Minden, Nevada – The ongoing investigation of a parental abduction of two children, missing since November 21, 2013 has concluded with the arrest of Kathryn Ann Moore and the safe recovery of the two children Patricia Read and William Moore.
The arrest of Moore was made possible by a joint investigation between the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshals Offices in Reno, NV, and the states of Oklahoma and Washington.
Sheriff Ron Pierini wants to express that he has set a priority for missing children cases and wants to extend his gratitude to the Investigation Division for the dedication to follow leads and utilize assets in the location of the children.
Investigator Chrzanowski would like to thank the US Marshals Office for providing personnel to assist in following up leads outside the state of Nevada…thank you.
Moore was located in a family member’s home in Colville, Washington. No injuries were reported. Moore is pending extradition from the State of Washington. The children will be released to the father, by the US Marshals.
This was the initial report from last month:
inden, Nevada – Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a parental abduction of two children, missing since November 21, 2013.
According to reports, Kathryn Ann Moore (44 years old from Wellington, NV) was scheduled to appear in District Court for the scheduled child exchange of 5 year old Patricia Brite Read and 2 year old William Jesse Moore, to their father Richard Read (Gardnerville, NV), who has joint custody of the children. Kathryn did not appear in court for this exchange. Attempts to contact Kathryn have been unsuccessful and a recent visit to her home has indicated that she has left with the children.
On December 11, 2013, a nationwide felony warrant of arrest for Child Concealment has been issued for Kathryn Moore and the children have been entered into National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database as missing.
Kathryn is believed to be driving a full size blue 1985 Chevrolet van bearing Nevada plates 270YRY.
Kathryn has family in Tomball Texas, Tuolumne California, La Pine Oregon, St. Helens Oregon, Portland Oregon, Vancouver Washington, Longview Washington and Concord North Carolina.
It is believed the children are not in danger at this time, therefore this does not meet the requirements of an Amber Alert. Information on the children has been provided to The Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Anyone who has information as to the location of Kathryn Moore and/or the children is asked to contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
