Shannon Germanton Shannon Germanton

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Police in Post Falls had contact with a Spokane Valley woman and her two young children the night before the boys were found abandoned near a construction site along Interstate 90.
    
Police Chief Scot Haug tells the Coeur d'Alene Press (http://bit.ly/YrEoLf ) someone called police at about 8 p.m. to report Shannon Germanton had been in the Walmart bathroom for 30 minutes with her children and a gas can.
    
Haug says she told officers she ran out of gas and was expecting someone to pick them up. He says she was acting "a little bizarre, but it was nothing out of the ordinary."
    
Kootenai County Sheriff's Lt. Stu Miller says Germanton told investigators she doesn't remember anything after leaving Walmart.
    
Germanton is charged with two counts of felony injury to a child.

    STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. - It's been nearly two years since anyone has seen or heard from Paul Brazeau. He was last seen at his son's wedding. His brokenhearted family reached out to KHQ's Hayley Guenthner with a letter asking for his case to be featured in our Q6 Cold Case series. The day Paul vanished started out so wonderful. "It was a happy day," said Paul's aunt Georgine Glatt.
