It wasn't a kidnapping, the girl went willingly. She's a runaway.

And it's not child molesting. The girl is passed the age of consent.
A relative

Even still, he left his wife and 2 babies to run off with a young girl, he is no more of a man than anything.

Why the media blackout? Where is the girl's statement? Is she claiming kidnapping, or did she willingly runaway with man?

What charges (if any) will the police bring against the man?

Breaking: Missing Oak Grove girl found safe, family gives thanks
Friday, November 23, 2012

Desiray "Rebel" Thibodeaux, 16, was found early Thanksgiving morning on the campus of Moorehead State University in Moorehead, Ky. Thibodeaux had been missing since Halloween.

OAK GROVE -- Relatives of a 16-year-old-girl missing since Halloween are giving thanks today.

Cmdr. Steven Snyder of the Carroll County Sheriff's Office said Desiray Thibodeaux of Oak Grove was found early Thanksgiving morning on the campus of Moorehead State University in Moorehead, Ky.

Snyder said university police had found Thibodeaux and 24-year-old Evan Pearson of Berryville sleeping in a car on campus.

The two had last been spotted on Nov. 3 at the home of one of Pearson's relatives near Drumright, Okla., authorities had said.

Thibodeaux was found with 24-year-old Evan Pearson, of Berryville. Pearson has been arrested and charged with Interference with Custody, a Class C Felony.

Catherine Thibodeaux had reported her daughter missing in the wee hours of Nov. 1, after she did not return home from a Halloween evening event at Oak Grove Freewill Baptist Church.

Witnesses later told investigators they had seen Thibodeaux that night get into Pearson's 1994 Chevy 1500 extended cab truck.

Thibodeaux said Pearson was a recent acquaintance of her daughter's. The two had met about one month before Thibodeaux disappeared, not long after Pearson hired the girl's brother, Adam, to work for his logging enterprise.

Investigators had initially said they believed Thibodeaux left with Pearson of her own free will. However, they had since suggested she might have been in danger.

Snyder said Pearson is being charged with Interference with Custody, a Class C Felony. He is being held in Moorehead but has an extradition hearing scheduled for Monday morning.

Kevin Strickland, Catherine Thibodeaux's boyfriend, said Friday afternoon that the two were on their way home.

"Cathy said it was the best Thanksgiving present she could ever have," he said.

Thanks Janie.

It doesn't sound like custodial interference is anywhere near kidnapping, and if Evans was asleep when the police found them, Thidbodeaux could easily have escaped if she was being held against her will.

If she refued to answer her cell phone or call home, well, that's on her.

I highly doubt the charges will stand. It's obvious the girl was just a runaway who willingly went with Evans and was never in any danger.

Some teenagers make stupid decisions, but that doesn't necessarily mean any crime has been committed.

For no crime to have been committed, they show a MUGSHOT from a previous arrest of his (proving he is ALREADY a CRIMINAL!!!!) And according to KY state police and the Sheriff's office up there, he is in a whole heap of crap.
NOOOooooo.....he's not a criminal.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! Do you want him living next door to YOU and your FAMILY?

Since: Nov 12

There are a lot of sorry a** men in this neck of the woods, but also a lot of sorry a** parents who would allow their children to hang around these guys. Not me. Come to my house to sniff around my daughter, you will meet up with the wrong end of a shot gun barrel.

So true. Shotgun, or a sharp knife.
