Levia Molinari

Real Name: Levia Molinari
Aliases: None known
Wanted For: Abduction
Missing Since: June 21, 1989


Details: Arthur Koropolous had been in a relationship with Levia Molinari, and it produced a son named Nicholas. As the years passed, the couple grew apart, and Levia began to get involved in a cult that preached poverty theology and encouraged its members to wear homespun drab attire. Levia began living in a low-rent tenement with several other cult members, and she got Nicholas involved in the cult. Arthur was awarded custody of Nicholas on the basis Levia had no employment and her decision to join this cult was viewed as a child risk by the courts, as well as that Arthur remarried and was gainfully employed. However on June 21, 1989, Levia absconded with Nicholas. When Arthur arrived at Levia's tenement, he found it completely empty. He was able to track down several of the cult members in the following months, but they refused to reveal Levia and Nicholas's whereabouts. Three years have passed and Arthur is still searching for Nicholas and Levia.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 5, 1992 episode.
Results: Captured. Viewers' tips revealed Levia's location in Chicago. She was arrested shortly afterwards, convicted of child abduction and sentenced to three years of probation. Nicholas has been reunited with his father and stepmother.
