Abducted Boys Reunited With Moms In LA

Dads allegedly took preteens to Europe over two years ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three boys who allegedly abducted by their fathers and taken to Europe more than two years ago have returned to Los Angeles with their mothers.

The FBI said Thursday that 12-year-old Greg Silah, 14-year-old Alexander Silah and 11-year-old Zaven Silah have arrived home after being reunited with their two mothers last weekend in the Netherlands.

Their fathers, brothers George and John Silah, are being held by Dutch authorities on U.S. charges of parental abduction.

In a statement, the mothers thanked the FBI and law enforcement agencies, saying all their prayers have been answered.

The men left the United States with their sons following a custodial visit in 2008.
