KNOWN CIRCUMSTANCES :
Abduction of Alexander & Christopher

Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS and her ex-husband Stephen WATKINS have been separated since August, 2004. They live separately and have 2 children together, Alexander WATKINS (June-7-2001) and Christopher WATKINS (April-1-2004). As of January 26th 2009, the Ontario Court of Justice at 47 Sheppard Avenue East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada issued a Final Court Order dealing with custody issues. In that Order, Stephen WATKINS was awarded Sole Custody of the children and Edyta WATKINS was given access to Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS on alternate weekends, from Friday at the end of school until Monday at the beginning of school.

This final Order was issued despite the fact that both Judicial Judges, the Honorable Justice H. Brownstone and the Honorable Madam Justice G. Waldman, were fully aware through legal motions brought up by the Stephen WATKINS’s lawyer and by the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Toronto (CCAS) during Family Court and throughout the Custody Trial that Edyta WATKINS had NO fixed address, had lied during the trial where she lived, was evading the CCAS case workers and denied having in her possession two (2) Canadian Passports issued to the children in 2006 that had been ordered handed over to CCAS in Court Motions heard by the Honorable Justice H. Brownstone on November 21, 2007, December 18, 2007 and January 29, 2008.

On January 29, 2008, the Honorable Justice H. Brownstone had Ordered that Alexander Watkins and Christopher Watkins were:

#7 - NOT to be taken outside of the Province of Ontario, Canada without a Court Order

#8 - NO Passports were to be issued for either child without a Court Order

Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS have been living with their father, Stephen WATKINS, since December 2007, after the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Toronto apprehended the children over concerns of mental / physical abuse by Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS and both her parents. The Honorable Justice H. Brownstone of the Ontario Family Courts ruled that the CCAS had the authority to place the children with Stephen WATKINS as he already had a Joint-Custody Agreement enforced as of February 16th, 2006.

On Friday March 6th 2009, Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS father, Tadeusz ( TED ) Ustaszewski, was confirmed by the school to be alone when he picked-up the children from their school and daycare to have a weekend access with their mother.

On Monday March 9th 2009, Stephen WATKINS advised York Regional Police that Edyta WATKINS or her father, Tadeusz ( Ted ) USTASZEWSKI had not returned the two children after her scheduled Court Ordered weekend access visit. The children’s school called and advised Stephen WATKINS that Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS were not dropped off in the morning.

Stephen WATKINS advised York Regional Police that he feared Edyta WATKINS would attempt to abduct the children, as she had not turned in their Canadian Passports as required by a previous Court Order issued on November 21, 2007 and that Edyta WATKINS had family living in Chicago, USA, in Torun, Poland and in Warsaw, Poland.

Durham Regional Police were requested to attend Edyta WATKINS residence and found no one home.

York Regional Police spoke with Edyta WATKINS father, Tadeusz ( Ted ) USTASZEWSKI who was able to confirm that he had dropped his daughter and the two children off in Niagara Falls, New York on Sunday March 8th 2009 some time before 12:00pm (noon).

Canada Border Services Agency was able to advise York Regional Police that Tadeusz ( Ted ) USTASZEWSKI returned to Canada alone at approximately 4:15 pm the same day.

On March 10th 2009, the US Department of Homeland Security advised York Regional Police that they had confirmed that Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS and the children Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS had left on Northwestern Flight 52 from Detroit via Rochester, NY, USA to Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday March 8th, 2009.

Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS left Canada and entered the United States and then traveled through German Customs in Frankfurt, Germany on a Canadian Passport that the Family Responsibility Office (FRO) in Ontario claims and reported verified was “suspended” on January 26th 2009 (Suspension of Federal Licenses), 42 days prior to the abduction on March 8th, 2009 as a Provincial Enforcement Measure by the Province of Ontario for lack of child support payments.

Based on the above information, York Regional Police in Ontario, Canada believe that this was a planned abduction and requested that a Warrant in the First be issued for Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS for committing the offence of Abduction in Contravention of a Custody Order, contrary to Section 282 of the Canadian Criminal Code.

York Regional Police, through the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), has requested INTERPOL to issue a “YELLOW NOTICE” for Alexander WATKINS (June-7-2001) and Christopher WATKINS (April-1-2004) . INTERPOL’s “YELLOW NOTICE” notifies all Police agencies in member countries to help locate missing persons, often minors, or to help identity persons who are unable to identify themselves. More information can be found here: INTERPOL Notices.

On April 1st 2009, York Regional Police upgraded for Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS Ontario Provincial Arrest Warrant to a Canada-wide warrant for her arrest.

An INTERPOL “RED NOTICE” for Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS is currently under review.

While the York Regional Police was investigating Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS father, Tadeusz ( Ted ) USTASZEWSKI’s involvement in the abduction of Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS, he left Canada and traveled to his native home land of Poland a few weeks later.

Tadeusz Ustaszewski lives in Toronto, Canada but owns a residence in Warsaw, Poland.

Members of her extended family who reside in Chicago have confirmed that Edyta ( Ustaszewski ) WATKINS. Alexander WATKINS and Christopher WATKINS are now in Poland where Edyta was born and still has family although they may have also traveled or relocated in the countries of Germany and Austria.
