"Abduction is just a word until YOUR child is taken."
“Today I celebrate her birth again, but with tears of sorrow,” Brown said. “If I had one birthday wish for you Kaydance, it would be that you would be found and brought back to Canada. How can I summarize these months of misery? You can never begin to know the suffering of not knowing where your child is... Rather than celebrating your second birthday together Kaydance, I'm instead in a police room sending a plea to the world to ask for help in finding you. Kaydance should be in Canada celebrating her life; instead her life is being hidden away somewhere in the world." 09/26/16 Kaydance's 2nd Birthday
Please!! Help me find my daughter, Kaydance Paige Etchells, who was abducted by my wife, Lauren, from Vancouver Island, Canada on May 8, 2016.
After landing in England, on 05/22/16 Lauren fled across the English Channel & into Europe, where she continues to hide Kaydance from me & from the authorities. In the Schengen region* of Europe, travel is freely permitted without requiring proof of documentation (the Schengen region is comprised of *27 countries).
I believe there are a number of Etchell family members, & even some former mutual friends, who know where my wife is hiding Kaydance, but who have been persuaded to keep silent.
I ask these people to consider: Is it in Kaydance's best interest to spend her life being constantly uprooted & hidden away from the authorities? What kind of quality of life can a child have spent hiding in the shadows of society?
Lauren & I were scheduled to go before the Supreme Court of Canada & to be bound by the rulings of the Court in the matters of a shared custody arrangement & a legal separation. When it became apparent that the Court (being impartial) would not be rubber-stamping all of her demands, Lauren carried out her plan to abduct our child & flee from Canada.
Six days later I learned (from Brian Etchells) that my little girl had been stolen from me, & my whole world splintered into a million pieces.
Messages to My Wife
“Lauren, this is not how I envisioned our separation. And although Kaydance is only two, this will without a doubt be something that will impact her future. As good parents I am begging you to work with me to ensure Kaydance’s best interest is our No. 1 priority and that she is part of both her parents’ lives.” click here for source
"What Lauren has done is taken away Kaydance's freedom. Kaydance will be unable to grow up knowing her mum and her family. Lauren is causing Kaydance no end of psychological damage, including being unable to form any sort of trusting long-term relationship." ~ said Sgt. Jereme Leslie of the Saanich police in a press conference: click here for source
