"I couldn't tell you anything about him," a distraught Neves told reporters Friday, adding that she only knew of the cousin by his first name Joe. "I can't tell you how they could have taken her from a family that absolutely adores her."

He said a DSS social worker accompanied him, and she said, ''Haleigh, this is Harry." ''Give him the yellow duck," the social worker said, according to Spence's recollection. Haleigh picked up the yellow duck, he said. ''Where's Curious George?" the social worker asked Haleigh. Haleigh then picked up the stuffed animal, Spence said. ''It's an astounding case," he...
