The detectives knew who abducted 5-year-old Richard Wayne Landers Jr. in 1994.
His paternal grandparents, reportedly angry about a custody case involving the small boy, took him and disappeared from Indiana.
For 19 years, Indiana State Police searched for him, but it was last October when the missing boy case turned into one of changed identities.
According to a news release on the state police website, a detective was given Landers' Social Security card. He matched it to a 24-year-old man in central Minnesota about 100 miles from Minneapolis.
Police looked at the man's driver's license photo. It could be him, they thought, comparing it to the photo of Landers as a boy.
Some months of detective work followed and police found the grandparents, who they say admitted to assuming new names, in a town near Landers, who has been living under a name given to him by his grandparents.
Landers is married with a child on the way. It is unclear when he will be reunited with his mother, Lisa Harter, and her husband.
Charges in Indiana against the grandparents were dropped in 2008.
A spokesman with the Indiana State Police said the FBI and Social Security Administration also were investigating the case.

silent ghost
he was taken because he was living in a car with his parents and grandparents figured they could give him a "better life". maybe,maybe not. ok so what does this guy do for a living? how were his grades in school? was he a kid always in trouble,even into adult hood,or a model citizen.
I have a few more questions about this too...

THEY WERE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE IT SEEMS


Police said his paternal grandparents, unhappy with the custody proceedings, took him from his home in Wolcottville, Indiana and brought him 675 miles away to Long Prairie, Minnesota.

An Indiana mother whose former in-laws allegedly abducted her son nearly 20 years ago was not homeless at the time, the woman's lawyer said, refuting claims that the grandparents needed to step in because she was unable to care for the boy.
