(Newser) – New York City cops are seeking a fugitive mother and her eight children—seven of whom have the same name. Shanel Nadal, 28, abducted her seven boys, between the ages of 4 and 11, and baby girl after a group visit at a foster care agency, police say. The boys are all named Nephra Payne after their father, who may also be traveling with the family, reports the New York Times. Authorities have not revealed why the children were placed in foster homes.

So sorry for the children as they are probably better off in foster care than with a mother like that (allegedly the father is with them). At least it not Japan where fathers have no rights - read some stories of US children abducted to Japan
