Friday, April 8, 2016, ABC 20-20 aired “Footprints in the Snow”, an episode about an “underground railroad” to secretly house kids and teens caught up in custody battles, particularly in Minnesota.
Typical link is here.
The episode concerned the disappearance of two kids one early April evening from their Twin Cities home when their parents were in a bitter divorce and custody battle.
The investigation led to a “ranch” in northern Minnesota, where kids were housed secretly and home schooled by “religious” parents.
One teenage boy said he had lost a year or two of school because of all this and was way behind.
The show indicted the Minnesota family courts system.
