Police say 42-year-old Latoya Lyerly had a visitation with her daughter at a homeless shelter in McKeesport on Sunday. A family member dropped the girl off at the shelter in the morning, with the understanding the girl had to be returned by 2 p.m.

The family member said that Lyerly did not return to the child until 8 p.m. At that point, according to the criminal complaint, Lyerly asked the family member if she could stay with her, but the family member said, “No.”

However, the family member did agree to drive her to North Homewood Avenue. The complaint says when they were stopped at an intersection, Lyerly grabbed her daughter and started running down Monticello Street.

Eventually, a police officer stopped Lyerly at the intersection of Frankstown Avenue and Sterrett Street. At that point, police say Lyerly was yelling at her daughte to “run.” Her daughter started running, but was caught a short time later by officers.

The 5 year old girl was not harmed. She was returned to her foster family around 2:00 this morning.

Latoya Lyerly is in the Allegheny County Jail facing charges of interference with custody of children and endangering the welfare of children.

Kelly Rutherford Refuses To Return Kids To Daniel Giersch In Monaco Amid Custody Battle


August 10, 2015

Despite a recent ruling, Kelly Rutherford is refusing to send her children back to Monaco to live with their father and her ex-husband, German businessman Daniel Giersch.

Kelly Rutherford Children

Kelly Rutherford has refused to return her children to live with their father in Monaco. The “Gossip Girl” actress is in a battle with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch over the custody of their 8-year-old son Hermes and 6-year-old daughter Helena, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The kids were ordered to live with their father in Monaco three years ago. Rutherford recently won the legal right to take her children back to the U.S. for the summer, provided that the kids are returned to the father in Monaco at the end of the appointed stay.

“These past three years waiting for my children to come home have been very difficult. My children were forced to leave the United States in 2012 when they were only 2 and 5 years old,” Rutherford, 46, said. “In May, a judge in California gave me sole custody and brought them home. I am immensely grateful and overjoyed to have them back. Since May, however, the court proceedings have been confusing.”

“My ex-husband recently filed for sole custody in Monaco after causing my children to be declared ‘habitual residents’ there, even though he agreed with California in 2012 that the children’s time in France and Monaco would be temporary, and that the children would retain exclusive citizenship and residency in the United States,” she added, US Weekly reported. “I trusted my ex-husband’s agreement, and cannot now send them away in light of the legal actions taken in Monaco in violation of that agreement by my ex-husband.”

Rutherford argued that since 2 U.S. courts, one in New York and another in California, have said they do not have jurisdiction in her custody battle, it means that no state in the U.S. currently requires her to send her kids away. “Hence, I have decided that I cannot lawfully send my children away from the United States to live in a foreign country, she said, according to People.

Rutherford and Giersch split in 2010 after four years of marriage and have been battling for custody ever since.

UK – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to within 10 km of the border with Syria.

The FCO advise against all but essential travel to:

the remaining areas of Sirnak, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis and Hatay provinces
Siirt, Tunceli and Hakkari provinces.

-Vi advarer mot å reise til Tyrkia om du absolutt ikke er nødt. Forhøyet terrorfare.

Tunisia:

UK – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to:

  • the Chaambi Mountain National Park area
  • the Tunisia-Algeria border crossing points at Ghardimaou, Hazoua and Sakiet Sidi Youssef
  • the militarized zone south of, but not including, the towns of El Borma and Dhehiba

IS Terror Attacks Tunisia Turkey Danger

US:

The U.S. Embassy recommends that U.S. citizens in Tunisia maintain a high level of vigilance, as terrorism remains a significant concern.

U.S. citizens should exercise caution when frequenting public venues that are visited by large numbers of foreigners, such as hotels, shopping centers, tourist sites and restaurants. Two recent attacks targeted foreign tourists: March 18, 2015, at the Bardo Museum in Tunis; and June 26, 2015 near Sousse at the Riu Imperial Marhaba and Riu Bellevue Park hotels.  The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for both attacks.  U.S. citizens should also be alert to the possibility of kidnapping.

