Spokane police: missing mom & children found in Portland

SPOKANE, Wash. - On Thursday Spokane Police learned that Portland, Oregon Police have located both Ronnie Adams and Athena Lyons Thursday afternoon. Portland Police are working with Spokane CPS to coordinate the safe return of the children.

Patricia Lyons enrolled Athena in an elementary school in Portland and Athena was attending school. Police located Athena at the school and Ronnie at a local motel. Patricia was contacted at the motel, but was not taken into custody.


Spokane Police detectives have spent the past several days investigating a domestic assault that occurred between Patricia Lyons and her ex boyfriend. Patricia allegedly stabbed her ex boyfriend in the hand last Saturday afternoon in Spokane. Patricia left the scene prior to police arrival, and has been on the run since then.


Child Protective Services were made aware of the domestic assault on Monday. CPS petitioned the court for an order to remand the children back into the State of Washington's custody, for the children are legally wards of the state. Patricia had physical custody of the children, as long as she was following state issued guidelines.


Spokane police have obtained an arrest warrant for Lyons for 2nd degree Assault. At the time Patricia Lyons was contacted by Portland Police, a valid warrant had not made it into the criminal justice computer system. Spokane Police are working to get that warrant in the system, and have been in contact with Portland Police, and hope to have Lyons in custody soon.
