Mother reunited with son kidnapped 31 years ago

Posted November 01, 2018

A Canadian mother has been reunited with her son abducted three decades earlier by his father, whom police said on Monday (Oct 30) fled with the boy to the USA and raised him under an alias.

More than 30 years ago, Lyneth Mann-Lewis' 21-month-old son vanished after visiting his father. The young boy was taken to the United States where he was told his mother had died and the father and son began living under assumed identities.

She said she had endured many hard days over the 31 years and boarded a flight to the USA to reunite with her son shortly after hearing that he'd been found.

Mann grew up believing that his mother had died shortly after his birth and remained unaware of his true identity or how he had entered the country until Friday, when USA marshals took his father into custody. "The words "Your son is alive, we found him" - that is breathtaking", Lyneth Mann-Lewis, from Canada, said about learning her son had been found. He also faces charges in the USA for making false statements.

He will face a charge of abduction once extradited back to Canada. "He said he was originally from SC that his wife left with their son, after removing all the money from the Bank account", - told one of the neighbors.

Officials say the elder Mann had abducted his son during a court-ordered visit in 1987, and then fled across the border. He's going through a trying time right now, Ms. Mann-Lewis said during the press conference.

The two countries made a decision to reprise the manhunt in 2016 - and US Marshals found relatives in August who revealed the pair had lived in the Bronx in the 1990s, then moved to CT under assumed names, according to the Hartford Courant.

At a Toronto press conference, Ms Mann-Lewis broke down in tears as she described the ordeal.

The investigation has involved multiple U.S. agencies including HUD, the U.S. Marshals Service, Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, as well as Toronto police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
