Real Name: Marvin and Sandra Maple
Aliases: Ray and Sandra Farmer
Wanted For: Abduction
Missing Since: 1989
Details: Marvin and Sandra Maple loved their grandchildren, Kristi and Bobby Baskin, a bit too much, trying to keep custody of them from their daughter and son-in-law, Mark and Debbie Baskin. They fabricated lies and falsehoods to keep custody of the kids, and when this ploy didn't work and Mark and Debbie became their legal guardians. The Maples vanished with them, threatening to kill them to keep them from their parents.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 7, 1990 episode.
Results: Captured. 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 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. Whether this is due to some form of brainwashing by their grandparents remains to be seen. Marvin Maple eventually passed away in 2016.