Terrorist organizations have also targeted Tunisian security forces and government installations.  The Tunisian government officially designated the group Ansar As-Sharia in Tunisia (AAS-T), a group with known anti-U.S. and anti-Western sentiments, as a terrorist organization on August 27, 2013.  The Tunisian government continues security force operations against AAS-T, ISIL and al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).  The Tunisian President declared a state of emergency throughout the country on July 4, 2015, giving the Tunisian government greater powers to control public order.

NO- Følgende reiseråd er nå utstedt for Tunisia: Utenriksdepartementet fraråder alle reiser til Tunisia som ikke er nødvendige. Norske borgere som planlegger reise til eller opphold i Tunisia oppfordres til å holde seg oppdatert på ambassaden i Alger sin hjemmeside samt registrere sin reise på e-post til s-kons@mfa.no (Seksjon for konsulære saker og utlendingsfeltet i Utenriksdepartementet.)

Actress Kelly Rutherford, who played Lily van der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl,” has been granted temporary sole custody of her two children in a protracted dispute that sparked an online petition.

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 17.56.28

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Juhas ruled that son Hermes, 8, and daughter Helena, 5, be brought back to the United States from Monaco, where they have been living with their father, Daniel Giersch.

“We are pleased that the Los Angeles Superior Court acted swiftly on Friday, May 22nd to confirm its continuing jurisdiction over the custody matter and the parties’ two children,” Rutherford’s attorney, David Glass, said in an email. “We remain hopeful that Mr. Giersch, after reviewing the Orders, will cooperate fully and assist us in peacefully transferring the children to Kelly’s custody.”

The couple married in August 2006, separated in December 2008 and was divorced in July 2010.

According to Rutherford’s attorneys, she recently traveled to see her children in France but was denied access by Giersch at this last minute.

He claimed she was refusing to turn over the children’s passports. Rutherford argued that she was willing to have a mutually agreed party hold them but did not want to turn the documents over to a designee of Giersch’s choice.

The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for June 15.

Christmas holiday is the high season for International Parental Child Abduction.


December 1 , 2013 repost

ABP World Group Ltd.

Every year, during or after the Christmas holiday, ABP World Group are contacted by frantic parents who have had their child or children abducted while on holiday. ABP World Group provides advice on what to do if your children are abducted.

child-with-Christmas-pres-001

Very often there is a parent who has had children with someone of foreign origin and has allowed a holiday trip to that parent’s homeland. But it also happens that parents abduct the children when on holiday abroad as visitation sabotage.

Sometimes the abduction happens as quick as a lightning bolt and when the other parent returns home, the house is empty. All these forms are defined as international child abduction, and have a maximum penalty up to 3 years in prison.

Many parents ask us for advice on how to prevent one parent from taking the child abroad on holiday. However, this is very difficult to prevent when the courts in many countries often do not take parental concerns seriously.

child-christmas-cute

Child abductors are not penalized in their homeland, since The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction is only a vehicle for the return of children and does not deal with punishment.

As few as 3 out of 10 children abducted return.

What should you do if your child is abducted?

  • If you have evidence that the child has been abducted or held back after vacation, immediately contact a lawyer who has expertise in international child abduction.

•You can also get guidance by contacting ABP World Group.
•You must report the situation to both the police and the Ministry of Justice. (Ministry responsible for any claim for return under the Hague Convention).
•Time is of utmost importance, so you must work fast and focused. It is best if the police have initiated a quick inquiry before the abductor can leave the country with the child/children.
•It is also important to act quickly in terms of The Hague Convention.

Which parent abducts children?

Sociopath is an American term which is very close to what we define as antisocial personality disorder. These parents lack conscience, guilt and remorse, they are aggressive and have little respect for the norms, laws and regulations.

