An 8-year-old boy from Somerset, New Jersey, who went missing from his grandmother's home was found with his parents in New York Friday.
Michael and Amy Streko were arrested and have been charged with violating a court order after being discovered with Everett Streko in Port Jervis, New York, according to MyCentralJersey.com. Everett's legal guardian is his grandmother.
Everett was reported missing by his grandmother on July 17 when she came home to find both him and her daughter-in-law Amy, 32, who was living in the home, gone along with all of their possessions.
A subsequent investigation LED police to the home of 34-year-old Michael Streko, where it was determined that Michael had backed up and left the residence in his 1997 Winnebago. The parents were deemed suspects and a reward was offered for information leading to their whereabouts.
A video published on Michael's personal Facebook page in May shows Michael, Amy, and Everett inside the Winnebago, describing a road trip they were planning across the country where they intended to perform live shows with celebrity interviews.
The first planned stop on the trip, according to the video, was June 29 in New York. A Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund the trip but was taken down after raising $577 of a $25,000 goal.
It is still unclear why Michael and Amy, Everett's biological parents, do not have custody of the boy. They have been charged by the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office with third-degree custodial interference, according to MyCentralJersey.com.
