8 NYC kids taken from foster care found OK in Pa.

Sep 27, 2011 11:12:00 AM - thestate.com
Eight siblings allegedly taken from a New York child welfare agency by their mother last week have been found with their parents in a parked van in central Pennsylvania, authorities said.

The children - who range in age from 11 months to 11 years old - are in good condition, police said. Their parents, 28-year-old Shanel Nadal and 34-year-old Nephra Payne, are in custody in Harrisburg.

The children will be returned to New York City and receive any needed medical care and counseling for any trauma they experienced, the city's Administration for Children's Services said.

"An investigation by ACS is already under way into how the children could have been abducted from the foster care agency during a supervised visit," Michael Fagan, an agency spokesman, said in a statement.

Acting U.S. Marshal Martin Pane told The Associated Press that the investigation led them to watch the family's van for several hours Monday evening, when it was parked on a Harrisburg street. The father has relatives nearby, he said.
