Children Abducted From Queens Facility
How do you kidnap EIGHT children? One New York City woman has figured it out.
Shanel Nadal, 28, kidnapped her seven sons and one daughter during a supervised visit at a Queens foster care facility.
The abducted boys are all apparently named after their biological father, Nephra Payne, 34.
They are Nephra Payne, 11; Nephra Ceo Payne, 10; Nephra John Payne, 9; Nephra Shalee Payne, 6; Nephra Rahsul Payne, 6; Nephra Umeek Payne, 5; and Nephra Yahmen Payne, 4.
The lone girl was identified as Nefertiti Payne, 11 months.
The New York Police Department said Nadal may be traveling with the children’s biological father in a black 1996 Chevrolet Suburban with license plate number EXZ5896.
The Administration for Children’s Services released this statement:
“ACS and our foster care agency began working with the NYPD immediately after the mother absconded with the children from a visit at the foster care agency yesterday. Earlier today, we sought and received active warrants from the Manhattan Family Court for the arrest of both parents and for them to produce the children to the court. We ask for the public’s assistance in locating the children, and appreciate any assistance that they can provide the NYPD.”
They did not release any information on why the children were taken from the parents.
Anyone with information about the children is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
I hope those babies are safe! Please pray for them.
