Katherine and James Durkin

Real Name: Catherine and James Terrance Durkin
Aliases: Cathy and Terry Durkin
Wanted For: Abduction
Missing Since: June 23, 1981

CaseEdit

Details: James Fontes is a police officer who had two sons, Robert and Christopher Fontes with Catherine Durkin. After divorcing Fontes, who had been accused of being abusive to her, Catherine abducted her two sons with the help of her new husband, James Terrance Durkin. A few months later, police managed to arrest James Durkin, but they could not arrest Katherine who eluded capture. She and Durkin abducted the two boys again just before Jim was able to reach them. Jim Fontes has been searching for his sons and ex-wife for nine years.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the November 14, 1990 episode.
Results: Captured. Several viewers recognized Kathy and Terry Durkin, and the two were arrested. The boys were reunited with their father soon after, but the alleged abduction may have been a fabrication by Fontes, who accused Catherine of abducting them after informing her ex-husband she was leaving with them. The full facts in this case are unrevealed.
