AUSTIN (KXAN) - After his kids went missing last summer a Central Texas father, who is a U.S. military veteran, couldn't get help from law enforcement.
Despite knowing the mother abducted the kids in defiance of court orders and demanded money from their father to bring them back, law enforcement failed to act.
So, the dad turned to KXAN to help find his kids. KXAN Lead Investigator Chris Willis accepted the challenge. The KXAN investigation investigation spanned six months. It crossed state lines and even the U.S. border.
Now, KXAN has helped track down the abductor and the kids -- and convinced law enforcement to finally take action.
Thursday at 6 p.m., Chris Willis will unveil the results of his investigation that helped track down the abductor and the kids, and prompted law enforcement to finally take action.
