PITTSBURGH (AP) – A Pennsylvania mother charged with concealing information about twins who welfare workers haven’t been able to locate for 10 years says they’re living with a family friend in Georgia.
Forty-seven-year-old Patricia Fowler, of Penn Hills, told that to WTAE-TV in an interview Wednesday.
Police have accused Fowler of giving various stories about where the children are – none of which checked out. They’d be about 17 now and were reported missing by Allegheny County caseworkers last month, more than two weeks after four other children were removed from Fowler’s home at the request of caseworkers.
Penn Hills police Chief Howard Burton wouldn’t comment on confirm the station’s report that detectives spoke to one of the twins by phone.
Fowler hasn’t returned AP’s calls and her phone is now disconnected.
