"Unfortunately, these parents and these poor children, these innocent ones, will now be in a country where there are no laws, there is no redress, and that has been a refuge for fugitives and wanted criminals for many years." - Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R- Florida, on news that the missing Hakken family has been located in Cuba, CNN reports. The father of the family, Josh Hakken, is accused of kidnapping his two sons, of whom he and his wife lost custody, from their grandmother's house in Florida last week. Hakken and his wife, Sharyn, lost custody of the boys temporarily after police found narcotics and weapons hotel room where the couple was staying with the boys. Custody was permanently severed after Josh Hakken threatened the boys' foster parents with a gun and then fled when police were called.
