    Details of Disappearance

    Jacob and his sister Halle disappeared from Arkadelphia, Arkansas on May 30, 2005. They were abducted by their non-custodial mother, Luanne Kay Bobo. A photograph and vital statistics for Luanne are posted below this case summary.

    The children's father, Chris Bobo, has full custody of them. After Chris and Luanne divorced, Luanne moved to the United Kingdom and remarried. Chris and Luanne worked out a regular visitation schedule. Chris last saw children in May 2005; their mother refused to return them to the United States after a visit. He last spoke to them in November 2005. He stated Jacob was crying and frightened during the conversation. A felony warrant was issued for Luanne on June 22, 2006, but the UK refuses to extradite her.

    Chris has sent gifts to his children through the United States consulate in the UK, and the consulate gives him updates on their well-being every six months. He is making active efforts towards their return to his care. Halle and Jacob's whereabouts are known, but they remain listed as missing because their custodial father doesn't have them. Their cases remain unsolved.
