Second child reunites with family in U.S. after years of living in Mexico




GREENFIELD — A child kidnapped by his mother during a custody battle 19 years ago has returned to his Greenfield family, arriving from Mexico six months after his younger brother made the same trip home.

Police confirmed Tuesday that Andrew Slinkard, 25, who had been missing since his mother violated a court visitation order in 1995, has returned to the U.S. to reunite with his father, who hadn’t seen him since he was 7 years old. Andrew is the second of Steven Slinkard’s three missing children to surface after years of waiting and wondering; six months ago, Nathan Slinkard contacted authorities in Guadalajara, Mexico, and revealed his true identity, saying he wanted to come home.
