Teenage Groom Found in Ohio
Feb. 09, 2006
DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ A 15-year-old boy whose 37-year-old wife is due to give birth to the couple's baby this month was found in Ohio after disappearing from a juvenile home, authorities said.
Lisa Clark, was charged with hindering the apprehension of a child in connection with his disappearance, said Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller. She is expecting the teenager's baby in about a week.
Richard Mecum of the U.S. Marshals Service said authorities tracked the boy to a residence in Cleveland through a package Clark mailed. The package contained a cell phone and a hefty sum of money.
Posing as a delivery man, a deputy dropped the package off at the home and was able to determine that the boy was living there, authorities said. Mecum said the residents were unaware that he was a runaway.
Clark, who was lodged in the Douglas County Jail, is expecting the teenager's baby in a week to 10 days. Her attorney, Dan Sammons, said last week she had no role in his vanishing and had no idea where he was.
The two were wed in November. Clark, who was previously charged with child molestation, was released on bond on the condition that she not have contact with the teen.
Clark has said she still hopes to make a life with the child groom and their baby.
