Missing boy returned to dad

Staff report

A missing 14-year-old has been located and returned to his father, and the boy's mother faces a charge of custodial interference.

Paducah police reported Wednesday that Jordan L. Harmon called his guidance counselor at Paducah Middle School. The counselor brought him to the police station at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. He was returned to his father, Johnny Harmon, in good health, police spokeswoman Robin Newberry said in a news release.

Harmon was reported missing Aug. 12. His father, who has custody of the youth, told police that he was moving to Tennessee and his son was upset because he did not want to move, Newberry said.

Jordan's mother, Valaria George, told police she had last seen Jordan on the front porch of her North 21st Street home at 10:23 a.m. Aug. 12. She said she left to visit friends, and when she returned home, the boy was gone.

Johnny Harmon told Officer Gretchen Morgan the next day that George had stated Jordan was not missing, and would reappear at the next court hearing regarding custody. Morgan questioned George, who denied knowledge of her son's whereabouts.

Morgan obtained a warrant charging George with custodial interference and arrested her at 7 p.m. Aug. 13. She was jailed, then released on $250 bond that evening.
