Man Abducted As Child in Indiana, Found in Minnesota

Posted: Updated:

Authorities  have identified a 24-year-old man recently discovered living in Minnesota under an assumed name nearly two decades after his grandparents abducted him from Indiana.  Authorities say Richard Wayne Landers Jr. now lives in the small northern Minnesota town of Long Prairie under the name Michael Jeff Landers. Authorities say Landers' paternal grandparents took him back in 1994 when he was just five years old because they were upset over custody arrangements with his parents. Authorities do say, the case will eventually be forwarded to the U.S. attorney general for possible federal charges.
