A List of Pathetic Parental Kidnappers

September 8, 2015

Here’s a list of some of the pathetic parental kidnapping cases we have followed.

Genevieve and Scott Kelley

They pathetically kidnapped Mary Nunes in 2004 and were not arrested until 10 years later in 2014. Both have served or are serving jail time. They have not yet supported a reunification of the now adult child and her biological parents. Some believe they are still kidnapping her. Most believe that this now adult-child is emotionally brainwashed and will need to be deprogrammed.

Kelly Rutherford

Most of the parental kidnappers that made our list engaged in long-term abductions. Kelly Rutherford, also claiming to be an activist has been speaking at Protective Parent Conferences. She probably thought she had a free pass due to her celeb-status. She kidnapped her children for over 3 days when she did not send the kids back to Monaco after her parenting time had expired. Only Kelly and her children know what she told them during those 3 days. Our guess is that it doesn’t make her Coparenter of the Year.

We encourage the adult-victim children to seek therapy and to separate from their parental kidnapper. These adult-children should contact a therapist. The www.takeroot.org would also be a good resource.

It is unfortunate that there is not Victim Restitution Funds for these adult-children to seek the therapy they rightfully deserve for the abduction, parental alienation and other trauma that was horribly inflicted on the.

Eileen Clark Convicted of Felony Parental Kidnapping

December 17, 2014
Eileen Clark - Convicted of Felony Parental Kidnapping

Eileen Clark – Convicted of Felony Parental Kidnapping

On December 17, 2014, Eileen Clark was sentenced and is now a convicted U.S. Criminal with a Felony Record. With her three children in the U.K., there are sources that indicate she can return to the U.K. Since she married a U.K. citizen, it sounds like she has certain citizenship rights in the U.K. However, we find it difficult to believe that the U.K. would want any United States Citizen in their country that has a criminal felony record. Especially after she fought the extradition order. In most of these cases, parental kidnappers break many other laws in those countries. We would not be surprised to hear that Eileen Clark is once again in the news for a crime that she committed. Eileen Clark was ordered to pay the father $1,500 US in restitution. When I first heard that figure, I thought it was a typo because a figure of 1.5 Million, $150,000 or even $15,000 would sound like the amount of restitution. The Judge probably felt she was near indigent and with the felony conviction will never work another day in her life. That felony conviction will follow Eileen Clark around for the rest of her life.

We wish the well in reunifying with his three children. We believe those now adult-children now know the truth in this case. And by Eileen Clark pleading guilty, their mother is the convicted criminal and their father, the victim.


Parental Kidnappers of 2014

December 9, 2014

Here’s our list of parental kidnappers of 2014. During the year, all of these parental kidnappers were incarcerated or jailed for their crime. All of them kidnapped their children from the United States to another country and lived underground or in hiding. In 2015, each of these kidnappers will go on trial or be sentenced by a Federal Judge for their crime against an innocent child.

We would like to see each of them spend one day in jail for every day they kidnapped their child from their custodial former spouse. Parental Kidnapping is one of the most horrific crimes against a child and is one of the most severe forms of Domestic Violence. We applaud the efforts of the United States Department of Justice, International Law Enforcement Agencies and the Legal Systems and Local U.S. Law Enforcement for ensuring the criminal prosecution of these cases.

In 2015, we look forward to seeing convictions in these cases. We also want to see every searching parent in these cases reunified with their now adult-children. It’s time for these adult victim-children to be the responsible adult in these cases and send a clear message to their kidnapper. Their kidnapper had other legal options and should never had committed this outrageous crime.

2014 Major Events in Parental Kidnapping Cases


Freedom: It’s Hers to Lose

October 24, 2014

Editors Note: This content is being reposted. It was written by Ronda Orchard.

By Ronda Orchard

“United States of America vs Eileen Clark,” the bailiff announced. Unlike the picture painted by her ardent supporters of a frail woman about to be extradited back to New Mexico on July 4, 2014, any reasonable person could see that she needed no assistance to reach the podium to answer to Judge Lorenzo Garcia. Even so she was flanked on each side by her lawyers. On October 23, 2014, Eileen Clark began the appeal process by recanting a previous “not guilty” plea on charges of International Parental Kidnapping.

