A New York mother is on the run with her eight children after taking them from a child protective agency Tuesday.
Police fear the children may be in danger, myFOXny.com reported, after Shanel Nadal absconded with them during a supervised visit Monday afternoon at Forestdale Inc., an Administration for Children's Services facility in Forest Hills, Queens.
Nadal, 28, does not have legal custody of the children, who range in age from 11 months to 11 years, police said. Seven of them are boys -- all named Nephra Payne -- and one is a girl, named Nefertiti Payne.
They may be with their biological father, 34-year-old Nephra Payne, police said, and traveling in a black car.
A New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services Missing Child Alert was issued.
There are so many WFT statements here.
28 years old with 8 kids. All ended up in protective custody. Hum. I am going to assume they are a meal ticket for her, she used the welfare payemnts she was getting to get her nails done, pay for drugs, and who knows what else while her kids, probably supervised by the 11 year old, sat in a nasty home with no power or running water. Bet she sold her foodstamps too and left them with no food. This is just me assuming based on how the majority of these stories usually play out.
She gave 7 of the boys the same name as the dad? Is it because no one at the social service office would pick names for her? Was she too lazy to think of something? Was it so she wouldn't have to learn the names of each child?
Who is the idiot that was supposed to be supervising these kids that let this happen?
