  1. I know this family, this is the older sister Mariah… Anisa is the younger one! So were they both recovered or just one??

  2. They were both recovered. The pictures we received indicated that she was Anisa rather than Moriah.

  3. The father found both of them, and they are doing good. The sad thing is Candra couldn’t understand why she was going to jail.

  4. Candra is both girls aunt she didnt kidnap anyone Ive seen Frank leave candra ther to watch the kids and not come back when he said he would be back! As for the using the neighbors car, im not sure about all that!

  5. Candra just didnt want to be at the house alone with the kids so she took them with her to a friends house,the kids love Candra she is a great person.Big misunderstanding, this was uncalled for..And yes the neighbor let her use the truck,crazy thing is, is she was suppose to go to the store to buy beer for him, she was under age and he wanted her to buy beer? Wow sounds like the wrong person got charged, they should be thanking Candra.
