Keoni, Lance and Mason were abducted by their mother, Francina Fernandez.  On December 9, 2004, a state warrant was issued for Francina for kidnapping.  On February 4, 2005, a federal warrant was issued for Francina for International Parental Kidnapping.

Francina and the boys’ father, John Lee Smith, were never married.  When their relationship ended in 2001, a custody battle followed.  Francina accused Smith of abusing the children, but all of her allegations were dismissed.  In early November of 2004, Francina told Smith she was going to take the boys on a two-week vacation to New Zealand.  He told her the trip would be in violation of court orders and contacted his attorney.  On November 8, 2004, a judge ordered that none of the children could be taken out of the court’s jurisdiction by either parent, and that their passports had to be relinquished within 24 hours.  The boys’ passports were never turned over.  Shortly afterwards, Francina abruptly quit her job and left with Keoni, Lance and Mason.  They flew from Los Angeles, California to Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

Smith was awarded full custody of the boys after their abduction.  He was able to locate Francina and the boys in Manila and had a plan to travel there and get the boys back.  However, Francina learned of his intentions and the plan fell through.  He has not seen or heard from them since, though he was able to obtain pictures of the boys from their former school in manila.  In December 2010, Smith filed a lawsuit against Francina’s parents, alleging they helped plan and finance the children’s abductions.

The Fernandezes are believed to still be in the Philippines, but the Philippine government has not provided very much assistance in recovering them.
