Mother, son reunited after 31 years to speak at Toronto police headquarters

Jermaine Mann was less than two years old at the time.

A woman and her son who were reunited after an alleged parental abduction 31 years ago are scheduled to speak at a news conference Monday afternoon at Toronto police headquarters.

Lyneth's son was abducted in 1987 and finally reunited with her 31 years later. "I am the proof that after 31 long years of suffering one should never give up", she said.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said that his agency had held a conference on fugitive training in 2016 and said this very case was discussed with US law enforcement officials.

Officials say they notified Mann-Lewis that her son had been identified and located, and the two have since been reunited.

"All things are possible".

Lyneth Mann-Lewis of Brampton, Ont., and Jermaine Mann - who until recently was living under an alias in the USA - will be joined by Toronto's police chief and the Missing Children Society of Canada at the 1 p.m. ET news conference.

Authorities say he then entered the USA - where he had relatives - and obtained fake identification for himself and his son, including bogus Texas birth certificates.

On Friday morning, Mann-Lewis was about to board a flight to visit her long-lost son, but the flight was cancelled and she had to arrange another flight. Jermaine had been told his mother died shortly after his birth.

"They lived, basically, a life of lies as to who they were and what they did, unbeknownst to Jermaine", Banks said.

Flanked by officials with the Missing Children Society, she said she agonized over the pending reunion, especially after her original flight to CT was cancelled and the party had to catch a later flight.

A man arrested in CT on Friday wasn't afraid to use the court system, although he was accused of abducting his toddler son in 1987 and living under an assumed name.

Banks said Mann Jr.is now facing multiple criminal charges south of the border, but will be extradited to Canada to face one count of abduction in his son's disappearance.

The Mann case was publicly discussed at the session, he said, prompting a collaboration between Toronto police and the U.S. Marshals Service.

"The words 'your son is alive, we found him, ' that is breathtaking", she said. "He doesn't like to eat meat so I said I would cook chicken". "He hugged me and he kissed me and we held there for a long time".

She declined to say whether her son will readopt the name Jermaine or use the one he's known his whole life, adding she would respect his choice either way.

In the emotional briefing, she thanked Amanda Pick, CEO and investigator Ted Davis of the Missing Children Society of Canada for their unwavering belief and support. She urged others to never give up hope of finding their missing loved ones.

Allan Mann Jr., 66, had been using the name Hailee Randolph DeSouza when he was arrested in a Hartford suburb and charged with making false statements to federal officials and in transactions related to his government-subsidized housing, according to a press release.

After facing his charges in the U.S. Allan Mann is expected to be extradited to face an abduction charge in Canada.
