Father accused of kidnapping son from Canada 31 years ago

Mann-Lewis is the mother of Jermaine Mann, who police say was abducted by his father in 1987.

Allan Mann has filed several lawsuits over the years that allege discrimination by his employers and the apartment complex where he has lived with his son since 2004, according to the Courant.

He and his father lived under assumed names in the U.S. until late last week, when his father was caught allegedly using falsified documents.

"It's been a long and hard 31-year journey since my son was abducted", she said. "He was under the impression that his mother had died shortly after birth".

The following day, Mann-Lewis, who said she never stopped believing that her son would be found, was flown down to CT for an emotional reunion.

The 66-year-old Mann was produced in a federal court in Hartford on charges of making false statements in transactions with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

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

"Hailee was very close to his son", said the neighbor. "I touched him and said, "Oh my God, my baby".

"Believe that all things are possible", she told reporters who gathered for an emotional news conference at Toronto police headquarters.

Now 33 years old, he's been overwhelmed by the last few days and is choosing to keep his privacy.

Allan Mann Jr. led a "life of lies" while illegally in the U.S., Toronto police Det.

On Thursday, Mann-Lewis was informed that U.S. Marshals - using technology such as facial identification - had located her son living with his biological father outside of Hartford, Connecticut.

The investigation has involved multiple USA agencies as well as Toronto police and the RCMP. "You never take a child from his mother without giving them a chance to make their own decisions".

Wanting to cook for her son, Mann-Lewis went to a supermarket and purchased enough chicken and vegetables for a feast - only to learn that her son prefers not to eat meat. He hugged me and he kissed me and we held for a long time'. "I am the proof that after 31 long years of suffering one should never give up", she was quoted as saying by CBC News.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said that his agency had held a conference on fugitive training in 2016 and said this very case was discussed with United States law enforcement officials.

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.
