MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – A McKinney mother is being reunited with her missing children in Memphis Monday.
Michele Bisconti embarked on a long drive this morning to Tennessee where authorities arrested her ex-husband. Craig Allen Guresh is accused of luring his 10 and 14 year old kids outside of their mother’s McKinney home on Friday night despite a previous arrest for parental kidnapping.
“My prayers were answered,” says Bisconti. “I was so shocked and so happy I was just so glad it didn’t take as long as last time.”
McKinney Police issued an Amber Alert and the boy and girl were found safe after authorities spotted the father’s license plate on a vehicle parked outside a motel near Memphis. It’s the second time authorities say Guresh took his children.
In September, Guresh fled with 10 year old Kaitlyn and 14 year old Camren to Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming before he was found in Montana when neighbors became suspicious because the two were not attending school there. Their mother says she’s not only had to deal with repeated abductions, but also the father’s efforts to turn their children against her.
“I wish it was a happy reunion on both sides its just going to be on my side unfortunately,” says Bisconti.
Guresh also faces bigamy charges for allegedly marrying again before his divorce was final.
Authorities have charged Guresh with felony kidnapping and have set his bail at $1 million.