The U.S. study emphasizes sociopaths or antisocial personality disorder, but also parents with narcissistic, paranoid and borderline personality disorder are high risk for child abduction and visitation sabotage.

November 1 , 2014

Source: wfmz.com

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The search for missing nine-year-old Billy Hanson of Hazleton ended happily Thursday after local authorities in Niue located him safe on the island country in the South Pacific Ocean.
Billy’s family has been notified and authorities are now working to reunite Billy with his mother, according to spokesmen for the FBI in Philadelphia. The FBI and the Seattle Police Department Major Crimes Task Force worked with local, state, federal, and international partners to locate Billy, who was last seen with his father, Jeffrey Ford Hanson, in Seattle, WA. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Billy’s father on September 12 in U.S. District Court, after he was charged with international parental kidnapping.

Jeffrey Hanson is in the custody of Niue authorities. The FBI and the Seattle Police Department Major Crimes Task Force are working with the U.S. Attorney’s Office on the extradition process. Once that is complete, federal agents will bring him back to the United States. The joint investigation combined the resources of the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Seattle Police, Port of Seattle Police Department, U.S. Coast Guard and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Parental Abduction: U.S. man faces up to 36 years in prison for abduction that ended in Brandon

Harsh sentence prompts questions about Kevin Maryk’s 4 year sentence for kidnapping his children

li-montyturner

A Colorado man who abducted his son from his estranged wife’s home and drove to Brandon, Man. is facing 36 years behind bars.

According to media reports out of Colorado, Monty Turner and his lawyers struck a deal in the Boulder County Justice Center on Wednesday.

​​Turner, 52, was set to stand trial on 16 criminal counts for taking his then-three-year-old son, Luke, on May 25, 2013.

Instead, he pleaded guilty to four charges: second-degree kidnapping, felony menacing, use of a stun gun and violation of custody. The sentencing hearing will be held next month.

​In May 2013, Turner assaulted his ex-wife with pepper spray and a stun gun, then took Luke and drove 1,500 kilometres from  Longmont, Colo. to the western Manitoba city.

He was arrested at a Brandon motel shortly after checking in. Luke was not hurt and was returned to his mother.

Turner’s father, Ronald, was convicted in April for helping to plan and orchestrate the kidnapping. In June, a U.S. judge sentenced him to 27 years behind bars.

It’s not known yet exacty how many years Monty Turner will serve.

In his plea agreement, Turner agreed to 36 years, but that includes guilty pleas for other violent crimes, such as felony menacing, use of a stun gun and violation of custody, as well as the kidnapping.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 21

Harsh U.S. sentence raises questions about Canadian courts

The sentence Turner may serve is raising eyebrows at the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

Kevin Maryk was sentenced in Winnipeg last month to four years behind bars for abducting his two children and taking them to Mexico for four years.

Maryk was sentenced in September, but he was also given credit for time served. He’ll be out in less than a year.

Christy Dzikowicz of Winnipeg-based Canadian Centre for Child Protection said comparing the two cases raises questions about how seriously Canadian courts view parental abduction, given Maryk’s four-year sentence.

“It seems like a very inadequate response to the crime that was committed when we see these sentences come out of the U.S.,” she said. “It really underscores where we really need to make some changes on our side.”

Dzikowicz said it’s disappointing.

“We have a long way to go for people to recognize how serious a crime it is to remove children. It’s not a matter of, you know, they’re with a parent, so it’s not so bad. It is bad.”

Maryk’s ex-wife, Emily Cablek, said it’s clear U.S. authorities take the issue of parents abducting their children much more seriously.

“I mean it is really surprising,” she said. “Canada has a long way to go. The Canadian laws are very, very sad and disappointing.”

Cablek said even though she has full custody of her children now, she is afraid Maryk will try to take the children again when he gets out of jail.

“I don’t want to lose my kids again and I will say, they don’t want to see him,” she told CBC. “It’s hard because I hope he doesn’t put us through another custody battle, I hope he doesn’t take more years away as a family.”
