landers692LONG PRAIRIE, MN – A five-year-old boy who was abducted in Indiana has been found — 19 years later.

Richard Landers Jr. was taken by his grandparents in July 1994 during a custody dispute in Wolcottville, IN, near Fort Wayne.

Just a few months ago, police  were given Landers’ Social Security number, and through it they tracked Landers down in Minnesota.  He is now 24 years old.

Landers is said to be overwhelmed by the news about his personal history.  He plans to make a public statement on Monday (Jan. 14).

Police have not said whether or not Landers’ grandparents will face charges, given that the investigation is still ongoing.
