    Details of Disappearance

    John resided with his mother, Nancy Stevens, and his siblings, ten-year-old Christopher Stevens and eight-year-old April Stevens, in Covina, California in 2001. The family's social worker was notified by the children's school administrators that they had not been attending classes. She visited their residence on February 8, 2001 and discovered that Nancy had taken the children and moved from their apartment. Nancy did not leave a forwarding address. A warrant was been issued for her arrest on charges of cruelty to a child with possible injury and/or death.

    Photos of April and Christopher are posted below this case summary; photographs and information for Nancy are unavailable. April and Christopher were both found safe in 2012, but John remains missing and his case remains unsolved.
