Runaway children are usually released to whichever parent has custody after they’ve been found, but the kids’ case details a lot of custody issues, and now with an added child abuse claim.
Police are still investigating why the children decided to leave the home. CYFD is working to ensure the safety of the children, who are caught in the middle of a custody dispute. The state of Oklahoma is also working with the children, and they suspect the FBI might be consulted to assist too.
The mother of the children was recently taken into custody in Oklahoma.
