Hunter Nelson found safe

According to this article, family abduction victim Hunter Nelson has been returned to his father’s custody in Montana. Hunter’s mom, Chelsea, and dad, Byron, had gone on a vacation to the Bahamas in July 2009 and when it was over, Chelsea refused to go back to the US or let Byron take Hunter. He had to go home without his son and apply for his return under the Hague Treaty. Well, late last month, after over a year, Hunter has once more been reunited with this father.

In the pictures, Hunter (who is now almost two) looks very happy and absolutely adorable. Byron has taken time off from work to catch up on father-son time. I wish the best for both of them.

    That was a lovely story. I hope Hunter and his parents get therapy so they can learn how to parent him together in a healthy way, but for now I’m glad he’s back with his dad. Nice to see a happy resolution for a change.

    …On Disappeared show they did a story on Elizabeth and John Calvert. Seeing the family/friends and hearing their story makes their presumed deaths seem so spooky.

    Hunter is still on NCMEC even tho they stepped in to help get him back and I’ve emailed them twice that he’s been found and they can come to charley project for proof if they don’t believe me. Geez!

      NCMEC can be a little slow to remove some cases.

    Case Manager Gary Kossky from NCMEC emailed me yesterday, the 17th, to let me know they had all the info they needed on Hunter and didn’t need to come to this sight for info. Hunter is still on NCMEC. The guy must be a genius.
