Custody Confusion

Police try to determine who has custody of children.

Police in Rushville, Indiana ere trying to determine who has legal custody of two children who were the subjects of an Amber Alert in Indiana and Kentucky. Tamara Johnson is the mother of 15-year-old Danyelle Hyden and 13-year-old Alan Hyden. She reported to police that the children's father, 39-year-old Elvis Hyden had taken them across the Indiana-Kentucky state line without her permission Sunday. Rushville Police Chief Tony Fudge then issued the alert, which was later canceled after the children were found unharmed. Yesterday, police sought court records to determine which parent has custody of the children. Both parents told authorities that they were the children's legal guardians. Police have determined that Hyden posed no threat to the children, and no charges were filed against him.
