whereabouts of the children remain unknown. They may be with their father in the Kansas City area, or may be with other relatives out of state. Marks is not currently wanted for abduction but is wanted on several other outstanding warrants.
