Two kids who were reported seriously missing by the police on Thursday night have been located safe in Oklahoma.
Kidnapped By Own Mother
Chantelle Gwivaha, 8, and Jason Gwivaha, 6, were allegedly kidnapped by their biological mother Alaina Rudenko, who the police claim does not have custody.
The father of the kids claimed that he waited for them to exit the school bus on Thursday afternoon but they never did. The father reportedly had cause for concern, but neither he nor the police were concerned about the children being hurt.
Want To Bring Her Kids To Russia
Rudenko has already confided in acquaintances that she want to return to her native Russia. Police thought the woman intended to bring the kids to Russia with her.
Without incident, Rudenko was taken into custody in Wagoner, Oklahoma, around 8:30 a.m. on Friday. According to officials, a vehicle saw Rudenko’s broken-down automobile in a parking lot and contacted the police to check on him. Two counts of interfering with child custody have been brought against her.
Child Protective Services and Lewisville police are working to return the kids to Lewisville. Before heading back to Lewisville, Rudenko will be charged in Wagoner County, which can take a few days.