With consistent due diligence Judge Garcia began to question Eileen’s competency to strike a new and lasting plea deal.

Judge: “Are you making this plea because you are guilty?”
Eileen: “Yes”.
Judge: “Were you coerced into making this guilty plea?”
Eileen: “No”.
Judge: “If a trial were conducted would the evidence against you convict you?”
Eileen: “Yes”.
Judge: “Have you ever been diagnosed or treated for any mental illness?”
Eileen: “No”.

Judge Garcia continued to determine if Eileen understood the bargain she was asking for would strip her of fundamental civil rights and provide no further ability to withdraw her guilty plea. By recanting her previous “not guilty” plea her integrity is called into question for every encounter she’s had since 1995.

Obstructers should learn from this case that accepting at face value and not vetting claims of abuse from Abductors is like receiving stolen property. And in this case, in the form of parental alienation, Obstructers collude with Abductors in separating children from parents and the love, wisdom, protection and influence they have to give their children. Should human rights benefactors such as Liberty and Refuge be held accountable for impeding justice?

You have to conclude that the preponderance of evidence against Eileen influenced her to rethink her future behind bars as a matter of fact. Making a plea on one count of International Parental Kidnapping is the least she could do considering she ran the clock out on the two oldest children. This case highlights the idea that if you think yourself clever enough you may outlast a prison sentence. Perhaps this case begins to answer questions related to the statute of limitations: when does it start ticking and when does it conclude?

Judge Garcia not only declared Eileen Clark guilty under her special plea but he declared her mentally fit to pronounce herself guilty on all charges pending against her. When asked if she had ever been diagnosed or treated for mental illness Eileen added her voice to two High Court judges from Britain calling her PTSD claim “dubious”. Eileen’s very freedom now hinges on the fact that she can no longer malign, slander or defame her ex-husband, John Clark. Don’t you think her supporters should stop spreading the lies as well?

For those who will now weigh in with public opinion, I challenge you to correct the misinformed when they claim Eileen was abused. Ask them to reserve their sympathy for real victims of abuse. Remember, going forward, Eileen’s freedom is hers to lose.


International Family Abduction Community Following Eileen Clark Parental Kidnapping Case

April 24, 2012

Fifteen years ago, Eileen Clark, an American Citizen kidnapped her three children in a Family Abduction from New Mexico, USA to the United Kingdom. Eileen Clark was arrested in July 2010, in Oxford, UK. For the past 19 months, her team of lawyers have used the legal system to fight extradition back to the United States to face Parental Kidnapping charges in the USA. 

 Her final arguments argued in the UK High Court: 

  • that it would be unlawful and “oppressive” to extradite her because of her worsening psychiatric problems and fear of flying
  • the US authorities were at fault for not seeking her return earlier as she had been living “openly” in the UK since December 1998 and had put down “deep roots”. 

We understand that Lord Justice Burnton refused to certify that her case raised issues of general public importance (we’ve seen that argument in other cases). The refusal effectively blocks the former aerobics trainer and model from taking her case to the UK Supreme Court. The High Court said it accepted that Mrs Clark would suffer hardship, but it could not be characterized as oppressive. 

We are not surprised to hear that Ms. Clark and her team of Underground or Protective Parent Attorneys are trying to setup a special charter flight (why does she need a charter flight?). For the proclaimed indigent, manipulative and narcissistic underground mothers, we have seen requests like this in other cases. We don’t see any reason why Ms. Clark shouldn’t fly Coach — Ms. Clark obviously feels that the rules that apply to the rest of society, don’t apply to her. 

The Family Abduction Community that includes searching and recovering victim parents is closely following the Eileen Clark International Parental Kidnapping Case. Ms. Clark effectively played Judge, Jury and Executioner (a Faye Yager term) and solely decided the Custody Agreement of her Children. The children are now adults over 18 years of age. There is sadly no law mandating they reunify with their father.

The Extradition from the UK, a conviction for parental kidnapping with a long prison sentence and restitution for the left-behind victim parent would send a strong message to the Protective Parent Community including the Protective Parent Lawyers that parental kidnapping is not an reasonable alternative to a custody agreement. In this age where the U.S. Family Courts prefer co-parenting for the best interests of the child, that would certainly be the step moving forward.
