Mother, son reunited after 31 years to speak at Toronto police headquarters

The mother of a toddler abducted in 1987 said Monday she was stunned when she learned he had been found and overcome with emotion at finally being reunited with him 31 years later.

More than 30 years ago, Lyneth Mann-Lewis' 21-month-old son vanished after visiting his father.

Allan Mann Jr., 66, had been using the name Hailee Randolph DeSouza when he was arrested in a Hartford suburb and charged with making false statements to federal officials and in transactions related to his government-subsidized housing, according to a press release.

Mann-Lewis said after 31 years of suffering, she now feels like she's proof that parents of missing children shouldn't give up hope. "He was under the impression that his mother had died shortly after birth". "The moment I found that my son was alive ... words can't express it", Mann-Lewis said Monday during a press conference at Toronto police headquarters.

It's unclear if he has obtained an attorney, and he's expected to be extradited to Canada, where he may face additional charges.

"I looked at him, I sat on him and then I cooked for him", she said. "Be patient, be strong, and believe that all things are possible". Officials then notified Jermaine Mann's mother that her son had been found. Investigators said Jermaine, not even 2 years old, had been taken by his father after a court-ordered visit in Toronto.

Probably Jermaine will live in United States, because he - arranged life in CT, but according to Lynette, they will always visit each other.

US officials said Mann Jr. has dual Canadian and Ghanaian citizenship, and was found living under the name Hailee DeSouza in subsidized housing in Vernon, about 20 kilometres east of Hartford. "Finally he said, 'Mom I love you, ' and I said, 'I love you too son, '" she recounted.

She said her son replied: "Mummy you have my eyes' and he hugged me, and he kissed me, and we held there for a long time". A forensic specialist from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children compared a photo of Allan Mann to the CT driver's license for DeSouza and determined they were the same person. "I touched him and said, 'Oh my God, my baby, '" she said.

The investigation has involved multiple U.S. agencies, including HUD, the U.S. Marshals, the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, as well as the Toronto Police Service and the RCMP.

She said her son has had a chance to speak by phone to his half-brother, Mann-Lewis' child by another marriage.

Canada's national missing persons registry now lists 165 people who disappeared as children.

"From the moment I first talked to Amanda I knew...she would also be an extremely great person, (she) helped me through this ordeal and kept the positivity throughout the time I have known her, and for that I am very grateful".

Jermaine was seen weeping as his dad appeared in a local federal court - just hours after learning the truth about his mother, the Courant reported.
