Woman, 60, accused of abducting grandson in 2000

CHILLICOTHE, Mo. (AP) - A 60-year-old woman accused of abducting her baby grandson from Florida in 2000 moved around Missouri with the child for more than a decade, working at times in residential care facilities.

Sandy Hatte was arrested and charged this month with felony child abduction.

She appeared in Livingston County court Wednesday when a judge set a preliminary hearing for Oct. 23. Her lawyer, Melinda Troeger, declined comment.

The now-teenaged grandson has been reunited with his father and has returned to live with him in Alabama.

Investigators aren't saying how Hatte and the child got by or where they lived.

But an official with a Sedalia-based residential care company says Hatte worked for the company for a few years and was a "very good employee."

CHILICOTHE, Mo. (AP) — A 60-year-old woman has been arrested in the almost 13-year-old abduction of a child in Florida.

The Kansas City Star reports that Sandy Hatte is being held on $25,000 bond in the Daviess/DeKalb County Regional Jail in Pattonsburg. She was arraigned Friday on a charge of felony child abduction. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

Authorities took custody of the child Wednesday after a school official raised concerns. The biological father traveled to Chillicothe this week to be reunited with his child.

A Livingston County's sheriff's office news release described Hatte as being "somehow related to the family" of the child. Hatte and the child had only lived in Livingston County for about a month.

   A body was found Wednesday in the search for a kidnapped 12 year old Missouri girl, although authorities say a positive identification had not been made.

   Adriaunna Horton's father, James Horton, told KMBC-TV that his daughter's body had been found.

   A spokesman for the Missouri State Highway Patrol declined to disclose where the body was found, KMBC reported, but confirmed the search effort for Horton has been suspended.

   Bobby Bourne Jr., 34, of Lamar, Mo., was charged with kidnapping Tuesday in the disappearance of Horton, who was last seen Monday afternoon getting into a vehicle around 5 p.m. in Golden City, Mo.

   James Horton told ABC News affiliate KODE-TV that the suspect was known to his family.

   "He worked for me last summer on a job, a construction job. He was a neighbor. He lived less than a block behind us for a year," Horton said.

   On Tuesday, searchers used horses, all-terrain vehicles, dogs and a patrol helicopter to scour the small town.

   "We are going to exhaust every lead that comes in," said Troop D Public Information Officer Sgt. Jason Pace of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

   Horton was at the park with her sister and friends celebrating the end of her first day of the new school year when witnesses reported seeing her get into an SUV.

   The girl's father said he was told the driver of the SUV was asking children at the park for help.

   "He was whining he couldn't find his daughter. He had a missing child. He asked the girls in the park to help him," Horton said. "My oldest daughter walked up to his vehicle. That's when she was abducted."

   Police said they stopped a similar vehicle 90 minutes later and arrested Bourne, who was driving alone.

   Bourne was being held in the Barton County Jail on a $1 million bond. He had not entered a plea.

   An elementary school-aged child is safe after police say a man tried to force her into a van at a bus stop.

   The girl was waiting for the bus in the 4100 block on Muro Lane in Bridgeton Wednesday. She told officers that a man in a white van parked and asked her to help him load something into the vehicle. When she refused, the man grabbed her. The girl escaped and the suspect drove off in the van.

   Pattonville School District officials say its the second incident in Bridgeton this week.  District officials sent a letter to parents saying that on Tuesday a man had approached an elementary school student in the Spanish Village neighborhood asking to talk. The boy ran away.

   In both cases, the suspect is described as a white man in his 40s.  The girl told police he has a tattoo on his right forearm and was wearing a camouflage jacket with black pants and a black baseball hat.  

   Bridgeton police say they don't know if the incidents are related, but they're ask anyone with information to call them at 314-739-7557.

   The Bridgeton incidents come less than a week after a suspicious incident at an Ellisville bus stop. A fourth-grade girl was waiting for the bus when she says a woman in a white van tried to coax her into the vehicle three separate times. The girl ran home and her parents called police.
