Vermont boy, 12, subject of Amber Alert, found safe in NH; mom arrested
HANOVER — A 12-year-old boy, reported missing from Sunderland, Vt., in an Amber Alert, was located unharmed in Lyme with his non-custodial mother and another child, according to Hanover police.
About 10:30 p.m. Monday, Hanover police received information from Vermont State Police in Rutland that Zachary Lee was abducted by his mother, Patricia Kane, 49, and that they were possibly in Hanover.
Police interviewed employees of several businesses in downtown Hanover and learned the two were there earlier but had called a taxi to take them to an inn in Lyme.
Hanover police and state police troopers went to the inn where they located Kane, Lee and a second child who was not reported missing. Both children were unharmed.
Kane was arrested on a fugitive-from-justice charge. She will be arraigned at the 2nd Circuit Court, Lebanon District Division, Tuesday morning.
Both children were taken into protective custody and turned over to social workers from Vermont.
The Amber Alert was issued after Zachary was reported missing late Monday afternoon. He was dropped off at the foot of his driveway at his foster home at 2327 North Road in Sunderland, but never made it inside. The alert was sounded just after 8:30 p.m. that evening.
Zachary recently returned to Vermont from France. Authorities were concerned his mother would take off with him, based on a documented history of such attempts while the child was in France, according to Vermont State Police.
Police said Kane has been highly unstable and volatile since Zachary's arrival in the United States earlier this month, as noted by several members of the Vermont Department of Children and Families staff, as well as by legal authorities and school authorities.
