Parent Abducts Child While On a Supervised Visit at The Grove, Xmas eve.

SCV logo As I have always stated in my training classes, “All money isn’t SAFE money, or good money. Rejecting cases is a safety protocol.” This same parent contacted me for services and after he shared his objections to the Uniform Standards of Court 5.20 (Guidelines for visitation) I refused to offer my services. The case represented 10 hours per week. Sound tempting? Don’t allow money to be your sole criteria for providing services.

A 2-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted by her father during a supervised visit near The Grove on Christmas Eve has been found safe in Palm Springs and reunited with her mother.

Jack Perry, 31, was arrested in Palm Springs shortly after 9:30 p.m. Monday night after a witness called the Van Nuys Police Station. The witness recognized Perry and his daughter, Lucia Perry, from a community flier she had seen. She alerted police to their whereabouts in the Palm Springs area and the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect had allegedly rented an apartment on Sunday using a fictitious name. Perry abducted Lucia on Christmas Eve, police said. The person who was supervising the visit lost sight of the pair in the 100 block of The Grove Drive in the Fairfax District at about 5 p.m. Authorities were worried that Perry would take Lucia out of the country since he has access to private aircraft and had threatened to do so before. Perry was booked on child abduction charges. He’s being held in lieu of $40,000 bail. No further details were immediately released.
