12-year-old Zachary Lee was found alive and well at a hotel in Lyme, N.H. late Monday night. His biological mother, Patricia Kane, was taken into custody without incident for questioning.
State Police received reports around 10:30 p.m. Monday that Lee was seen with Kane and his sister, Martha Lee, at a restaurant in Hanover, N.H. They were later located at the hotel.
Lee was reported missing shortly before 5 p.m. from his foster home in Sunderland after he never entered the home from being dropped off by the school bus.
The following counties were affected: Albany, Clinton, Columbia, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, St. Lawrence, Warren, Washington Counties.
Vermont State Police said Lee was recently repatriated from France. Authorities were concerned that Kane may take off with Lee due to incidents in the past when Kane attempted to in the Republic of France. Police said Kane is highly unstable.
Kane will be held for questioning in association for the disappearance of her son. Charges may be forthcoming stemming from the investigation being conducted by the Vermont State Police and in conjunction with the Bennington County State’s Attorney’s Office.
