This is the Story

This is the story of a young lady who has lost her way and somewhere along that path decided to take a turn that would only spell trouble for all those involved.

It involves the unauthorized detention of two very young children who were removed from South Australia to the United States for a maternal family visit. After arriving in the US their mother called her husband at home in Australia and in a voice mail stated that she was not coming back and that the marriage was over.

There was no indication of a reason why and no evidence prior to that time that such a turn of events could take place.

The father of the children retained the services of an attorney in the State of Montana who went into Federal Court and then to Montana State Court and obtained an order for the mother to return to Australia with the children by a certain date. All of Robin's family believed that she had departed to return to Australia except for the maternal grandmother who family members thought was taking her Robin and grandchildren to the airport for the return flight to Australia.

Robin and children apparently never got on the plane and their present whereabouts are unknown to the father of the children who has not heard from them since.

The children's father is an Australian citizen, their mother is an American with permanent residency rights in Australia and the children were born in Australia making them Australian citizens.

Hi Joland,
Welcome to our forum! hi-wave2

I have not managed to find any information to confirm that these children have been found. But you may well be right. I note that you are based in Montana, where their father retained the services of an attorney and an order for thm to be returned to their home in Australia. Do you have access to any articles that may help us find out if they have been returned?

We would like to move this case to our 'recovery section' but can only do so when it has been confirmed they have been found.

Eli is still listed as missing on the Missing Kids website.

ELI STEVEN BATTISTESSA

http://www.missingkids.com/missingkids/servlet/PubCaseSearchServlet?act=viewChildDetail&caseNum=0806120008&orgPrefix=USMT&seqNum=1&caseLang=en_US&searchLang=en_US

Faith's case no longer appears on the Missing Kids website.
Which is usually an indication that the child has been located.

I found this info on a Facebook page called come home Robin, Eli, and Faith. It says that the father had got the good news that they were found. I have googled for the states missing and can come up with nothing. It is funny to me that here in our state I have heard very little on this case at all.

I have found cases on Facebook before where children were reported to have been found only to discover at a later date that the children were still missing!!!

Hopefully in this case it will turn out to true!!! We will wait and see!!! It might take a few days for all the official Missing Kids lists to be updated! So fingers crossed!!!

We still have to await official confirmation as both children still included on Missing Kids poster!!!
http://www.missingkids.com/missingkids/servlet/PubCaseSearchServlet?act=viewPoster&caseNum=0806120008&orgPrefix=USMT&searchLang=en_US

They are also still listed on Australia's Missing Persons Register.

You are right to be cautious here Twiglet.
I wonder if only Eli remains missing? Only his details are on the poster, along with his mother's details.

I know there is not an individual photo of Faith on the poster and her name isn't listed on it as an individual in her own right but the info at the end of the page still includes her as an abducted child and makes no mention of her having been found!!!

Abducted by mother Robin Gail Battistessa, aka Robin Cooper. Warrant DR-06-358C issued by Judge John Brown to take children into protective custody if located. Also taken Faith Zae Battistessa female, date of birth 8/10/2005, blue eyes and blonde hair. Children were to board a plane for Australia from Montana.

But as I said maybe the listings are in the process of being updated!! We will wait and see!!


If you go by the ICMEC listings per our first post both children have been removed from the list!!! don\'tknow

According to the Facebook entry, The children were found 8 December 2010.

I contacted Raf Battistessa (father of the children) via the Facebook page on behalf of the forum. He has now given me official confirmation that the children are safe and with him. I will post my message, along with his reply below. I am not afraid to say that his replybrought a tear to my eye. Thank you to all who work in our missing section, especially Twiglet, who spends many hours in this section.
I am now happy that we can safely move this case to our Recoveries section.
cheers

Raf Battistessa March 5 at 3:54am

Thankyou Tezza, for your and your teams help in promoting the cases of missing children. Parents like myself are very greatful for the kindness people like yourself and others offer.
I am very glad to let you know that I do have my children back and they are going well. I will try to contact those other groups to update them.
My life now has changed dramaticly(for the better), and I'm struggling to keep up with all of the little extra things(paper work side) I need to do, so sorry for taking so long to get back to you.
God bless and all the best to you and your team.
Raf.


Tezza March 1 at 9:59am

Dear Raf,

I am Admin of a missing children's forum called Find Madeleine.
Set up when Madeleine McCann disappeared but since then we have fatured many hundreds more missing children.

Your children, Faith & Eli are amongst the cases we have featured.
We understand from a Facebook group that your children were found safe on 8th December 2010. But they are still listed as missing on both the Missing Kids and Australia's Missing Persons Register websites.

Could you please confirm if your children have indeed been recovered safely, so that we can then move their case to our Recoveries section.

Many thanks, your children's case is featured here:
