Richard Wayne Landers Jr. went missing in Indiana nearly 20 years ago and has been found alive, well and married in Minnesota.



A boy who went missing in Indiana nearly 20 years ago has been found alive, well and married in Minnesota.

Richard Wayne Landers Jr. was abducted by his grandparents on July 29, 1994, according to state police.

The then-five-year-old was considered "missing and endangered" when he disappeared in Wolcottville, IN.

Warrants were issued for Richard and Ruth Landers, but charges were dropped in 2008 after police could find no trace of either the boy or his grandparents.

But Landers' parents continued to search for their son, police said in a release Thursday.

Landers' stepfather gave detectives the boy's Social Security card last October, and detectives found a man, who turned out to be the missing boy, using the number in Long Prairie, MN.

The grandparents, who are from his father's side, are living in Browerville, Minn., under aliases but admitted their identities to police and verified that the 24-year-old man is Landers.
