Details: Kristi and Bobby Baskin are the children of Mark and Debbie Baskin and grandchildren of Marvin and Sandra Maple, Debbie's parents. They loved their grandchildren a bit too much and believed they could be better parents for them than their own parents. They concocted lies and falsehoods to try to keep custody of them from their parents. Their custody battle ended up with a court case and Mark and Debbie got to keep the children. When this ploy didn't work, the Maples vanished with the children during what was supposed to be a regular weekend outing, even going as far as threatening to kill them to keep them from their parents.

Marvin and Sandra Maple

Suspects: Marvin and Sandra Maple
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 7, 1990 episode.
Results: Solved. The kids were seen and reported in Santa Clara, California, as well as Washington, Mississippi, Florida, and Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Three years after Sandra's death, Marvin was finally arrested in February 2009. The kids are alive and well, and well-adjusted adults now but with little emotional attachment to their parents due to the abduction. They have refused all efforts to reunite with them, but whether this is due to some form of brainwashing by their grandparents remains to be seen.
