On Wednesday 8/1/12 at approximately 3:30PM the Hollis Police Department received a call regarding a possible parental kidnapping that had occurred.

Information received indicated that a 4 year old male child had been removed from the State by his mother contrary to a court order issued in the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua Family Division.

Hollis Police Patrol and Detective Division coordinated an immediate investigation in an attempt to locate the child. Over the following 8 hours, the child was tracked to a hotel in Windsor Locks Connecticut, where he was allegedly being concealed by a family member. Police officers began a dialogue with that family member in an effort to have the child returned to the State of New Hampshire and to the custody of his father, as ordered by the court. While this was ongoing, the Hollis Police Department applied for and was granted a felony arrest warrant for the family member that was concealing the child. Efforts to have the family member turn the child over to law enforcement voluntarily were unsuccessful and with the assistance of the Windsor Locks Connecticut Police, the missing child was located at a hotel in their town at approximately 11:00PM.

Arrested on a Fugitive From Justice charge in Windsor Locks, CT was Sandra Thorne, age 67, of 10 Watson Road in Durham, NH. The child is identified as Thorne’s grandson and was unarmed and in good condition when found. The child was returned to the custody of his father, John Testa. Thorne was held by the Windsor Locks Police Department in Connecticut overnight where she was due in their court this morning. Thorne faces extradition to New Hampshire to face charges of Interference with Custody, a Class B Felony.

The investigation in this case is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
