U.S. marshals help Douglas find woman who absconded with kids

Staff Reports

A woman being sought for absconding with her children in violation of her joint custody agreement was arrested at a family member’s home in Colville, Wash.

Kathryn Ann Moore’s children are safe and will be turned over to their father by U.S. marshals, who aided Douglas County in finding them.

Moore 44, was arrested in connection with the case, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Moore was to appear in district court to turn the children over to their father on Nov. 21, 2013. She did not appear in court, and attempts to contact her failed.

On Dec. 11, 2013, a nationwide warrant was issued for child concealment.

The arrest of Moore was made possible by a joint investigation between the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshal’s Offices in Reno, Oklahoma and Washington, according to Sgt. Pat Brooks.

“I have set a priority for missing children cases and want to extend my gratitude to the Investigation Division for the dedication to follow leads and utilize assets in the location of the children,” Sheriff Ron Pierini.

Investigator Nadine Chrzanowski thanked the Marshals office for providing personnel to help follow up leads outside Nevada’s borders.

Moore is being held in Washington pending extradition back to Nevada.
