GALENA, Mo. –

Four people are charged in Stone County after a 2-year-old boy was taken from his grandparents’ home in Crawford County on Tuesday.

Law enforcement officers say the grandparents have legal custody of Damian Glore, but his father kidnapped him from their home in east central Missouri and took the boy about 160 miles to southwest Missouri.

After the boy was taken, officers put out an endangered person advisory for the boy and his father.  They said his father, Devin Glore, has violent tendencies, and may have had a handgun.

Law enforcement officers looked for Damian and his father at an apartment in Branson on Wednesday, but didn’t find him. Stone County sheriff’s deputies finally found them at a rural home off Old Stone School Road.  They were with the boy’s mother and two of her relatives.

Stone County deputies say they knew the Glores were in their county by following pings from a cell phone.

Devin Glore, 24, of Bourbon, and Laina Glore, 31, of Branson, are charged with parental kidnapping.  Their bonds are set at $30,000 each.  Melissa Harter, 35, and Jose Robles, 36, both of Kimberling City, are charged with hindering prosecution because they lied about the Glores being at their home.  Their bonds are set at $15,000 each.  All four could face prison sentences up to four years if they’re convicted.

Officers returned the boy to his grandparents in Crawford County.

According to a probable cause statement used as the basis of the charge against Harter, a detective went to the home of Harter and Robles on Old Stone School Road to look for the boy at 9:20 a.m. Wednesday.

Harter denied having any knowledge about the whereabouts of Damian or his parents.  The deputy told Harter that she could be charged with a crime if she was intentionally hiding the boy and his parents, but she continued to deny having any knowledge of their location.

At 1:20 p.m., the detective went back to the home.  Harter and Robles again said the boy and his parents were not there.  Officers then searched the property, with the consent of Harter and Robles, according to the probable cause statements against them, and found the boy and his parents hiding in an old abandoned junk vehicle that was parked in the backyard of the property.
