BCSO solves decade-long custody case

Mother arrested; children taken into custody

BENTONVILLE – A more than decade-long search ended Thursday night when Showana Kissinger was arrested at a residence outside Quinton, Okla.

She and her two children disappeared on Dec. 13, 1997, during a custody dispute with her husband, David Kissinger, of Siloam Springs.

The children – Taylor Rae Kissinger and Dylan Lee Kissinger – were taken on the day their father’s parents were to pick them up for Christmas vacation.

In this case, the fact that the children were snatched before a visit with their paternal grandparents speaks volumes about the true motivation in this case. Whatever the father was alleged to have done has no bearing on what his parents would do. Therefore, the kidnapping is about making sure her ex’s family was spited, just like in so many other cases. Twelve years is a long time to be seperated, but hopefully the Kissinger children can have a relationship with their father now.

    Let’s hope that Taylor and Dylan want to re-establish a lasting a relationship with their father. They’ve been seperated from their father for far too long.

    You obviously have not researched your facts at all…..we were not taken before a visit with “the grandparents” and the state of Oklahoma had medical proof I was raped by David Kissinger and yet the state of Arkansas thought I should still have visitation with him….the BCSO did SOVLE a case either my mother contacted them through her attorney MONTHS before they arrested her…..you should really do a little more research before you assume you know everything…..we are still happily in my mother’s custody which is where we always were…she had full custody of us then as well contrary to what the media stated…this is also a matter of legal record….I thank the Lord my mother had the guts to fight for us and even to jail for us….I do not have a relationship with the man who raped me and never will.
