Woman reunited with missing son after 31 years

01 November 2018

The mother of a toddler abducted in 1987 said Monday she was stunned when she learned he had been found and overcome with emotion at finally being reunited with him 31 years later.

The saga for mother and child began in 1987 during a visit between 21-month-old Jermaine Mann and his father, Allan Mann Jr.

Mann Jr. obtained bogus documents for the pair, and told Jeremy that his mother had died decades ago. It was made possible by the work of United States authorities who finally found and arrested the father, Allan Mann Jr. on October 26 in Vernon, Conn. Mann was living there with his son who was born as Jermaine Mann but was unknowingly using a fake name in the U.S. Jermaine Mann has since been reunited with his mother, Lyneth Mann-Lewis.

Allan Mann Jr. appeared briefly Friday in federal court in Hartford, Conn., where he faces charges including making false statements in transactions with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Canadian authorities say they intend to pursue extradition once the USA case is resolved, so that Mann Jr can be charged in connection with the 1987 abduction. "He said he was originally from SC that his wife left with their son, after removing all the money from the Bank account", - told one of the neighbors.

They spoke for hours, she said, and she made sure to cook him a meal before she flew back to Canada.

"But be patient. Be strong and believe that all things are possible and that anything can transpire". She thanked the Missing Children Society of Canada and officials in the US for bringing her son, now 33, back to her.

Investigators say the reunion between mother and son was especially emotional because the now 33-year-old man had grown up believing his mother was dead.

Allan Mann Jr. remains in custody following his arrest. So, what are we going to do with the chicken?' He said, 'You know what, Mommy? She thanked Canadian and US authorities and the Missing Children Society of Canada for helping find Jermaine. "The words, "Your son is alive".

Only in 2016, there is evidence that in 1990-e years, Allan and Germaine lived in the Bronxand then moved to CT under false names. A forensic specialist from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children compared a photo of Allan Mann to the CT driver's license for DeSouza and determined they were the same person.

At a Toronto press conference, Ms Mann-Lewis broke down in tears as she described the ordeal.

The investigation has involved multiple US agencies including HUD, the US Marshals Service, Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, as well as Toronto police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Among them was the Missing Children Society of Canada. "As you can imagine, this is a hard time for all of us", she said.

Now Mann-Lewis was coming to CT to see her son, a grown man working for the state of CT.
