Lakeville PD Issue Kidnapping Warrant In Search For Children
Lakeville Police have issued a kidnapping warrant against a woman who did not return her two children to their father.
Police say they received a call from a man named Steven Carrigan who says that the mother of his two children, identified as 47-year-old Valerie McGrath, took the children with the father's permission Sunday afternoon but didn't return them at 5 p.m. as agreed.
The children are identified as 5-year-old Steven and 7-year-old Eden.
Police say they have been unable to reach McGrath and are concerned about the childrens' safety due to actions and statements made by McGrath in the last few weeks.
A warrant for McGrath's arrest on a charge of minor kidnapping by a relative was obtained Monday morning in Wareham District Court.
McGrath is driving a 2002 Land Rover Discovery with a Mass. plate number 847ZZ2.
Anyone who sees the vehicle or has information on McGrath's whereabouts is asked to call the police department in that jurisdiction.
