I sit here in front of my computer at 1 am, still not being able to sleep much. Part of me wishes I had not looked in my emails only to find about this message on my Facebook from AMC (Alert Missing Child). Then again another part of me is glad I did so I can try to help get this out to everyone.

I read that the Spokane police are now searching for a woman, Patricia Lyons, 25 that they have a warrant out for a second degree assault charge. The problem is that they need to find her in order to arrest her.

athena-lyons.jpgThey believe Lyons has her two children, 5 year old daughter, Athena Lyons and her 2 year old son, Ronnie Adams. Athena is described as being 43 inches tall and she weighs about 52 lbs. Ronnie weighs about 32 lbs and he is 3 ft tall. Patricia Lyons is about 5 ft 6 in tall and she weighs about 150 lbs.

Apparently the two children had been placed as wards of the State of Washington but recently they had been returned to the mother under court ordered restrictions. Patricia Lyons has violated those restrictions when she allegedly got involved in a recent domestic violence assault. Police say that she stabbed her ex-boyfriend. Now the children will be returned to state custody under a court order that Child Protection Services has obtained but they can’t get them unless they can find the mother.

ronnie-adams.jpgOne news release states that Lyons is not in a healthy mental state and may be suicidal. CPS and the police are concerned that with her state of mind, her children could very well be in harm’s way. Lyons is believed to be driving a white Chevy Lumina with Washington license plates 229XWX.

If you or someone you know has any information on Patricia Lyon’s whereabouts to please dial 911 and report it.

patricia-lyons.jpgI don’t know why CPS made these children wards of the state to begin with and I don’t know the circumstances about this assault charge they have on her. Maybe her ex-boyfriend was beating on her and she stabbed him as self defense. Maybe she grabbed her kids and ran to protect them from him, who knows. I don’t know the whole story, this is all the information I can find on it. I just mainly pray that she comes to her senses and brings the children home and can explain what happened.

For those of you that have babies or grandbabies give them a hug and let them know you love them, hell it doesn’t matter how old they are they still need to feel your love, not just being told they are. Cherish your children and help protect them. One day you will be proud that you did.

As I always say, my prayers are out for this family. I pray they are safe and are found soon. My list keeps growing for prayers, and it breaks my heart to see so many needs this kind of a prayer but I won’t give up on them. God Bless ALL the children in our world.
