US -> MEX: Indiana man back home 18 years after abduction
« on: February 05, 2014, 09:11:47 PM »
INDIANAPOLIS — Nathan Slinkard was 5 years old when his mother failed to return him to his father as an Indiana court had ordered.

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old man was back home with his father, about a week after he walked into the United States Consulate in Guadalajara, Mexico, identified himself and asked to come home to the U.S.

His return 18 years after he went missing buoyed investigators who hope Nathan's return leads to a bigger reunion with his siblings and their father, Steve Slinkard.

"We all thought that after all the kids were legal that this would happen. It's just awesome that it still happened after all these years," said Hancock County Sheriff's Department Lt. Ted Munden, the last local investigator in the case.

Nathan Slinkard was 5, his brother, Andrew, was 7, and their sister, Sydney, was 3 in October 1995 when they went missing from Greenfield, a city about 20 miles east of Indianapolis. Authorities say their mother, Trena Slinkard, failed to return them despite a court order after their father filed a motion seeking full custody.

"Every parent who has a child and they tuck him in at night, or her in at night, and they wish the best and only the best and they will always protect the child and do whatever they can, but most of the time they don't have to prove it. I'm in the proving grounds, to myself and to my child.  I have to get him home and I will do whatever I have to. I'll never stop to save him."  --David Goldman

Another "successful" Hague case w/ Mexico!!

This must be what "Special Advisor" Susan Jacobs was talking about when she proclaimed the great compliance and progress from Mexico.

Actually... if this ever were an open Hague case they would have marked it as "successfully resolved" once the child turned 16.
