Details of Disappearance
Robert and his sister Katharine
were abducted by their non-custodial grandparents from Murfreesboro, Tennessee on March 1, 1989. The grandparents had accused Katharine and Robert's parents of sexually abusing them, but the allegations were unfounded.
In February 2009, the children and their grandfather were found living under assumed names in San Jose, California. Their grandmother died two years ago. The Baskins' grandfather was arrested. The children's parents and two siblings hope to be reunited with Katharine and Robert.
