My daughter, Rebecca Briggs, was kidnapped by her non custodial
mother, Theresa Endicott. I have custody of Rebecca. I have
spent a large portion of the last part of 1998 looking for
Rebecca, and trying to clear my name of false allegations made
by Theresa Endicott.
Theresa was served a "writ of habeus corpus" on November 20th 1998,
a Friday. This is a court order demanding the return of Rebecca
to the state of Washington.
November 23rd 1998, I was served an injunction while I waited in
a court room in Lincolnton NC. Lincoln county judge Larry Wilson
did not let me speak, but told me that Rebecca would only be
returned to Washington state when an official from Child
Protective Services (CPS) in Wenatchee WA was able to take
custody of Rebecca in North Carolina.
An attorney for Department of Social Services in Lincolnton NC
was suppose to approve such an order "expeditiously". Weeks later
after there was still not an order issued to return Rebecca to
her home, CPS in Wenatchee said they were not going to pick
up Rebecca. December 20th 1998, CPS Wenatchee sent me a
letter telling me that their investigation was complete. Their
findings were "non conclusive". Meanwhile Rebecca was turned
over to Theresa's parents in Vale NC.
The Lincoln county and Catawba county sheriff's departments were
professional, and courteous to me while I was in NC looking for
Rebecca. I thank them for the great job they did, and continue to
It is the Department of Social Services that has shown an obvious
bias against me. DSS of Lincoln county has ignored court orders
of Washington state, and returned little Rebecca to the house of
hate. They continue today to delay the process of returning a
child to her proper home.
In the coming months I will link pages with the documents
concerning this injustice. Please check back for updates.
