Man Convicted of Kidnapping Children Gets 38 Years in Prison

April 29, 2006 - Posted at 12:52 p.m. CST

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) _ A Jackson County man receives a 38-year

prison sentence in the disappearance of his two children in June of

2004.

Forty-three-year-old Daniel Porter has refused to say what

happened to the children since he picked them up from his ex-wife's

home for a weekend visit.

The daughter, Lindsey, was eight and her brother, Sam, was seven

when Porter took them.

Porter has given authorities various accounts of the children's

fate, leading to searches in Jackson County and northern Missouri,

all unsuccessful.

He was convicted in February of two counts each of parental

kidnapping and kidnapping with intent to terrorize his former wife.
