Tammy Kongham captured

Missing Mom, 8-Year-Old Found:

Tammy Kongham has been captured. The woman who kidnapped her daughters from their school in Philadelphia and took them to live on the streets of Fort Lauderdale was taken into custody this morning. Her 8-year-old daughter was with her. As I previously posted Kongham sent away her 10-year-old daughter to wander the streets on her own because in Kongham’s mind it would make it harder for police to find her. Obviously that theory didn’t work out too well.

The article states that the Florida child endangerment charges might be waived to make for prosecution of the Pennsylvania kidnapping charges. Wouldn’t there be federal kidnapping charges since she took her kids across state lines?

Thanks to LadyJade for the tip.

FBI Charges Mom Who Is Still Missing With Daughter:

The FBI has now filed abduction charges against Tammy Kongham. She’s the woman who abducted her daughters from their school in Philadelphia then took them to live on the streets in Fort Lauderdale. The children were in the custody of a foster home. Kongham is said to be mentally ill.

As I posted before police found her 10-year-old daughter wandering in a mall because Kongham sent her away saying it would be easier for the cops to find her if they were together. Then why bother abducting her in the first place?

Kongham is still on the run with her 8-year-old daughter. Both have allegedly cut their hair short. The pictures show Kongham with her hair at both lengths. Police say that they’ve also worn disguises.

The FBI said that anyone assisting Korgham could also face prosecution.

Police Search For Mother, Sister Of Girl Found:

Police in Fort Lauderdale are searching for Tammy Kongham. She abducted her two daughters from their Philadelphia school and took them to Florida. Her 10-year-old daughter had been found wandering through a local mall. She told authorities that her, her mother and her 8-year-old sister had been living in a sand pit underneath a playground for two weeks.

Tammy Kongham is said to be mentally ill and did not have custody of her kids.

She allegedly sent the 10-year-old away so she wouldn’t be caught by police.
