An Indiana boy abducted in '94 was found at the age of 24 living under an assumed name in Long Prairie, Minn., ABC News reports Friday. Richard Wayne Landers, Jr. now lives under the name Michael Jeff Landers. He went missing after his grandparents abducted him practically 20 years ago.
Landers' paternal grandparents took him away in '94 because they were upset about custody arrangements. Raymond Michael Iddings and Susan Kay Iddings of Browerville, Minn. -- the boy's grandparents -- confirmed his identity to law enforcement.
Due to the case going cold, charges against the grandparents were dismissed in 2008. Sheriff in Minn. said the case will eventually be forwarded to the U.S. attorney general for possible charges against the grandparents for the boy they abducted in '94.
FOX News reports that Landers' mother, Lisa Harter, reportedly was "jumping up and down for joy." As anyone can imagine, she's said to be the "happiest woman on earth" knowing her long, lost son has been found.
It didn't appear to investigators that the 24-year-old ever suffered any abuse.
