Isaac and Rebecca Savoie

Rebecca and Isaac were abducted by their non-custodial mother, Noriko Savoie.  A felony warrant for parental kidnapping was issued for Noriko on August 17, 2009.

Isaac and Rebecca’s father, Christopher J. Savoie, is an American citizen.  He and Noriko married in 1995 and lived in Japan with their children until their separation in 2007.  Christopher obtained Japanese citizenship.  He returned to the United States after he separated from Noriko and she followed him there, although they didn’t live together.

They got a divorce in America and Christopher remarried, although they remained legally married according to Japanese law.  He and Noriko had agreed they would both stay in Tennessee and raise the children there.  According to Christopher, Noriko received an $800,000.00 divorce settlement as well as substantial alimony and child support.  According to their custody agreement, her primary residence would be in Tennessee.  Christopher would spend 180 days a year with Isaac and Rebecca, and Noriko would take the children to Japan for a 6-week vacation every summer.

However, immediately after the custody agreement was finalized Noriko began indicating she wanted to return to Japan with the children.

She stated she was concerned by the fact that the children losing their Japanese identity and becoming American.  Christopher filed for a restraining order to prohibit her from doing so.  Noriko challenged the order in court.  The judge permitted her to take Rebecca and Isaac to Japan for a six-week vacation, relying on her word that she would return them to the United States per the custody agreement.  She did, in fact, return them, but whilst in Japan, Noriko enrolled the children in Japanese schools and made other arrangements for a permanent relocation to that country.  After Noriko and the children returned to the U.S., without Christopher’s knowledge she packed up her, Rebecca and Isaac’s belongings and shipped them to Japan, and also transferred all her money from American to Japanese bank accounts.

When the 2009 school year started, Christopher learned his children hadn’t started the year at their Tennessee school; instead, their mother had taken them and fled in violation of the custody agreement and court order.  When Christopher told the family court what had happened, they immediately gave him sole custody of the children, but the order cannot be enforced as long as the children and Noriko are out of the country.

In late September 2009, Christopher flew to Japan to try and get the children back.  He met Rebecca and Isaac in rural Yanagawa, Japan while they were on their way to school with their mother.  Christopher took them from Noriko and drove to the United States consulate, almost 50 miles away, to get passports for them and fly back to America.  The Japanese police were waiting for him when he arrived and arrested him at the gate and jailed him for 17 days.  Immediately after his release, he left Japan and went home.  He has not had contact with the children since.

Isaac is described as a sweet, sensitive little man who enjoys baseball, soccer, swimming and playing Bakugan with his siblings.  Isaac is an extremely intelligent boy, scoring in the 98th percentile in standardized English and mathematics testing in Tennessee.  Rebecca is described as a creative, charismatic and fun-loving little girl who enjoys swimming, softball, singeing music and playing “twins” with her step-sister.  She, like her brother, was also exceptionally gifted in school studies.

The children’s abduction has received international attention in both American and Japanese media, but Christopher fears he will not see his son and daughter again until they are grown.  Although their whereabouts are known, they are considered to be missing as they are not with their custodial father.

  1. This is wrong. See:

    http://www.julieinjapan.com/2009/09/christopher-savoie-japan-child.html

    • I appreciate your interest in the case. However, this information is not incorrect. The link you have referred to has no cooberating facts for the statements they have made, while the information I have posted is all cooberated facts.
      Now let’s assume for one moment that what you have referred to is remotely correct, there is still an abduction. The father took the LEGAL steps neccessary to ensure he would have a relationship with his children. The mother took the children with the intent of concealing their whereabouts from him. THAT IS ILLEGAL and UNEXCUSABLE.
      The bottom line remains that the courts have made a ruling and they did so with all the information regarding the case, including some not privy to the public. They ruled in favor of the best interests of the children.
      It is time that people STOP defending the abductors.

  2. Biggest load of crap I’ve ever read in my life. Savoie cheats on poor Noriko, expects her to live in same city with home wrecking slut Amy – God bless you Noriko, where ever you are. Dumbass Savoie, your kids will hate you when they’re grown. Stick with your whore Amy and her kids.
