Missing Lakeville Girls Found in Western Minnesota
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota authorities say they have located two teen-aged sisters from Lakeville who have been missing for more than two years.
A lieutenant from the suburban police department told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the girls were found Wednesday at a horse ranch in western Minnesota.
Gianna and Samantha Rucki, now 16 and 17 years old respectively, hadn't been seen in public since April 2013 after disappearing in a custody dispute. The girls' mother, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, was arrested last month in Florida but has declined to provide information on their whereabouts to investigators.
Grazzini-Rucki is in the Dakota County jail after her arrest on charges of felony deprivation of parental rights.
In November 2013, a Dakota County judge granted David Rucki full custody of his children.
