Sisters Missing For 2 Years Back With Father In Lakeville
LAKEVILLE (AP) - Two teenage sisters who had been missing for more than two years have moved back with their father in Lakeville after they were found living secretly at a horse ranch in western Minnesota.
Seventeen-year-old Samantha Rucki and her 16-year-old sister Gianna went missing in April of 2013 when their parents were in the middle of a bitter divorce. Their mother is accused of leading them to believe their father abused them. A court later determined there was no evidence that had happened.
Last month a judge reaffirmed David Rucki's parental rights and the girls were sent to reunification counseling. Their mother is charged with keeping the girls from their father. The owners of the Herman ranch where the girls were found also face charges.
David Rucki says he'll continue work to rebuild his family.
