    Details of Disappearance

    Gunnar and his sister Kianna disappeared from Fairfax, Virginia on August 22, 2009. They were abducted by their non-custodial mother, Naoko Numakami. A photograph and vital statistics for Numakami are posted below this case summary. A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for her on October 15, 2010. Numakami took Gunnar and Kianna to Japan, telling their father, Douglass Berg, that it was just for a vacation. She then refused to return them. Douglass has not had any contact with the children since the time of their abductions, but he believes they are still in Japan.

    Gunnar and Kianna's cases remain unsolved.
