Missing children found in Maine


VERNON, Conn. (AP) — Today’s Amber Alert, issued by police in north-central Connecticut for three boys who went missing during a weekend visit with their mother, has been canceled after the children were found in Maine.

The boys — 9-year-old Ryan Lewis and 7-year-old twins Dylan and Brandan Lewis — live with their father in Vernon, and Morris has visitation rights, police said. Authorities say the boys and their mother, 32-year-old Jackie Morris, were found Tuesday morning at a motel in Bangor, Maine. The boys are being returned to their father. Their mother faces possible criminal charges and was taken into custody.

Relatives told police Morris has a history of mental health problems and recently returned to Connecticut after having lived in Maine.

The boy’s father, Jason Lewis, called police Monday night after Morris didn’t return the boys, police said. Morris and the boys were last seen Sunday at a motel in Vernon.

Morris and Lewis were involved in a child custody case in Rockville Superior Court that ended in November with a joint custody agreement that called for the boys to live with their father, while Morris had visitation rights, said Lewis’ lawyer, Benjamin K. Potok. Potok described the custody case as “slightly contentious.”

“My first thoughts are with Jason and his family,” Potok said. “We’re very worried and concerned that the kids come back safe.”

Court records show Morris was living in Southwick, Mass., during the custody case last year.
