Police Looking for Grandma Who Abducted 8-Year-Old Grandson

Police say they've made numerous attempts to locate the 52-year-old grandmother to no avail and now consider her to be at large with the O'Fallon boy in her custody.

O'Fallon Police are looking for a woman they say abducted her 8-year-old grandson in December 2012 and is now refusing to give the boy back to his mother. 

According to an O'Fallon release, Donna Marie Andres, 52, abducted the boy from his O'Fallon home on West Park Drive on Dec. 26, 2012. Since then, Andres has refused to to give the boy back to his mother, who has court-ordered legal guardianship.

Police say they've made numerous attempts to locate Andres to no avail and now consider her to be at large with the boy in her custody. 

Andres is being charged with child abduction.

O'Fallon Patch will have more on this story as details become available.

Wow there is some hate coming my way on this one. I kinda care what you people think. But you wouldn't know everything that I have done and do unless I told you. All I really wanted to say when I seen this story is that he was safe I know that bc I know his grandmother. Maybe she didn't do the right thing but she did it bc she thought she was protecting my son. This would have been worked out one way or anouther. To bad that it had to go down like a head line Hoosier story.

And I didn't have anything to do with keeping him away from the mom I was in contact with the mom the whole time. I've always went through the court and did what it has told me I don't fight it I was not a part of this or my picture would have been up there too

I would like to say I'm a friend of the family. I have seen with my own eyes the verbal and phyiscal abuse the mother is toward Sam. I have watched her up and leave for months without calling him. This is a game to her. She is selfish and using Sam as a token that she has won in this matter. She lies all the time, so beware! Jessica doesn't have that bond that a mother and child build at birth. She treats him like a younger brother with no patience and a pain in her ass. She will abuse Sam for all that has happened and I only pray that Donna or Matt gets full custody of Sam. She doesn't derserve this child now after never being around in his life when he was younger, and when she was there she treated her cats better than her own child! Donna was protecting Sam and I back her. It might not have been legal, but then our legal system sucks. Sometimes you have to put things into your own hands to make sure that someone is safe. Matt don't worry about the hate you are getting on this site. These people have no idea what is really going on and just wants to flap their lips.
